Nekesa (Nuh-kes-ah) Afia (Ah-fee-ah) is a Canadian millenial who is doing her best. When she isn't writing, she is either sewing, swing dancing, or actively trying to pet every dog she sees. [from Dead Dead Girls, 2021]

It's been many years since I've started and finished reading a book in the same day but I couldn't put it down

I think with time and effort Nekesa Afia will be a good writer, but this book was rushed to print I think. A good story line that suffered from jagged and uneven writing, and floundered a few times moving the story forward. I will read her next book, hoping for improvement. However, I was not at all impressed by this in the afterword: "Every notable contribution to 1920's culture......was made by Black people, then stolen and repackaged for white consumption." A bit excessive.

This was a lot of fun. I definitely would not call it a 'cozy' murder mystery in any way, but it was a quick, enjoyable read.

Louise was a great protagonist. Gutsy and brave, but vulnerable and compassionate - perfect for a crime solving heroine. She doesn't freeze in a crisis situation.

This was a good palette cleanser to read between larger books. There is a small twist at the end that I thought was a good route to go, but i had a hard time being motivated to read.
