Watching the Detectives Book Review & Giveaway

Take a trip back to the 1970s with Ellison and the gang in Watching the Detectives. The latest book in the Country Club Murders Mystery Series by Julie Mulhern.

This series has become one of those where I look forward to the next installment coming out. I can’t wait to share with you my top reasons why you should pick up this book.

It’s a 1970s Gilmore Girls!

Were you a fan of the Gilmore Girls television series? If you liked Gilmore Girls, you’ll love Watching the Detectives. It has the same sarcastic humor and wit, with a loving, but dysfunctional multi-generational family of strong women. You’ll have all the feels following the adventures of life, love, and murder with the Russell women.

We see some depth added to Ellison and Anarchy’s Relationship

Ellison’s “friendship” with police detective Anarchy Jones deepens in this book. It goes from mutual attraction and trading ribs, to the two actually spending time together and getting to know more about each other. It is fun to have the curtain pulled back slightly as we learn more about the mysterious man that is Anarchy Jones.

Tackling of tough issues in a relatable way.

The world was a different place in the 1970s, when this book is set. Julie Mulhern does an excellent job of bringing difficult issues to light and making you think, while still staying true to the genre of the cozy mystery.

PS: Do you follow Julie on social media? She is always posting 1970s antics to her Author Facebook Page and it’s hilarious. Seriously. It is the kind of page that makes you like Facebook again.

Watching the Detectives is a must read for anyone who loves a little “meat” to their cozy mystery and a good does of humor and wit to boot. Do I have you convinced? Well how about a chance to win a free eCopy of the book?!
