My Thoughts:

The Dead Sister Talking Mysteries series by Lizbeth Lipperman merges contemporary, small town mystery with a touch of romance and a twist of the paranormal. Jailhouse Glock, the second installment, features rookie cop and single mom Maddy Castillo (nee Garcia), elaborately framed for the murder of a drunken lech in the station lock up. With the evidence mounting against her, Maddy turns to her sisters for help to unravel the conspiracy between an impersonator, a murdered witness and a stolen necklace, to clear her name.

Maddy is oldest of five sisters, one of whom, Lainey, was featured in book one, Heard It Through the Grapevine and another, Tessa, who despite being dead, is never far away when her siblings are in trouble. Each ‘Garcia girl’ differs from one another but share a tight, sisterly bond, and a penchant for getting into trouble. Their dynamic is believable and entertaining and I particularly enjoyed their banter, especially Tessa’s unfiltered wit.

I thought the plot of Jailhouse Glock was interesting and well thought out with a complexity often missing from cosy mysteries. It takes some careful planning, and a little luck, to so thoroughly frame Maddy as a corrupt cop. Despite the warnings from Vineyard’s police chief, who is also Maddy’s brother in law, the girls have few qualms about interfering in the investigation, and side with Maddy as she sets out to find the real killer, following a trail that reveals greed, betrayal and more bodies, one of which is very nearly her own.

This was such a fun read with appealing characters, a cleverly crafted mystery and I’m looking forward to reading the next one.

    Wow something abut this really makes me want to pick it up and start it right now! I am on a little paranormal kick, been reading Shadows of Doubt by Mell Corcoran. She really has a way of putting in that paranormal edge and that’s so good to me! I am sure Lipperman’s book will be great!
