Book Review: Murder Outside the Lines by Krista Davis

I’m bringing you this one just in time for Halloween!

This is a very fun cozy series, with a strong cast of engaging quirky characters. I love the link to adult coloring and the fabulous covers/links to print-outs of the covers, for coloring. Ironically, I probably would have liked this one better if I hadn’t raced to read the first two in the series once I realized it was a third book. But since I did, I must confess that I far preferred the first two to this one…

The characters in the series are fun and quirky, and I love the Georgetown bookstore setting – especially having lived in DC for a decade myself years ago. But in this third book, things felt a little far-fetched, even for cozy mystery disbelief suspension – and for a Halloween-themed tale. It felt overly dramatic and tidily tied together much more so than events did in the first two books.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a fun series and I will definitely pick up the fourth book once I see it. It’s a fun cozy series and the stories are unusual and easy reads. But if you enjoyed this one, definitely make a point of checking out the first two, as the origins of the burgeoning relationships between the major characters made for very entertaining reads…

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
