Fiction: Murder and Moonshine: A Mystery by Carol Miller

Murder and Moonshine is by no means a bad book or a bad mystery.  But it is also not an exceptional one in any way.

As likeable and three dimensional as its protagonist is and as elegant as the setup of the mystery are, its resolution is laughably paint-by-numbers and the setting is, well, not quite irrelevant, but not the sort of rich, real representation of a slice of place that I look for from a book deserving of being called regional fiction (Ron Rash, she ain’t).  But overall it is a pleasant read.

3 Stars.

 

Disclosure: I received a free copy of Murder and Moonshine via NetGalley.
