Review: 2 Stars

I recently discovered the cozy mystery genre and found that I really enjoy it. It’s a fresh change of pace apart from what  usually read and it’s a lot less intense. Cozy mysteries are usually set in charming small towns, filled with quirky, gossipy characters and of course there is some type of mystery. Death Comes in Threes however, was rather disappointing. I really wanted to like this novel, there were even dogs on the cover, so I thought it would be an adorable fun read.

I just couldn’t find much about this novel that I actually enjoyed. The whole thing felt a bit cliche. I didn’t like the characters, the dialogue felt forced and just over the top. The gay best friend was very cliche and stereotypical and without much depth and the main character didn’t feel real. Add all of that to a plot that felt half developed and a cringe-y romance and this whole book was just a bust for me.
