REVIEW Elvis And The Memphis Mambo Murders

Life Lovie literally is author Peggy Webb manages to rein the humor in so that there is also a good mystery mixed in with the humor Webb alternates the viewpoints in the book between that of Elvis and Callie and I was Multicultural Partnerships pleased that this wasn t simply another animal helping their owner solve a mystery Elvis may think he s being helpful but he also thinks he is well Elvis Along with Elvis uirky characters include Lovie Ruby Nell Ruby s best friend Fayrene who can mangle ahrase with the best of them and Bobby Huckabee who claims to have a sychic eye These characters lend a lot of humor to the book and there were some laugh out loud moments including an escape to a balcony that doesn t exist Webb walks a fine line with these characters and mostly succeeds although she has an annoying habit of explaining each of Fayrene s malapropisms she needs to trust her reader s intelligence As for the mystery elements while the book is well lotted with lenty of surprises I figured out halfway through the book who the killer was Elvis and the Memphis Mambo Murders is a very funny cozy mystery It was uite fun and really uick read real cozy although not too much action and lot I won this book in a FirstReads giveaway Overall I thought this book was cute The Elvis cameo was a little weird for me I liked the characters and found the story fun and interesting I do lan on reading by this author. Competition But someone is knocking off dancers so Callie goes undercover to catch a kille.
