Hour 1: Mayhem at the Orient Express by Kylie Logan

I loved this cozy mystery! The island setting in snow made the book even more magical.  I found the characters realistic, but also unique.  Chandra or Sandy makes me laugh as I picture her running around with her herbs.  Kate is the woman I have always wanted to be but never will.  Bea is the wonderful main character who struggles with her past enough to accept her future.  The storyline is hilarious: the act that sets the story in motion made me laugh.  Jerry Garcia, the cat, peeing in Bea’s pansies leading to a drag-out fight in the court is the perfect combination of humor with annoyance.  I loved Bea’s kindness in helping others.  The plot of the story connects with Agatha Christie’s  Murder of the Orient Express.  Kylie Logan, the author, manages to modernize Christie’s story while still preserving the classical story.  I do not want to spoil the story, so I will stop there before I get too excited.  This is a must-read for any cozy mystery fans!!!
