Book Review: Poison in Paddington (Cassie Coburn Mysteries #1) by Samantha Silver
Title: Poison in Paddington (Cassie Coburn Mysteries #1)
Author: Samantha Silver
Stars: 4 stars
The introduction of a quirky duo of crime fighters in central London. Cassie, who was set to become an orthopedic surgeon, before her career and life were ruined in a vehicle accident has moved to London to try and restart her life. After, she goes to the Police to report a stolen bicycle, she meets a very madcap french woman and embarks on an investigation to solve 4 murders. Think of a brilliant female investigator with all of the deduction skills of the fabled Sherlock Holmes. This is what Violet brings to the table to compliment Cassie's medical knowledge. I was entertained from beginning to end.
When Cassie Coburn moved to London, she never thought she'd be involved in a quadruple homicide.
After a car accident ended her medical career before it even started, Cassie moved to London on a whim, expecting to see the sights and live the typical tourist backpacker lifestyle.
Instead she finds herself accompanying a French private detective, Violet Despuis, as they attempt to find out who poisoned four people in the middle of London.
Cassie's life soon includes this crazy detective, an ancient landlady with a curious past, a mischeivous orange cat who likes going for walks on a leash, and a super hot pathologist that Cassie is sure is out of her league.
And they haven't even found the murderer yet...
