Review: Murder on the Mullet Express by Gwen Mayo and Sarah Glenn. Mystery and Horror, LLC

This is a splendid tale set in challenging times and an interesting location.

We have two ladies of a certain age, Cornelia Pettijohn and Teddy Lawless, who served as nurses in the Great War and now accompany their eccentric inventor uncle on a trip to exotic Florida in 1926. The West Coast Development Company is offering land for sale in Homosassa, Florida, and Uncle Pettijohn thinks he might like the change of scenery.

But things don’t go exactly as planned. Their automobile breaks down, and the intrepid trio find themselves traveling on a local train dubbed The Mullet Express because its usual cargo consists primarily of fish. Travel is further complicated by two suspicious deaths en route.

Teddy and Cornelia have their hands full solving the case and keeping their adventurous uncle safe and out of trouble.

The author has provided most valuable historical background and vintage cocktail recipes at the end of the book, which makes the tale all the more intriguing. This is a fun read.  My thanks to authors, publisher, and NetGalley for providing an advance copy to read and review.
