Book Details:

Book TitleThe Wrong Side of Murder (A Nikki Bryant Cozy Mystery) by Lauren Carr
Category:  Adult Fiction (18 +),  274 pages
Genre:  Mystery/Cozy Mystery
Publisher:  Acorn Book Services
Release date:   July 21, 2022
Content Rating: This cozy mystery is rated G for everyone!

The Wrong Side of Murder is another wonderful cozy mystery by author Lauren Carr. It has all the elements that draw me in - an intelligent female lead, an equally smart boyfriend who partners to help her, a complicated plot where clues are slowly revealed, people who aren't what they seem to be, comedic moments to balance the darker ones, and several quirky pets full of personality.  

It's a wonderful book to escape into at the end of the day. And get ready to read into the wee hours as, if you're like me, you won't be able to stop reading until the mystery is revealed.  
- Marilyn R. Wilson, Olio by Marilyn

Nikki's an intense individual who makes the perfect investigative journalist. She wants answers yesterday and she is willing to dig in to get them. She might get it wrong at the beginning but with the help of her family and close friends, she'll get the answers she wants and needs. – review by Blooming with Books

Book Description:

Nikki Bryant’s Next Case Takes Her to the Wrong Side of Murder

One spring morning, Jodi Gibbons got up and went to school as she did every day. Her young life went sideways though when the police found that her mother had been brutally killed during the night.

Twenty years later, many in Pine Grove believe Jodi got away with murder. After all, how could she have possibly slept through her mother’s violent death in the very next room?
After decades of silence, Jodi accepts investigative journalist Nikki Bryant’s invitation to tell her side of the story. However, before the interview can take place, someone silences Jodi permanently.

Now it is up to Nikki Bryant and her friends to uncover the secret that Jodi Gibbons has been protecting—a secret someone believes it is worth killing to keep from being revealed.

Nikki Bryant is quickly becoming one of my favorite leading ladies! In the second installment of this series, we are introduced to Jodi Gibbons, who’s mother was murdered 20 years ago. Many in Pine Grove believe she got away with murder. But did she? After decades of silence, Jodie accepts Nikki’s offer to tell her side of the story, however, before the interview can take place, Jodi is silenced permanently. 

As with the first book, this is a fun read with a cast of loveable characters. I was hooked from start to finish and adore Lauren's writing style and the humor. Her ability to develop a cast of character with this level of depth is brilliant. I found the mystery to be interesting and engaging. I also like the plot development and that the pace flowed nicely. I lam hooked on this series and look forward seeing how this series evolves. I highly recommend this series to all cozy mystery lovers.  

I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Lauren Carr and iRead Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.
