Poisoned Primrose



Poisoned Primrose 
Motts Cold Case Mystery Book 1 
by Dahlia Donovan 
Genre: Cozy Mystery 


Autistic, asexual, and almost forty, Pineapple “Motts” Mottley flees London with her cat and turtle to a quaint cottage in Cornwall. She craves the peace of life in a small village. The dead body buried in her garden isn’t quite what she had in mind, though.

Unable to resist her curiosity, she falls directly into a mess of trouble and runs head-first into the attractive detective inspector, Teo Herceg. She tries to balance her business with the investigation, but as the killer focuses on her, staying alive becomes trickier than advanced origami.

Will Motts survive the onslaught of murderously bad luck?

Can she solve the mystery before it all spins out of control and off a cliff? 


My Review...

Really a fun read. Fun characters too. I began to love this cozy  just because of the quaint village and the people too. The descriptions of both made everything very visual for me. It’s true this story has what I call the necessary elements of a cozy. You know, your amateur sleuth moving from the busy world to a small village, an inherited property, and  a dead body of course.  

I love cozies. They are a breath of fresh air. Only so many murders; only so much blood shed but this story has a little more depth than some. This book’s characters aren’t just all a little quirky in a cute village. There are problems. The real-life kind. It all makes for a good read.  

This is Book 1 in a series titled “Motts Cold Case Mystery”. I most certainly hope there’s a Book 2 soon.








Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.
