    Cute novella. Kelly, a young artist /waitress has returned to Marchville to care for her grandmother after she fell. As her grandmother recuperates, they share early morning dog walks. After one of her shifts at the cafe, she stumbles over dead dead body. Wanting to solve the murder, she devises a plan to ferret out the perpetrator. Story was almost too short for me, I enjoyed the characters and would have liked to see them even more developed.

    Kelly is a waitress who has returned to her hometown to take care of her grandmother (and her Grandmother's dog - hi, Buddy!) Though Grandma Iris is now healed, Kelly is helping her to complete recovery. In her spare time, Kelly's an artist and now also a dead-body finder. This is a really short story and I wasn't expecting anything meaty to happen considering it's a novella to set up a series. That being said, there was a fair bit of meat. The two leading characters are fully fleshed out and the Kelly is a waitress who has returned to her hometown to take care of her grandmother (and her Grandmother's dog - hi, Buddy!)

This is a really short story and I wasn't expecting anything meaty to happen considering it's a novella to set up a series. That being said, there was a fair bit of meat. The two leading characters are fully fleshed out and their relationship is well defined. The first clue falls into their laps, but they do investigate despite being discouraged to do so. All in all, it sparked my curiosity for the next book in the series.

    Fabulous. Couldn’t stop reading. A painter and a dog lover, an amazing combination. What else can one do. Intriguing as always.

    Who killed Kerwin Phillips and why??? Did you know that you can do a lot of different things with paint other than paint??? I enjoyed the story and recommend the book.

    Good story and easy read This was a quick and easy read. Light mystery book with few characters which was perfect for the storyline. Everything centered around a couple of streets in a small town. The characters were likable and their background story was simple. I am looking forward to reading another story book 2 from this series.

A cafe is a great place to pick up gossip as you move from table to table, but things take a turn for the worse when Kelly trips over a dead body while taking out the trash. The dead man turns out to be the owner of a nearby art gallery, and it takes all Kelly’s skills and contacts to get to the bottom of who killed him, and why. I’ll say at this point that I love cozy mysteries, and have read a lot of them over the years. While I was reading it I enjoyed this one, but somehow it failed to stick in my mind, and when I came to write this review I had to go back to the book to try and remember. There just wasn’t anything which grabbed me.

    Loved the main characters in this book, a grandmother full of life and mischevious, her dog who is a great detective and her thoughtful grandaughter. The combination of these three characters make this story an enjoyable light reading although there is a crime to be solved. There might even be love in this mixture as grandma is also a matchmaker ! If you are looking to read a book that will make you smile this is the one!

    A short enjoyable cozy Kelly moved back home, to be with her Grandma Iris. Grandma was fun! A bit insensitive maybe, and a big gossip, but fun! And the dog? He listens to Grandma, but not to Kelly! This was an enjoyable, lighthearted, quick read, good for in-between books. I normally like more character development, but I knew it was a short and would be fast, so I didn’t expect it. I liked it! And the mystery was good!

    Kelly is an artist, a painter actually. She is living with her grandmother after her grandmother suffered from a fall. Kelly is also a waitress at the local cafe. The characters are suburb and the way they get along is great. I love how her grandmother isn't going to let a 'little fall' get her down and she is a firecracker! She also has a bulldog, Buddy, who helps Kelly with her detective work. A great story! I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book. Looking forward to the next one!

    Young artist goes back home to live with her grandmother and bulldog to help her grandmother. To make money, she works as a waitress for a boss she doesn't think much of when she stumbles over a body while putting out the garbage. She solves the mystery and life goes on. Now granted, I could have solved the mystery as well given that all the suspects she casually interrogates just happen to answer her probing questions and not tell her to sod off.

I was close to figuring out the guilty party, but I got it wrong. Can't wait the read the next installment! I received an ARC. This is my honest review. Fun start to a new series!

    I’m always amazed when an author packs an full mystery into a small package. Though short, this mystery is absolutely worthwhile and a great start to a new series. The characters are lively and the book is well written. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this book and chose to make a voluntary, unbiased review.

    This is a quick fun read with quirky characters. I enjoyed it. So why three stars? The book was too short and the ending a little too abrupt for my taste. I would like to see it as a full length book, fleshed out more and allowing for more depth to the mystery. Saying that, the author is a good writer and I will be looking for more books from her.

    Fun new series. The characters, especially Grandma Iris and Kelly are great. They are realistic and fun to read about. Of course, Buddy the bulldog steals the scene more often than not. This is a nice story to take your mind off of your everyday worries. You can sit back and relax while enjoying the book.

    This one was okay. A very very quick read. March Street Murder is significantly more simplistic than most of the cozy mysteries I've read in recent years. It's certainly a "don't have to think about anything" read, probably great for a poolside afternoon or a rainy day in front of the fireplace. Nothing that grabbed me, but nothing that turned me off either. This one was okay. A very very quick read.
