Blog Tour: The Eggstone Murders by Herbert L. Smith

Cozy Mystery
Date Published: 7/2013

A thick-headed sheriff, a young, unsure, wannabe detective, and a savvy older criminal-turned-investigator, are only the beginning of the cast of characters included in this story of small-town life in southwestern Iowa, set in 1952.

Enjoy the storms, the intrigues and the mid-western hospitality – including the wonderful food –

of Hillville, Iowa as its down-to-earth folks work their way through the dailyness of their quiet lives.  There are the murders, of course, which cause dismay, but the con-man turned detective, Guy, is able to resolve them after a few bumps, and the guilty are punished – or, as is sometimes Guy’s choice, forgiven.

As a whole, it’s a pleasant outing on an Iowa summer’s day.

My Review:
Everything from the premise of this book to the characterization was just wonderfully done. I really did enjoy this book. It was an escape, and it was a quick and easy read. I thouroughly enjoyed the novel and it was very well written and had plenty of surprises along the way to keep the readeers interest.
