Nipped in the bud by Susan Sleeman entertained me to the end. This whodunit romance is riddled with roll-your-eyes humor and engaging characters.
While digging at the local park Paige discovers a body buried in the site she’d been hired to landscape. Unfortunately she’s considered the prime suspect and the police aren’t looking for the real killer. Paige’s friends call in Adam, an out-of-town attorney, to manage her legal case, meanwhile Paige sets out to find the real killer.
I enjoyed the interaction of the characters and humorous moments between Paige and her attorney Adam. However I had the murder figured out long before the end. I don’t want to spoil anything for you so I’ll leave it at that, but I suspect you will probably experience my frustration regarding this one aspect. Don’t let that scare you away from this book though, because the story is more than figuring out the murder and I don’t regret the time I spent reading it.
Normally I wouldn’t post a review on a book with any kind of negative comment included, but I sincerely enjoyed this book except for that one aspect. Nipped in the bud is filled with quirky humor and worth your time if you’re in the mood for a fun read.
The best thing of all is that if you are an Amazon Prime member you can borrow Nipped in the bud for free.
