Book 24 in the Magnolia Bluff Crime Chronicles

***** Rooting for Diablo —— Review by Rox Burkey

Readers will be drawn into the camaraderie of Cindy Davis’s gripping story, featuring intuitive detective Bliss Jager, a toucan, and murder. In “Courtin’ Disaster,” Bliss Jager and her friends Hannah and Whitney form a tight-knit group, always supporting each other. Together with Chief Jager, they embark on a journey to solve the mysteries, even with the help of the toucan Diablo, who provides essential but obscure clues.

Two men got into a fight before the big fishing tournament at the Burnet Reservoir even began. The only woman in the fishing tournament, Lucy, was discovered dead. Then Bennett was found dead a short time later. Now, Bliss and her roommates want to help find the cause of death, especially when the cause of death is the same for both Lucy and Bennett. They also want to find out how these two people are connected. Chief Jager knows how intuitive and resourceful they can be, so he gives them information.

Ms. Davis’s meticulous attention to detail brings every scene to life, painting a vivid picture that immerses readers in the story. The dialogue is not just banter but a delightful, realistic exchange that propels the story forward. With her unique narrative style, Bliss unravels the mystery by methodically pulling on each thread, much like searching for the ends of noodles in a plate of spaghetti, all in a bid to tie the pieces together.

Follow along as Bliss and her friends attempt to solve the most recent Magnolia Bluff murders. Fans of cozy mysteries with a paranormal twist will love Courtin’ Disaster, the twenty-fourth book in the Magnolia Bluff Crime Chronicles series. While each book in the series stands alone, reading them all is highly recommended. You’ll become enchanted with the town, its characters, and each author.

      Hey Rox! Thanks so much for the great review. I’m thrilled the characters–and the toucan–speak to you. I’m just back from Mexico where I got great pics of a real-life Diablo. Sad though, he didn’t bring clues to any mysteries.
