A few days later the thief returns.

Chick Lit Café Book Review:
The Mystery of M – a Detective Florentine Mystery is the first in a brand-new series of cozy-mysteries, and I hope it won’t be long before book two is released as I thoroughly enjoyed this tale and can’t wait for the next installment. With murder being referred to but not described in detail, this is a clean story that could easily be enjoyed by teenagers as well as adults. I am sure Susanna Krizo has a promising career as an outstanding author in front of her!
It begins with a teaser where we see the mysterious ‘M’ burying a body. Who is M? And, more importantly, who has he just buried? Chapter one starts in 1980 with our main character, detective Soyla Florentin, who has moved from the big city to come and live and work Weyland. With a past she doesn’t wish to discuss, she throws herself into her work, and gets slightly frustrated when there isn’t really enough to keep her busy.
The charming detective Noam Sommer tries befriending her to help her settle in. Weary of his attentions Florentin is often abrupt and Sommer assumes there is no spark. Luckily for Florentin, Sommer isn’t one to give up easily. With only a few cold cases on her desk, Florentin is relieved when a theft occurs at Spruce Manor and a painting is stolen. Now enters into the story two well-to-do young ladies, sisters called Kitty and Beth, who are delighted to break their boredom by becoming amateur sleuths when they discover a lost letter in the library, mysteriously signed ‘M’. It was nice to read a mystery that had several well developed main characters, making it interesting, intriguing, and adding depth.
Susanna Krizo has a lovely writing style, that is easy-to-read and dialogue that feels real. The plot is captivating and clever but not overly complicated, ensuring this is a remarkable mystery novel that is easy to curl up on the sofa and relax with. The Mystery of M (Detective Florentine Mysteries) by Susanna Krizo is highly recommended by Chick Lit Café ~Reviewed by T N Traynor for Chick Lit Café
