Review: Murder at Morningside

Murder at Morningside Murder at Morningside by Sandra Bretting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

By Sandra Bretting
This is a new author to me. The setting of the book takes place in Louisiana and comes with all the southern charm you come to expect from the south. I loved the old sayings she usod like “Lorda mercy” I haven’t heard that one since I was a child.

I love her writing style like “It seems the girl and her fiancĂ© must have eaten supper before they said grace” descripts a baby bump under her top. And “Terrible shame. Yellow caution tape dressed the bathroom door like a satin sash on a prom queen’s dress”. And this one “Why, Missy, you look prettier than a pat of butter on a stack of wheat cakes.” And on and on it goes.

I loved the story, characters. This is first in a new series. This is the second time I have read the book. Love it.
