As with every Duffy Brown book she has a way of weaving humor into her mystery and this one doesn’t disappoint I found myself laughing out loud more than once…

This one had a lot of twists and turns in it that kept me guessing till the very end, and let me tell you, the ending was a huge surprise.

A laugh riot from beginning to end. This is a cozy series you won’t want to miss.

Braking for Bodies:
A Cycle Path Mystery

Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Publisher: Berkley (April 5, 2016)
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
ISBN-13: 978-0425268957


Evie Bloomfield puts the pedal to the metal—in the latest Cycle Path mystery from the national bestselling author of Geared for the Grave.

Moving from Los Angeles to small, picturesque Mackinac Island to work in a bike shop might seem crazy, but Evie knows it’s the best decision she’s ever made. That’s not to say she’s gotten rid of all her stress; after all, the upcoming Lilac Festival has everyone in town riding in circles.

But things really go downhill when a ferry full of tourists—including Evie’s friend Fiona’s former boss, the editor of a sleazy rag in LA—arrives on the island. No one knows why Peephole Perry came all the way to Mackinac, but things aren’t looking good for Fiona when Peep is found dead. Now Evie has to gear up and get a grip on the truth if she wants to clear her friend’s name…

FTC Disclosure:  I received  a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

My thoughts: This second book in the Cycle Path Mystery series was a delightful read. I have not yet read the first book (Geared for the  Grave), but I was able to follow along easily. What I really enjoyed about this book was the upbeat and humorous tempo. Evie and Fiona remind me of Lucy and Ethel, but I’m not really sure which is which.  They make a great team.  The story is very engaging with plenty of twists and turns. I’ve been reading a lot of “heavy” books lately and this was a great change of pace. If you like light hearted mysteries, then I highly recommend that you grab a copy of this book.  

Thanks to the author, I have a great tote bag to give away to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment for the author (and a way to be contacted) by midnight of April 14th for a chance to win.
