I was very happy to receive an advance copy of this e-book from the author, as I really enjoyed the first Pineapple Port book. Cozy mysteries are about the only readable kind of detective fiction that I bother with now, since most of the “big name” stuff is always so dark and predictable. Ms. Vansant is a welcome breath of fresh air in the arena.
I’ve been disappointed by other independent author cozy mysteries as of late, with recycled mysteries and cardboard characters. Pineapple Mystery Box however is one of those rare ones that are consistent, with enjoyable characterization and dialogue, and also manage a first rate whodunit at the same time.
If you like the Cat Who books by Lillian Jackson Braun, or the Lighthouse Mystery stories of Tim Myers, I think you will definitely enjoy Amy Vansant’s quirky little retreat at Pineapple Port!
