Peachy Scream: A Georgia B&B Mystery
In true Shakespearean fashion, tragedy finds its way to Nina Fleet and her B&B. Nina’s small town is putting on a Shakespeare festival, and the acting troupe has a two-week stay already booked with her. Normally this would be just what she needs for her B&B, though she hesitates to accept the booking when the leader of the troupe is exactly the person she doesn’t want to see: Harry Westcott. They didn’t get off on the right foot when he challenged her claim to her home, but after deciding to let them stay, she never could have predicted how horribly wrong it could go, or how deadly. After one of the troupe members is found dead, she teams up with Harry to dig into the pasts of the other members and catch a killer.
Anna Gerard delivers a delightful follow-up to Peach Clobbered, with Nina taking in her nemesis and his acting troupe for a Shakespeare festival. The back and forth between Nina and Harry is riddled with friction and bickering that stems from their first encounter, which had them immediately butting heads over her house. Despite the bickering, the relationship between them is humorous and adds to the light tone of the story. The mystery revolves around the troupe and has several funny moments involving Nina sneaking around on the sly to uncover the secrets the troupe has hidden. In a delightful twist of events, Nina is thrown together with Harry to solve the murder by sneaking around together and still finding the time to argue. The overall themes have a distinctly Shakespearean flavor, with a mystery that centers upon secrets, identity, poison, and family drama.
Peachy Scream is a delightful read that is perfect for lovers of Shakespeare. It delivers a lighthearted cozy read, a suspenseful murder mystery that keeps you guessing, and a bickering duo who will have you immediately charmed.
