The Missing Heir: Amelia Moore Detective Series
Many people have wondered what makes a cozy mystery. This type of mystery is meant to be a series of stories and the main character is usually a woman. A cozy always focuses on the main characters as they solve the case. As she investigates the mystery, you become part of her life and get to know her personally. It can be slow paced but not boring. This genre should always be G-rated.
In this series, Amelia Moore is the founder of the Moore Detective Agency and specializes in missing persons. Her cases have taken her to some very interesting places and put her in some dangerous situations, but she always solves the case. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing.
How do people feel about having a bit of romance in a mystery? Suko’s Notebook wrote:
“I love the sparks of romance — they spice things up and add much interest to the story.”
In this story, Dell Murphy has passed on and left a fortune to his nephew. He wants his nephew to continue his work at the orphanage in Mexico, but there is one problem. Neal Woods is missing! If Amelia and Rick can’t find him soon, the fortune will be turned over to Dell’s brother and sister who intend to close down “Uncle Dell’s Orphanage.” If that happens, where will the children go?
Library of Clean Reads wrote: “True to form, the author evokes a certain feeling for the country in which the mystery takes place. In this case, Mexico, replete with Mexican food, hot peppers, fiestas, and mariachi bands playing folk music!”
