Hanged Man's Noose

Hanged Man's Noose by Judy Penz Sheluk


Another fun read from Judy Penz Sheluk. This is such an enjoyable cozy. It has all the basics…a neat town, a few neat stores and as usual and as in all small towns, a lot of nice folks and a few nosy ones. This town, called Lounts Landing, is named after a traitor. While there is no actual treason against one’s country in this book, there are definitely a few traitors. Another thing this neat little town has is an antique store called surprisingly enough, The Glass Dolphin. Antiques are something I like and even though this is not a story about antiques, I really like the mention of them and occasional descriptions. While I have called this a cozy and a fun, easy read, it is definitely not lightweight. There are plenty of twists and turns and dead bodies in this story:)

I read Book 2 first and liked it so much I was fortunate to get Book 1 to read. Both books can totally stand alone and have very different storylines even though they involve some of the same characters. Characters I really liked. I think Sheluk is very good at giving her characters a lot of personality. When an author is good at describing characters, not their physical characteristics but their personalities, it makes them very enjoyable and the story even more readable.
That’s what happens in both of the books in the series. I hate to be so pushy here Judy Penz Sheluk, but please hurry up and write Book 3.

  1. Thanks so much for the great review. I love this book and it's also my debut novel, which makes it more special to me. I am working on book 3 now, but it's early days.
