  • Um Is this a classic example of the 'cosy mystery' genre? If it is, I think I'm in trouble. Darcy Sweet is a book store owner who solves crimes with the help of her sixth sense (cue my eyes rolling) and her cat. The cat Seriously the skills of the cat are Stupid with a capital S. (The cat has to go.) He has more skills than Darcy, however. All she does to solve the mystery is go around accusing everyone in town (I will assume all cosy mysteries have a similar small town of the required 'quirky' [...]


  • I'm glad this was free It seem really rushed to me, no character development and no story development, really. I guessed about half way through who it was, and I was correct. It read more like an outline than a book. I think it has potential if it would be lengthened. I can't really say that I liked or disliked the characters because I know nothing about them!


  • Reading Death Comes to Town reminds me of being in the kiddie pool with my granddaughters. Yes, it’s cool water on a hot summer day and that’s nice but boy, there’s not much to it. If someone asks you if you were at the pool today you’re probably going to say “just barely.”Death Comes to Town is the story of Darcy who inherited her aunt’s house and bookstore and apparently her ghost in some unnamed northern state. Her sister Grace and Grace’s husband also live in Misty Hollow and [...]


  • Juvenile and LackingThis is to be the first book in a series yet it doesn't give you any explanation on what makes Darcy special or what exactly her sixth sense is. The author may know be she didn't want to share it with the reader. I always felt that I was missing something. The writing style appeared to be that of a beginner. There was no meat to the storyline or to the characters. There was no chemistry between Jon and Darcy. Darcy had more interest in her cat. And why was there a need to wri [...]


  • Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars I really [...]


  • Darcy just knew something was going to happen and that it wasn't going to be good. Every time the mist came in something happened. Darcy was able to see her reflection in the window as she contemplated the mist. She looked just like everyone else, but she had a sixth sense that was telling her right now that something bad was in the cards. I liked the characters in this story. It also wasn't overly "spooky". It did feel like something was missing, but I think that was just me and not really the [...]


  • This really is a nice little story. At 110 pages in length it is a quick read, but the story is well paced and fits its length without feeling rushed. I really loved the small town America setting, it really fit with the cosy feel of the mystery. The story twisted and turned with a few red herrings, so I didn’t guess who the murderer was until it was revealed in the book. Darcy herself is a likable character and I look forward to reading more of her.


  • Reading this book was painful. It seems as though it was written by a very young and inexperienced person. The dialog was stilted and failed to flow like real conversation. Character development was nonexistent and the storyline reflected a serious lack of critical thinking and planning. More than once I was seriously tempted to quit reading. Idle curiosity kept me turning pages because heaven knows it wasn't due to quality. The story had possibility which is why I gave it two stars.


  • Formula plot!Very disappointing when you begin the book and it's a rehash of other books you have read. Then the author gets the bright idea that the readers are idiots And they go on"writing" books with the same old tired characters. This plot was so thin, you couldn't skim it for fat! Waste of time and lack of imagination on this author's part.


  • One more to add to your reading list.I love the inclusion of the word cozy in the title. A perfect description of the book itself.Light reading, perfect for a lazy afternoon or evening.Obviously written for a female audience, also appropriate for a teenager too.




  • At times Darcy came across as wishy-washy, but she was dealing with a murder of a good friend and then her ex. Overall, it was enjoyable. I liked the cat, Smudge.



  • Cute Cosy MysteryEnjoyable read. Looking forward to her next book and seeing her characters grow and mature. Liked her story line but not to sure about how they kept hauling people into the police station and allowing Darcy to intervene. Would have been nice to either see her work out the mystery without police intervention, or . . . possibly allow her to become a mystic/psychic consultant for the police department. Hmmm.


  • Cute story, somewhat predictableDarcy and Smudge are cute characters. I love a little paranormal activity in mysteries beyond just the regular life. A few pieces of the mystery were alluded to with obvious foreshadowing.


  • The story was fun, and the characters were intriguing. Small town drama as you'd expect. The writing left more to be desired. The book repeated it self many times, as if we forgot key points in the investigation etc. as we were reading.


  • Special Cat I really liked this Cozy Mystery with a women who dreams of things yet to happen and her lovable cat.Join in to track down the person leaving dead bodies around the townI was given this book in exchange for a honest review by Ebook Reviews


  • DelightfulA good light and cozy mystery with a twist. I love the added story at the end retold by Smudge, the cat, from his viewpoint.


  • Light readingIt is great for when you want a quick, light read. Great to just waste time. Great for those just getting into reading.



  • Cute cozyBook store owner with low level psychic gifts assists local small town police solve 2 seemingly random murders. Very low level romance.


  • An enjoyable quick easy read. The cat’s view point was cute. So far book one (read books 1-4)is the only book to have the story told from Darcy’s view point and then from her cat’s.



  • I'm so happy I found this book. I have been looking for a good cozy mystery series. Right away, we get a feel for the town and get to know more about Darcy. The town and its residents are well developed through this book and allowed the reader to connect.The entire situation between Darcy and Jon was a little weird, but that was forgiven as it's a cozy mystery. We do have the mandatory ex, but he was taken care of relatively quickly. The mystery was interesting and watching Darcey figure it out [...]



  • The book was just so-so. My favorite part/character was Smudge (the cat).a little sad, yes. The book was a good fit for a challenge and was a quick read. Not my kind of mystery - I like a little actual mystery thrown in. :-)


  • Was originally posted on Paranormal Sisters: paranormalsistersAt first this was a fun quick read but then Death Comes to Town started to dwindle for me.At the end and a little before that, the characters started to feel a bit two dimensional. In the beginning you learn a lot about Darcy and her quirky life. I enjoyed it, she owns a book store and has a cat that knows things before anyone else does. She's part of a book club and her sister is a cop. Oh yeah, and she can see ghost! All the element [...]


  • A new policeman in town that partners with Darcy's sister. Jon, is very good looking and makes Darcy all aquiver whenever he is near. With help from Smudge the cat and the spiritual connection that Darcy has with her dead Great Aunt Millie, Darcy helps to solve the crimes.


  • This a short, by-the-book, cozy mystery set in a small, sleepy town called Misty Hollow. When the mists roll in, psychic book shop owner Darcy Sweet knows trouble is brewing. Without giving away the plot details, Death Comes to Town is an easy read that was perfect for the commute. It's not a long book but as a first in the series it's a fair start. My biggest problem with the book is that it appeared to happen in a void. The descriptions of anything are limited. I know the cat is black and whit [...]
