Bloomfield is determined to get a promotion. She has left
Chicago and has gone to Mackinac Island to help Rudy Randolph
with his bicycle business. Rudy is the father of her boss
and Evie will do just about anything for a promotion. Rudy
broke his leg and needs help running Rudy's Rides. Evie has
no idea that there are no cars on Mackinac Island and the
only way to get around is by bicycle, horse drawn carriage
or by walking. Finally Evie arrives at Rudy's Rides –
only to find herself in the middle of a huge argument. Bunny
Harrington has just told Rudy that she will get the town council
to shut down his shop.
that night, while delivering several bicycles, Evie sees someone
sitting by some trees. Upon a closer look, Evie finds a very
dead Bunny Harrington. What looks like a horrible accident
turns out to be murder. Someone has tampered with the brakes
of Bunny's bicycle. Now the police think Rudy is their prime
suspect. It doesn't look like Evie will be getting a promotion
at work any time soon. Evie had better be careful as she tries
to solve this murder – she could end up with a flat
to ponder: Why was Bunny riding her bicycle at night? Why
is someone setting up Rudy Randolph to be the prime suspect?
Did Evie really bring a black cloud with her?
since I was young, I have always loved a book that included
a map. It made the book special. Now that I am much older,
when I book comes with a map – I am thrilled. Geared
for the Grave is no exception. This is a brand new series
by one of my favorite authors. It is well-plotted and cozy
mystery lovers will enjoy solving the murder and meeting all
the delightful characters. The story takes off and you might
want to hang onto your bike helmet as the action is non-stop.
I could not put this book down – I had to find out whodunit.
So, if you like your mystery to have some pedaling action,
then you should be reading Geared for the Grave.
