Spotlight & Giveaway ~ FREEZER I'LL SHOOT by Victoria Hamilton

Trying to escape her overbearing mother, vintage kitchenware enthusiast and soon-to-be columnist Jaymie Leighton retreats to her family’s cottage on Heartbreak Island. While there she hopes to write an article about the Ice House restaurant, owned by good friends and neighbors, siblings Ruby and Garnet Redmond. Once an actual icehouse, the restaurant is charmingly decorated with antique tools of the trade, including a collection of ice picks.
One night, while working on her article, Jaymie overhears an argument and, ever the sleuth, sets out to explore. But when she stumbles upon a dead body her blood runs cold. It’s Urban Dobrinskie, whose feud with the Redmonds is no secret, and he’s got an ice pick through his heart.

  1. Cozy mysteries are the chick lit of the mystery world. Usually the heroine is a normal woman who gets into a lot of trouble and her life isn't perfect. It's depressing sometimes to read those books about the beautiful, thin, blond who's wealthy and happy. Groan!!

    1. I'm sorry. I completely took your comments to be negative. If you feel negatively towards cozy mysteries, then don't read them. Jaymie's life may not be perfect to some, but all and all, she's happy. She's younger then the heroines in other cozies that I've read, so she's still trying to figure her life out. Unless you've read Victoria and her Jaymie character, you really shouldn't judge them on reading someone else.

  2. Because it's like doing a jigsaw puzzle and trying to figure out how all the pieces fit together!

    1. Then this is the book for you. I hope you enjoy it Meghan. Thank you for stopping by.
