 The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of THE DEATH IN THE DRINK (The Viola Roberts Cozy Mysteries, #7) . . .  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 description. Being with Viola again and the trip she made down Regency lane was fun. Not funny, but fun. I enjoyed learning new things and seeing Viola out of her comfort zone. You could see growth in her character. She still is blunt and to the point. I don't want her to lose that. 

Yvette has brought to life the characters and the sass of Viola will be loved through it all. The Death in the Drink  showed growth in the characters and expanded the writing of MacLeod. I find that with each one I want more from Viola and maybe a real relationship commitment. 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Yvette Keller. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

A local costuming guild has arrived in Astoria for a long weekend of recreating their favorite time period - the Regency. Think Jane Austen, sailing ships, high tea, a costume ball, and...a dead body.

When the guild’s nastiest member winds up dead in the drink, Viola is convinced it’s no accident. And after the husband of the deceased gets into a brawl on the front lawn of the town’s most well-known landmark, she knows something’s up. Armed with nothing more than a folding fan and her wits, she sets out to unveil the killer before somebody else winds up in Davy Jones’ locker.

Shéa MacLeod writes urban fantasy post-apocalyptic sci-fi paranormal romances with a twist of steampunk. Mostly because she can’t make up her mind which genre she likes best so she decided to write them all. After six years living in an Edwardian town house in London just a stone’s throw from the local cemetery, Shéa headed back to her hometown of Portland, Oregon. She plans to live out her days eating mushroom pizza, drinking too many caramel lattes, exploring exotic locales, and avoiding spiders. Shéa is the author of the Viola Roberts Cozy Mysteries and the bestselling Lady Rample Mysteries.
