Downward Facing Death

We rated this book:


Michelle Kelly’s Downward Facing Death is a lighthearted whodunit about a small town girl who returns home after years of traveling. Keeley Carpenter is expecting fanfare upon her homecoming, only to receive instead a dead body on her doorstep and a less than enthusiastic response to her big city goals. The idea of her vegetarian cafe that Keeley hopes will bring yoga and smoothies together is something the meat and potatoes country set aren’t ready for yet, but yoga aficionados will enjoy the breathing techniques that are well-placed throughout the book.

Instead of buckling under pressure, Keeley sets out to solve the crime herself, much to the dismay of the local detective, who seems to be a step ahead of her and more than a little irritated that she’s interfering with police business. Including a touch of romance, the novel has enough mystery and plot twists to keep a reader engaged throughout the story.

The story moves along at a nice pace, and finishing the book with a few recipes was a nice touch. Ms Kelly’s debut mystery is sure to please any fan of the genre.
