Book Review ~ A Crafty Killing by Lorraine Barlett ~ 4/27/17

 The last thing Katie Bonner wanted was to become the manager of Artisans Alley. But when her business partner, Ezra Hilton, is found bludgeoned to death, she has no other choice. Business under Ezra has been faltering-but was it enough to provoke someone to murder? Only Katie can find the answer.    

My Thoughts:
I'm loving cozies right now!  This book was so much fun to read.
I would love to comb through the Artisan Alley and look at all the vendors' wares.
I enjoyed getting to know Katie and some of the other vendors even though in the back of my mind I was trying to figure out who killed Ezra!
I really liked "watching" Katie put new ideas into place in an effort to bring some life back to the Alley and to Victoria Square.  It is a place I would like to visit and watch transform.
There are a few "unsavory" words that I'm not used to reading in my "inspirational" books, but nothing too horrible.
Do you like cozy mysteries?
