Thanksgiving in Paradise
Paradise is small-town America, located along the shore of Paradise Lake, with the normal collection of small-town businesses – the kind of place most of us might like to visit. Near the center of town sits the bank, the police station, and the town hall. And that was the problem. On Tuesday, October 31, the Town Hall had exploded. At least two were dead, several were injured, and “TJ” Jensen was trapped in the building which was about to collapse. She would be free, but it would take three weeks to identify the guilty party.
Kathi Daley is a capable writer whose cozy mysteries I have enjoyed in the past. As expected, the characters are interesting and believable. The same can be said about the scenic setting in which Paradise calls home. However, Thanksgiving in Paradise takes an approach to resolving the mystery of the bombed town hall that this reader found disappointing. Rather than slowly uncovering clues during the course of the story, the author seems to drop clues from nowhere on to the amateur and professional detectives that form the core of the story. Of course the same is true for the reader. Henery Press and Kathi Daley have done better. I was left feeling disappointed.
