's review

This is my first foray into the Jeri Howard mystery books. Even though Kindred Crimes was written nearly 30 years ago, it doesn't feel as dated as I'd expected.

The plot is solid, with a decent number of clues and suspicious characters to speculate about. I don't know the geographic area, and I occasionally got caught out by something/someone being easier or more difficult to visit (in terms of travel effort/time) than I'd thought on first impression.

The unmasking of the villain wasn't a huge surprise, but I enjoyed seeing how the pieces of evidence fitted into place. I'm not convinced the romance aspect added anything. This might be because I was more interested in putting the clues together than the people-as-people. This isn't a book where I feel compelled to read the sequel to find out what happens to the characters next.

Overall, a quick enjoyable read. I might check out the next book.
