My rating: 4/5
Many things about this book felt like a breath of fresh air but are less common in a cozy mystery.
Most cozy mysteries I have read are told in first person which can be awesome or awful. This one is told in third person limited. At first that really caught me off guard. I can’t say that I loved it but it was a nice change though certainly felt less intimate.
I also loved that Caprice was a home-stager. It isn’t a job you see much in cozy mysteries though book store/cafe/knitting stores are a dime a dozen.
The mystery was decent though nothing that especially stood out. I did have a harder time feeling close to Caprice than I do with many other mysteries but not sure if it was because this is the first of the series I have read or because of the narration.
I think I will try other books in the series but they won’t be at the top of my to read pile.
Overall a decent book to pick up.
