Book Review: Halloween Party Murder (Juniper Holiday, #1) by Leighann Dobbs

book review halloween party murder juniper holiday leighann dobbs

Halloween Party Murder (Juniper Holiday, #1) by Leighann Dobbs is the first book in an all new cozy mystery book series.  Wealthy Juniper Holiday lives in Crescent Cove with her goddaughter and is planning a spectacular Halloween party when a dead body is discovered in the guest house.  How did the body end up there, and who is the murderer?

This newest book by Leighann Dobbs was a super fun, quick read.  I absolutely love the main character . . . Juniper Holiday.  She's so spunky and unlike any other characters I've read about.  The paranormal elements in the book were amazing too . . . ghosts and werewolves make appearances adding a spooky element to the storyline.

Although there were red herrings throughout the book, I quickly determined who the killer was but couldn't figure out the motive.  However, I should have figured out the motive because there were clues that hinted at it.  Full disclosure, I did second guess myself at one point when it came to the murderer.

Four out of five stars is what I give Halloween Party Murder (Juniper Holiday, #1) by Leighann Dobbs.  I've already started the second book in the series and can't wait to find out what other surprises await me in this series.
