Addressed To Kill by Jean Flowers

Over the weekend I finished Jean Flowers Addressed to Kill, the third book in her Postmistress Series. I have now read all three books and I think this is one of the coolest series in the cozy world. Maybe it is because I identify with the author's main character and her love of the mail. As far back as I can remember getting something in the mail was such a treat. My grandfather used to write and send stories to us and my mom would read them out to us until we were old enough to read them ourselves. Postcards from their trips, holiday and birthday cards had us cheering for the postman. When I was old enough pen pals had me hanging out by our mail box and even now, it is one of the most fun parts of the day. I still love my snail mail and I feel it is such an important way to connect even now in the age of impersonal emails and more efficient means of communication.  In Addressed to Kill main character Postmistress Cassie helps to figure out who is behind the murder of a local math professor. Cassie is naturally curious, and very much inserts herself in the investigation, with a little nudging from her customers and her best friend and police chief Sunni. There is so much to love about this series and it is my hope that it will continue.
This book is out now and a series you should own!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your love of mail, Karen! As much as I'm grateful for email for fast communication, I love sending and getting snail mail. Several friends and I have an ongoing postcard exchange, even though we live within an hour of each other!
