Kerry Greenwood is the author that I give credit to for piquing my interest in cozy mysteries. I have really been enjoying the Phryne Fisher’s Murder Mysteries series so far, and the fifth book The Green Mill Murder is no exception.
This book differs a lot from the others. Although there is, as always, two stories that are connected, the way that they are written together made it feel like you were reading two separate books in a series instead of just the one. Not that that’s a bad attribute.
This novel opens with a murder that is witnessed by Phryne while she is at a dance. Her partner mysteriously disappears after the murder and the majority of the book is spent looking for them and then solving the actual mystery of who committed the murder.
This novel keeps you on your toes and keeps you guessing through its duration. I rate this book a 7 out of 10. It was a short, enjoyable read that was easy to get through.
