Genre: Cozy Mystery
Actual Rating: 3.5 stars
Grounds for Remorse is the second book in the Tallie Graver mystery series. Overall, I really liked this one. I read it in one sitting and found myself to be entranced in the story. I think the author is getting better and better as the series progresses as well because I did like it better then the first one. Will I be continuing the series based off this one? Yes, I will. I am really excited for the next one which will be releasing in November.
For those who are interested in the series but haven't read the first book, its about an amateur sleuth who works as both a cleaning lady and a funeral parlor assistant. This is initially what caught my attention when it comes to the books as I haven't read anything like it before. In this installment, Tallie is trying to clear her best friends name when she is accused of murdering the slime ball she was dating- he was also married an dating quite a few other women at the time. Romance continues from the previous story as well, so if you like a bit of it added into your cozies then you won't be disappointed here.
With that, this is another good installment of the series and I look forward to getting to know Tallie better in the coming books. I would definitely recommend it to those who have read the first book in the series and for those who are looking for a quick and easy cozy to read. Just remember, this is the second book and the first one must be read first.
