Recently widowed Sky Taylor moved to the small town of Pigeon Cove in Massachusetts where she writes a newspaper column and runs a cleaning business. Her business is thriving and she's made many friends in Pigeon Cove including her landlord Chloe Edwards and Abe Monahan, a frequent guest at the Millwood Bed and Breakfast, one of Sky's clients. Sky enjoys talking to "Old" Abe and when she hears he's back in town she gets to work early to say hello to him. But instead of saying hello she gets to s ...more
It was an okay book, not much upto my expectations, though I got a few tips on how to clean the house, and felt like doing a spring cleaning of my house, the murder mystery as such didnot appeal much to me. Characters somehow felt insipid, couldnot identify myself with the heroine or her friends, or even with the victim or killers, for that matter.
While I admit that any book that advertises cleaning tips included is clearly not my type of book, I was still disapointed in Scene of the Grime. the characters were weak, the mystery very thin, and the ending pulled out of a hat. I found myself not caring about who, what, or why, but how many, as in how many pages were left.
A nice start to the New Year. This cozy mystery is the first of a series. I enjoyed it. I like the main character and the story line stayed interesting. Definitely looking forward to the next in the series to see where it goes next.
I rarely start a book and don't finish it, but this one just didn't grab me. The writing was weak at best and the characters were too flat for my taste.
I always like a mystery with twists and turns, this one fit the bill. The house cleaning tips were fabulous.
2.5 Stars - quick read - will read next one in series to see how the characters develop

To be honest, I found this a little dull.
