It may have been about a ten-month wait, but it's here! It's finally here! Dahlia Donovan brings us back to Cornwall and all things Motts--Motts being, Pineapple Mottley, the titular character of the Motts Cold Case Mysteries series. Pierced Peony is the second book in the series, and it has Motts finding a dead body being battered by the waves along the Cornish coast. As much as she knows it would be best to not become involved in the whole case, it can't be helped, not when her own curiosity gets the better of her. The deeper she delves into it, the more danger comes chasing after her. Will Motts be able to get all the answers she seeks before her investigation leads to her own untimely demise?
I quite enjoyed the first Motts Cold Case Mystery, which is why I was looking forward to reading the next one in the series. I adore Motts! She's got spunk and she's someone who's not to be trifled with. I love the fact that she's got as strong of a support system as she does, even though she very much cherishes her independence. The mystery had me very much entertained and intrigued, and Dahlia Donovan has proven to have a knack for cozy mysteries. Her writing is always on-point and she knows how to hook her readers and keep their interest throughout. I need more! I'm giving 4.5 stars Pierced Peony.
