Mac's only experience with murder investigations is limited to the cozy mysteries she reads with her local book group, the Cozy Capers. So to clear her name--and maybe her brother's too--Mac will have to summon help from her Cozy Capers co-investigators and a library's worth of detectives' tips and tricks. For a small town, Westham is teeming with possible killers, and this is one mystery where Mac is hoping for anything but a surprise ending...

Actual Rating: 4 stars
Murder on Cape Cod was released exclusively at Barnes&Noble a few months ago. It is not currently available on amazon but will be released there on December 31st. I happened upon this book at the bookstore in my area and had no idea it wouldn't be released through amazon until the end of the year! Not that I care all too much because I really enjoyed this one.
This is the first book in a new series by Maddie Day. It features a heroine who is a cozy mystery lover herself (she actually takes part in a cozy mystery book club), and therefore will resonate with fans of the genre. Maddie Day peppered some popular mysteries throughout the book which I found really cool while reading (I may have added a few to my own list!). As the title states, this book takes place on Cape Cod. Being a Massachusetts resident, I absolutely loved this. I have spent many summers down on the cape and I felt like I was right back there with these sweet characters.
In this one, the heroine is doing a little sleuthing (with the help of other book club members) when a resident handyman is found dead on the path towards her house. Seeing as the murder weapon appeared to be her BROTHERS knife, he's the prime suspect. She of course knows he didn't do it and will stop at nothing to clear his name!
Maddie Day does a wonderful job with this new series and I have to say that I am really excited to see where she takes it next! If you are a cozy mystery reader you won't want to miss this one!
