One of my favorite authors for a romance with depth and a hilarious voice is Jenny B Jones. So when I heard she was writing cozy mystery, I was intrigued by this departure from her usual style. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her YA and I love her adult novels. Engaged in Trouble was completely worth the wait.
I love Jenny B Jones’ comedic voice and Engaged in Trouble has it in spades. The mystery is interesting. The characters really enjoyable. I loved the supporting characters and the interactions between the heroine and her grandma and neighbor. Life is not proceeding in a straight line for Paisley. She’s got immense hurts and doubts that are forced to the surface by her return home. Add in an ex-fiance, his murdered bride-to-be and a host of trouble, and the book is plain fun. And the pacing is pitch perfect. Set in small town Arkansas, the book is an ode to small towns.
If you’re looking for a fun book with a light touch on some serious issues, this book is perfect. It’s a quick read that will have you snorting out loud.
Also, I wanted y’all to know that Canteen Dreams is FREE, yes free!, for a limited time in all ebook formats. You can access those here. The audio book for Canteen Dreams also just released.
