Genre: Cozy Mystery
Cremains of the Day is a good start to a brand new cozy mystery series. Misty Simon is a talented author and this is clearly shown through her writing style and storytelling abilities. I enjoyed her characters- especially our sleuth, Tallulah Graver. She's a fun piece of work and her ability to overcome such adversary in her life post divorce is commendable. The mystery was also very good- I couldn't figure out "who-dun-it" until the very end. However, I wish Tallulah's family funeral parlor was used more in the story. From looking at the cover and the title, one would think the story would revolve around or at least be a bit more tuned into her families business but it wasn't. The main conflict of the story had almost nothing to do with it making me feel a bit let down. In all honestly, having a funeral home as a setting would be really unique in terms of the books that are out there in the genre. So this part bummed me out. Other than that, I will certainly be looking for the next one in the series because I did like this one.
I recieved an ARC of this novel via the publishers in exchange for an honest review. Thank you
