5/5 Do-it-yourself Snowglobes
On The Back:
Curio shop manager Camryn Brooks thought she’d seen every kind of snow globe—until she saw one depicting a crime scene…
Ever since she was a child, Cami has loved the sparkling beauty of snow globes, and now, she sells them. In fact, they’re so popular, Cami and her friend—coffee shop owner Alice “Pinky” Nelson—are hosting a snow globe making class.
After the flurry of activity has ended and everyone has gone off with their own handmade snow globes, Cami spots a new globe left behind on a shelf, featuring an odd tableau—a man sleeping on a park bench.
On her way home, she drifts through the town park and is shaken to come upon the scene from the globe—a man sitting on a bench. But he isn’t sleeping—he has a knife in his back. When the police arrive, it’s clear they consider Cami a little flaky and possibly a suspect. After her friends also come under suspicion, Cami starts plowing through clues to find the cold-blooded backstabber—before someone else gets iced…
An amazing start to a new series, I finished this book in just over a day, making it a fast, enjoyable read that I didn’t want to end.
The characters were all well-written. Pinky, Erin, Cami, Clint, Archi, and Mark were all well-written characters that I could easily picture in any town. I especially loved Clint and Cami, however.
The setting was great, too, I could picture the shops perfectly, along with the town. The entire area sounded like a perfect area to live, and own a small business.
One down point, to me anyway, was the length of the chapters. When I read a book I like it to have chapters around 5-10 pages each, so I can always end at the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. This book, however, had longer chapters tat were 15+ pages each, with the exception of the last few chapters. This is simply a personal preference, however, and it would not stop me from recommending the book.
Overall a quick, fun read with great characters! I can’t wait for another installment of this series!
