Book Review: Fright at The Museum

16 Jul

Fright at the MuseumMuseum curator Bonnie Simpson is attacked then nearly run over, then she finds a dead guy in Melnik’s Historical Museum, which is the closest she’s come to having a visitor to the museum all week. Joe, the guy who attacked her might have been diving on her to save her from the car. And the car might have just been an octogenarian with an accelerator/brake problem. But that still leaves a corpse to explain.

74df8a5e943d0ad8986cb1-l-_v142787161_sx200_Mary Connealy writes romantic comedy . . . with cowboys.

She is a Carol Award winner, and a Rita and Christy and Inspirational Reader’s Choice finalist.
She is the author of bestselling Kincaid Brides SeriesOut of ControlIn Too Deep,Over the Edge. Her work also includes Lassoed in Texas TrilogyMontana Marriages Trilogy and Sophie’s Daughters Trilogy.
She also wrote Ten Plagues–a romantic thriller, and The Historical Society Murders–three cozy mysteries, under the name Mary Nealy.
Mary is married to a Nebraska rancher and has four grown daughters and two spectacular grandchildren.

My Impressions:

I like a cozy mystery — fun and quirky characters, small town setting and a mystery to solve along with the amateur sleuths in the novel. Mary Nealy has written a fun series featuring the town of Melnick, Nebraska; a town obsessed with its mascot, a stuffed mouse named Maxie. The townspeople go to great lengths to protect Maxie and in turn the town they love. In the second book of the series, Bonnie Simpson aka Marian the Librarian is featured. This shy woman gets bold when her town and Maxie are threatened and when love finally comes to call. Joe, a newcomer in town, needs her help and the sparks fly (literally) when they finally get together.

If you enjoy cozy mysteries, I recommend Fright at The Museum. It is laugh out loud funny, read quickly and features some great characters. (You can read my review of book 1, Bury The Lead, HERE.)
