Review: FOR LOVE OF LIVVY by J.M. Griffin

A strange package arrives to Vinnie after the recent death of her Aunt Livvy. Ever since then, something has been nagging at her about the strange death. But what? The death was not violent; she was found dead in her car. It is weird that we still don’t know how she died.

The story had a slow and unamusing start with too much talk on the small Rhode Island town and the ancient Victorian house Vinnie inherited. The mystery was a little drab and it took a long time to get to it. It seems to be all about the stone gems.

Although Vinnie came up with a snarky quip or two, the story just didn’t compel me as much as I thought it would. I just didn’t buy Vinnie as the detective type, even though she teaches criminal justice at the college. Still, those who can’t do, teach.

My rating: 2 stars
