A Fresh Idea for a New Series,
This review is from: Club Monstrosity (Kindle Edition)I found this to be a refreshing idea for a cozy mystery series and the book kept me interested from start to finish. This book was not violent and although there is some romantic thoughts, everything physical is done off-screen so-to-speak.
Monsters of the city are being hunted and killed in the manner in which their classic books have been written. So far, the Monsters have lost The Blob, the Invisible Man and soon they will lose one more.
Natalie Grey is the assistant to the Medical Examiner and she is also one of Dr. Frankenstein's creatures (please do NOT call her Frankenstein, that was the man who built her!), so it has been a little difficult for her to help autopsy her friends. Soon Natalie and the Wolfman (the fetching) Alec, Dracula and the beautiful Mummy are out and about trying to find out just what the heck is going on. Who is next, is the biggest worry as these acquaintances learn that they need to become friends to fight this problem of just who has discovered the `monsters' in the city and why are they being killed off.
This was a quick, cute, amusing and clever mystery. I actually read this thinking that the killer was someone else. The characters a well developed and the world building was interesting.
This was a good start in what looks to be a new and fresh series.*ARC Supplied by publisher*
