I received the book Worst Laid Plans (A Maddox Storm Cozy Mystery #1) by Claire Robyn’s in exchange for an honest review. I feel that up to about 50% through the book it was a little slow for me and easy to put down. However, once I got to the halfway point it really picked up and I was able to fly through it fast! Maddox Storm is an understudy in a Broadway play. And happily married to Joe until she walks in on him and the star she understudies for. After cleaning out her husband’s savings she high tails it back home to Silver Firs where she becomes a stake holder in Hollow House. She’s not there long when she finds MS Daggon dead in the kitchen. MS Daggon was not well liked so the list of suspects seems to be long and forever changing. Maddox finds herself right in the middle of a murder investigation and tangling with the detective on the case Detective Nate Bishop. She unwillingly incriminated upstanding citizens of Silver Fir and could quite possibly be living under the same roof as a pair of unlikely murderers. So she feels that she needs to help solve the murder to essentially not have townsfolk people mad at her. It is a small town so I imagine it’s rather awkward. She finds herself in a seriously bad predicament and the whole time I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen. I really had no idea who the murderer was until the end. Great way to keep us guessing! Any way you can tell that Maddox is snarky and fun. Definitely someone I could see myself being friends with! I honestly could see myself cleaning out the bank account as well. Lovers scorned and all that. I think the book was very well written. And like I said at the beginning once I got to the midway point the story took off and I finished in one sitting! I would definitely read others in the series if given the opportunity to!
