Minister Eustace Elder didn’t believe in extravagant things like … life insurance. Bunny Elder finds herself widowed and asked to move out of the rectory to make room for the new minister and his family. Alone and living on a meager savings, Bunny has to reevaluate her new life. Her family has other ideas … like dating!
“Don’t tell me you’ve got a hot date for lunch. Jean, please remember that I am a recent widow. I know you never liked Eustace, but try to remember that he was my husband. I’m certainly not dating, so soon.”
Setting forth to find a job, she finds herself as an assistant to a newspaper editor … one that she has a prior history with: “He was incredulous. He had not spoken with his first love since they had divorced almost thirty years ago.”
If that’s not enough, she finds herself tangling with a deranged killer. The killer’s calling card – dead bodies littered about and some skillfully hidden in Halloween decorations!
Now the Killer is after Bunny. “I’m an Avenging Angel … did you know that?”
Will Bunny survive the Avenging Angel? Will she reunite with her first love?
J.B. Hawker does an excellent job of setting up the story and then following through on the plot in a skillful and entertaining manner. An adventure and cozy mystery rolled into one. True to the definition of a cozy mystery, Hawker cleverly reveals the mystery in a humorous fashion and in a small, very socially intimate community with some adventure.
Her writing is concise, rich in description and light reading. Hawker captures her readers’ attention and holds it from beginning to end. Her character development is solid and believable. Her attention to detail is exceptional. This is a must read if you enjoy cozy mysteries and adventures!
WordsAPlenty gives JB Hawker’s Hollow, a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree, five stars.
