Book 1 of the quirky, fun Port Danby Cozy Mystery series.

Lacey 'Pink' Pinkerton has left behind a six-figure job and her reputation as the million dollar nose--a nickname her super sense of smell earned her within the perfume industry. With her pet crow Kingston and a tabby cat named Nevermore, she is settling right into her new life in the small coastal town of Port Danby. With a flower shop opening soon and a full cast of quirky neighbors and friends, her new digs are exactly what she's been looking for. Away from the hectic hustle and bustle of the city, Lacey has found peace and happiness. However, her heightened sense of smell proves to be of use once again when a Port Danby neighbor turns up dead. Lacey finds herself caught up in an unexpected murder investigation alongside the handsome local detective, James Briggs. She's determined to find the killer and solve the murder mystery before any more bodies turn up.

Each book includes a delicious dessert recipe!

It was well written and enjoyable but the author really needs to get a book on was jarring to read that Pink was "peddling" her bicycle----selling it?---though that finally did get corrected. "Discrete" is not the same as "discreet", etc. But all in all I enjoyed the book and now I want a crow.

Short cute mystery, left open future aspects of town history and quirky characters. Really enjoyed the pets

I needed a break after a book that was emotionally charged. This provided that break. It was a change to have a sleuth who solved crimes with her sense of smell. I will look for others in this seried.

Enjoyed the humor and sleuthing of "Pink" The pet crow was a great addition with the haunted mansion down the street.

A light , quick read, with a couple of quirks...a pet crow and the ability to smell things the average person cannot. Filled with description , the narrative moves quickly along. A little romance is interjected but not so heavily that it be comes a romance novel.

Interesting characters. Slightly predictable who done it. Looks like the beginning of a fun series.

Enough suspense to make it a page turner with just a hint of a possible future romance thrown in - but which romantic interest? Interesting characters with just enough quirks to keep one anticipating a follow up mystery’s!
