Book Review of “Death of a Dapper Snowman” by Angela Pepper


Gift shop owner Stormy Day is settling into her new life until she comes across a frozen body, hidden inside a well-dressed snowman.

When her own father 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.

Genre: Mystery / Cozy Mystery / Crime / Murder / Detective / Amateur Detective
My Review:

Cozy Mysteries are always fun and interesting to read. They are light hearted, fun and non-intense, which helps unwind even with a murder mystery. Death of a Dapper Snowman is of the same type. The story is so smooth that you will get lost in it even without knowing it. Even for a cozy mystery, this one really takes the cake with having everything in the exact proper quantity. Unlike regular cozy mysteries, this one has good enough speed to keep the reader engrossed and not too much to make it fast paced and anxious to read.

The characters are simple and easy to understand. The flow is smooth. The plot is brilliant, with surprise twists and intense suspense towards the end. The climax is something which could not have been guessed. The story is narrated in first person which gives a first hand experience kind of feeling throughout the story. Simple natured behaviour of country folks are nicely given.

Overall, there is no reason why “Death of a Dapper Snowman” should get anything less than 5 stars. The book ranks high in every possible category. The experience of reading was really amazing and unique.
