A Killer Welcome is the first book in Haunting Avery Winters Paranormal Cozy Mystery Series (that is a mouthful). We are introduced to a number of people including Avery Winters. Avery is in denial about what she can see since she was struck by lightning which I found frustrating. With the story in the first person, readers are subjected to all of Avery’s thoughts (which are frequently on the negative side). There is a great deal of repetition as well. The mystery is not at the forefront of the story for the first half of the book. I wanted more investigation and less of Avery’s day to day activities (especially with regard to food). The whodunit can be solved before the reveal. I had trouble getting through A Killer Welcome. I wanted to like the story, but it really is not my type of tale. While A Killer Welcome is not my cup of tea, other readers are enjoying it (that is the beauty of books). I suggest obtaining a sample to see if A Killer Welcome is the right fit for you. A Killer Welcome is a lighthearted paranormal cozy mystery with gads of ghosts, jealous journalists, a surly landlady, a rude receptionist, a useful constable, and a confusing crime.
A Killer Welcome is available from Amazon*. The next Haunting Avery Winters Paranormal Cozy Mystery (that is a mouthful) is A Regrettable Roast which publishes November 20. You can find Dionne Lister's other novels here. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to visit. I will be back on Monday with Inside the Simple Life by Susan Hougelman. I hope that you have a relaxing weekend. I plan on putting together my mother's new bathroom cabinet. She needs more storage (that woman has more storage in her bathroom than I do in the master bath). I need to remove wallpaper int her bathroom next (yuck). Take care of yourself, be kind, and Happy Reading!
