About the Book:
New to the historic town of Metamora, Indiana, Cameron Cripps-Hayman is looking to make friends with her neighbors. What she isn’t looking for is one of their bodies floating in the canal. 

When she and her estranged husband, the town sheriff, are both named suspects for the murder, Cameron takes solving the crime into her own hands, teaming up with her eccentric co-workers who dub themselves The Metamora Action Agency. 

As if hunting for a murderer with two high school geniuses, the town drunk, and an elderly kleptomaniac isn’t hard enough, Cameron adopts the five mangy guard dogs of her deceased neighbor. But maybe a stint at playing gatekeeper is just what she needs to come face-to-face with the killer and save another neighbor from being the next victim.

My Review:
This book had a different feel than most cozy mystery books I read. I did like it though. Cameron is thrown into a big mess of everything, but she handles herself very well. She’s a very strong character and learned from her entire situation. I liked how she formed the Metamora  Action Agency and basically made lemonade from lemons. She was very upbeat and a good leader for them. 

I didn’t love the little town, but I liked the different feel of the little town. I’m so used to a very warm and welcoming town, and this situation was different. With her mother-in-law and estranged husband, Cameron’s interactions with all of the townspeople was not always warm and friendly. It kind of had a dark feeling to it, but not overly dark.

I’m glad I was able to review this book for this tour.
