In Diana Killian's High Rhymes and Misdemeanors, the first book in the Poetic Verse cozy mystery series, she introduced us to a poetic cozy with tons of mystery and humor. When Grace Hollister visited her favorite poets' haunts in London, she stumbled across the body of Peter Fox in the stream. After she saved his life, two thugs pursued her for the geegaws Peter hid on him. But they both soon discovered they had something in common with Lord Byron, when Peter's dark past was revealed, his life of vice and Grace's love of verse might lead them straight to the caper who might have something to hide before he was found out.
This was a delightful and charming cozy series that featured London and English poetry. I cared about Grace and Peter, and wondered if something more would come between them. I loved the English background of the location and settings to make it perfect for the cozy series. I loved the poetic references to it and the love of poetry as well. This gave me a chuckle or two. Great drama, good intense non-stop action and plenty of intrigue along the way.
Check out this cozy today!
