THE DEATH IN THE DRINK is the seventh book in the Viola Roberts Cozy Mystery series. Though each will stand alone, it is far better to read them all and in the order of release.

The best of the three I have heard and I really want the rest of the series now. This was a fun, cozy mystery. The established characters continue to charm my heart while the new characters delighted my funny bone.

The story was well choreographed with plenty of interesting research into a new topic to keep it interesting

Viola has returned and all her friends including Lucas. It feels like lots of time should have past but it has not. Viola finds that she in back in the vicinity of a dead body. I not so sure that this one didn't deserve the death, but maybe not so dramatic. That type of death should be reserved for the truly nasty. Maybe I should retract that. Nasty was being to nice of a descript

This is a really entertaining cosy murder, mystery in the Viola Roberts series. The characters, humour and intrigue are great. Viola once again finds herself embroiled in a murder but this time it’s at a Regency re-enactment party she has been coerced into going to. Some of the description and situations Viola finds herself in are hilarious, I love her sense of humour too. The narration fits the book perfectly, giving the characters individual voices and bringing out the humour in the story well ...more

Viola and Cheryl are at it again in the latest mystery in Death in the Drink. You know you have a great story when you enjoy spending time with the characters. It doesn't get better than that for the reader. The Viola Roberts series is much more than just good entertaining characters. The plotting, mystery, suspense are well written. The book is even better when you add the narration of Yvette Keller. Her voice creation and acting was perfect for this series.

Dress Up Can Be Dangerous

I truly enjoy this series. This time around Viola gets to dress up in Regency era clothes. I had fun researching the different styles as I was reading. It brought the story more to life & I learned a lot of interesting facts. It’s also nice to read a story where the main character is mature, intelligent, & not a twenty something who only discovers the killer when the killer comes after her!

The Story:
The Death in the Drink is book 7 in the Viola Roberts Cozy mystery series - and can easily be read as a stand alone however, as there is enough backstory on each character that you will not feel lost. Once again where ever Viola goes someone is bound to wind up dead whilst she is around - you think she has some bad Karma but no she just has a bad case of being in the right place at the wrong I guess you put it. Her bff Cheryl has persuaded Viola to join her in some cozy Regency re-enac

Her favorite poem as a child was ‘Jabberwocky’, and Her favorite authors were Agatha Christie and Edgar Allan Poe. Which probably explains a lot.

After a six year sojourn in London, England, a dearth of good donuts has driven her back to her hometown. She now resides in the leafy green hil
