Lively Banter – with a Twist!
Fans of Saffron Amatti’s Lucas Rathbone Mystery Series will love this short story! While it certainly can be read as a standalone, if you’ve enjoyed Amatti’s earlier books, this work is even better. (Get your copy on Amazon here.)
Right away I was caught up in the lively banter of the three “main” characters: Lucas Rathbone, Clara Jenkins, and Tommy Kilbourne – the subject of the title. Amatti constructs her characters’ dialogues with the kind of snappy rhythm a reader can’t resist. The author gets high marks for her carefully crafted repartee!
The plot of Tommy Learns a Lesson moves swiftly – it is a short story after all. The drama doesn’t soar too high in this newest adventure in the series, so the resolution is believable. And yet, Amatti dishes out a tasty twist at the end of the tale readers won’t see coming! It’s a fun little cherry on top of a delicious cozy mystery.
Treat yourself and check out Saffron Amatti’s series!
