This weeks theme is Patriotic Themed books and I am very patriotic, however I am not American.
If you are new to my blog I am Canadian, living on the West Coast and proud of my heritage and country. I have a great fondness and love for my sisters in the USA and all the wonderful readers I have south of the 49th parallel line. On Saturday we just celebrated our 150th Birthday here as as the Country of Canada, so we are still pretty young.
In our house we celebrate Canada Day July 1st, it is a celebration much like the 4th of July, we have parades, picnics, BBQ and more. In our family we celebrate the 4th of July as well, we have lots of our family are American and living in the States... but let's get to my book for this week!
Casket Cache is a book I read late last year and I really enjoyed. It is set in Canada, near Niagra Falls and I was surprised at how much I loved this book and series. Who knew I would find a book about a Funeral Director to be so comforting and so wonderful?
Funeral homes are supposed to be quiet... Jennifer Spencer inherits her uncle’s funeral home. Her move to the Niagara Region into the apartment above the Home went well, but in the first week alone, someone breaks into the funeral home. Then, Jennifer finds cash in a casket, a lot of cash. Certain it has something to do with the break-in, she’s unable to convince the police and winds up on their list of suspects. But Jennifer has families to serve and funerals to arrange; that is her number-one priority. Someone sinister and dangerous wants the cash back; that’s their number-one priority and Jennifer Spencer, funeral director, is in the way. A cozy mystery with heart, compassion, and humour. “CASKET CACHE presents us with the perfect balance of light and dark: a delightful small town with a local murder. It does this and also takes a step further by setting the action in and around Spencer Funeral Home, blending compassionate descriptions of care families receive in their time of need with the inside scoop on coroner’s calls, casket selection rooms and funeral processions.
Janice J. Richardson does an amazing job with this mystery and with this series. I challenge you to read this book! Click here to find it on Amazon.com
I would love for you to read it so we can discuss it!
I loved book two as well and am anxiously awaiting book three!
There are some really fantastic cozy mysteries written by some talented big named Canadian Authors who are actually Canadian but only a handful of cozies actually set here!
I do hope you will give this Canadian based cozy series a try!
