‘Casket Cache’ is the first of the Specer Funeral Home Niagara cozy mystery series. While I enjoy a good mystery, this book particularly appealed to me because the Niagara area of Ontario is quite familiar to me and, as stated by the author, “one never gets tired of the falls”.
This is a well developed mystery, with a few surprising twists and turns to keep the reader guessing along the way. The main character is very likeable, as are the rest of the main cast. Setting mystery stories in a funeral home is very clever as the author obviously knows her material, but also because it’s quite unique in the cozy mystery genre amongst the many that are set in restaurants, hotels, and various small town establishments.
I really enjoyed reading ‘Casket Cache’ and will gladly read more books by this author. I’ve given this interesting and enjoyable mystery story a Silver Acorn.
