This should be everything a fan of cozy mysteries could want. All the necessary aspects are present: amateur sleuth, small town, kooky characters, a meddlesome pet. But something is just wrong. It's been hard to define. I felt as if the author listed all the things required for a light-hearted cozy, and then asked "Just where is the limit of absurdity beyond which a book shouldn't go?" ... and then crossed it. It was TOO broad a parody of a mystery. A pet, yes ... but a monkey? Mom was not just a bit of an oddball, but odd beyond all reason. And then, it did the one thing that should be verboten in cozy-land. We discover in the end that the bad guy came out of nowhere. That's not fair. We can't play along when we aren't given sufficient info. There ought to be a clue somewhere that the most discerning reader could pick up on.

Dakota Cassidy does it again with this funny cozy mystery. Lemon is an amateur sleuth with a menagerie of eclectic friends, mother and a monkey named, Jessica Fletcher. Her mother’s, May, former finance, Marwin, died of a heart attack in Jessica's family rest room of their convenience store. But that does not quite explain the hole in his head.
Lemon’s best friend Coco and their childhood friend, Justin, a policeman, beg her to stop asking questions, detective badges in Cracker Jack boxes do not make you a real detective. But she cannot stop. Even when she has cleared her mother’s name, which was her rational for getting involved in the investigation, Lemon still cannot stop.
While Lemon is talking loud to everyone in town, we get to meet many of the residents of the tiny town of Fig Harbor and the zombies that come to the town.
Dakota gives you all the fun and characters that make reading a cozy story enjoyable.
