When the daughter of a retired cop returns home to find a neighbor murdered, she takes on the investigation herself, with a little help from her new cat.

"A laugh-out-loud humorous cozy mystery with a charming detective and a page-turning 'whodunit' that'll keep you guessing right to the end!"

When her own father, a newly retired cop, is implicated in the murder, Stormy must chase down clues and uncover the town's secrets herself.

As she draws closer to identifying the killer, Stormy's own life may be in danger. That is unless Jeffrey, the mischievous Russian Blue cat who led her to the icy body in the first place, can flick his sleek gray tail at the final piece in the puzzle.

Death of a Dapper Snowman (Stormy Day Cozy Murder Mystery #1) 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 130 reviews.

160 pages, free. First in a series. A clean, cozy mystery. The second book costs $3.99. The third has not been published yet. The efiting is okay except the s, es, er, ed and ing have been left off a lot of words. The murder is nondescriptive. Some extremely mild violence. Some flirting. A few events are rather silly, such as renting out half her duplex and then not wanting to stay there because she does not want her tenate to know who she is. This is fun, humorous, entertaining read. Ages 16 and up. AD

This cozy mystery will leave you with a smile.  Stormy Day is back in town.  She’s left her ex fiancé and her high powered job to start over where she grew up.  When she stumbles upon a corpse buried in a snowman things get interesting real fast.  As the daughter of a cop Stormy can’t help but be interested in the investigation.  This is an action packed fun mystery that will keep you guessing, laughing and turning the page. Sign me up for the next one!

This is an okay mystery. It surely won't tax your brain much, and it won't violate many people's moral sensibilities relating to language, sex, gore, violence, or whatever. It is described as having "lots of turns and twists," which seemed to me more like crazed daydreams (on the part of the main character) with no grounding in reality than actual plot twists. In any "normal" plot a true twist is to have someone genuinely seem guilty or innocent and then have events occur to reverse that. In this book the so-called twists consist of countless times when the main character's thoughts go off a cliff and cause her to have insane suspicions about someone who in no way appears to be The Villain.

This is a pleasant, cozy mystery with a bit of humor and a quirky set of characters. It is an easy read but has a few editing problems. I enjoyed this and will read the sequels.

I burst out laughing so often while reading the book, that I now want to move to Miaty Falls just to hang with Jeffrey...and the wicked clever Stormy of course. Great, great amusing story that gets better and beter by the page.

Story just didn't do it for me. Stormy seems stuck in a high school mentality. The secondary characters were uninteresting. Won't be buying any more books in this series.

150 pages on my nook. First in a series. Some details were a little out there but it was a light and entertaining read. Slow at first but picked up about 40 pages in.

I love stories like this, a mystery to think about. The story isn't dark and scary like a lot of others, the characters were believable and love able. You got a fan. Catha Watkins Reese

Interesting story, well written. Funny. No sex, no profanity, vulgarity in only two places (I don't need to read about people throwing up, etc.). Good writing. Grammar needs to be improved a bit. "ly" omitted in one word; adjectives used instead of pronouns. Good punctuation. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was just what I needed on an "under-the-weather" day even though it wasn't a stormy day. (:
