Having just finished the fifth installment of the endlessing entertaining Flavia De Luce series by Alan Bradley, I thought this would be a good time to promote an oftentimes underappreciated genre, the Cozy Mystery. "Cozies" are a subgenre of crime fiction, usually set in small communities and feature amateur sleuths who have great senses of humor. What's not to love, right?
Becca is on her way to college in just a few short months, finally escaping the claustrophobia of her small town life in conneticut. But only hours after she graduates and her heart is broken by the boy she loves, a body of an young women is found on a dusty road, disrupting the carefully constructed plans she had. With very little evidence and the body yet to be identified, gossip runs wild and Becca becomes strangely obsessed with finding out why this stranger was killed so brutally.
If you are looking for a page-turning literary novel that you can read in one day, All Yours, a slim crime novel about a woman’s revenge on her cheating husband, is the book for you. The author, a native Argentinean, tells a gripping tale of domestic conflict and, at the same time, sheds light on Argentina’s class structure and the selfish behaviors of the entitled class. This author’s crime novels are all bestsellers in Latin America...and for good reason! All Yours is a great read.
