Praise for Death Takes a Bath:
"A whale of a read! Dip your toe into Death Takes a Bath, and you won’t come out until you’ve reached ‘the end.” A highly recommended page-turner with archaeology, intrigue, an intrepid heroine, a dishy policeman, and . . . a rabbit."
~ Molly MacRae, Author: The Highland Bookshop Mystery Series
"An exciting page-turner! It captured my attention from the first line and kept me riveted until the final twist."
~ Avanti Centrae, international bestselling author of Cleopatra's Vendetta
The novel gets off to a good start with character interaction. Maddie is an interesting heroine. She is over reactive, frequently feeling faint or hyperventilating or being a little clumsy. That brings more drama to scenes than we would see with a stronger woman. Edward is certainly and interesting hero too. He is as reserved as Maddie is the opposite. The possible romance between the two was a good additional element.
The setting is written well. I liked learning some about English archaeology and Roman influence in the area. Lynn described well the places Maddie visits. I learned how cheddar cheese got its name too. The mystery was fine and I did not anticipate the villain among the suspects.
This is a good cozy mystery with interesting characters and location. Maddie grew stronger through her adventures in this novel and I look forward to seeing her and Edward in another.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
