MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Banking on a Murder: A Fiona Quinn Quick Mystery by C.S. McDonald​ is a very short story, but don’t let that fool you, it is still an awesome Cozy Mystery with the same C.S. McDonald expert writing. Fiona is at it again when her old college friend Priscilla moved back home after a bad divorce. When it seems Priscilla is missing, Fiona finds her self back to her favorite pastime.

What a delight to have a book to read in a short time, yet it keeps you turning the pages to see what the ending will be. I love the special book with a cast of characters that I grew to love. You can’t go wrong choosing this book or any from C.S. McDonald. I’m giving this one Five Stars. Check it out!!

Book Description:

Fiona Quinn arrives at her parent’s home in Daytona, Florida for a short visit only to be informed that their usually quiet retirement community has been besieged with robberies—cash, jewelry, and more. Her mom told all the neighbors Fiona is a wiz at catching bad guys.

Yikes!

Can Fiona crack the case? Hopefully, but what’s an amateur sleuth supposed to do when her Maltese, Harriet, shows up decked out in the stolen goods?

Double yikes!

Harriet’s Heist:  A Fiona Quinn Quick Mystery by Author:  C.S. McDonald

I love these Cozy Mysteries because you never know what’s in store with Fiona. This time takes a trip to Florida to see her parents. Upon arriving there, she finds the retirement community all rage of robberies. So here she goes again.

I love it when Fiona is in action and on the go. When Fiona’s mom let everyone know she was a detective, I love the reaction. I find a different flavor with this book. It has a lot of laugh out loud moments in the story. Especially when Fiona’s little Maltese shows up with the stolen jewelry around his neck. I wonder what this little dog had in mind? Don’t miss out on another Five Star short story!
