Little Shop of Homicide by Denise Swanson

Hi guys, this is book 1 in the Devereaux Dime Store Mystery Series featuring the main character Devereaux  Sinclair. I was hoping this series was going to be as awesome as Denise's other long running Scumble River series and I was thrilled to find it is. I love the idea of setting the story around a dime store, unique and wonderful. Devereaux is a new business owner of a dime store where she also makes up custom gift baskets and everything is going great until one day a Detective shows up in her shop ....well that's never good!!!When he has news that one of the baskets she made up were found at a murder scene with her fingerprints all over it  it is the beginning of a battle to find out the truth of what happened to the victim before she ends up on the inside where the need to make gift baskets is nil.
I loved this!!!! The characters are great fun and I am loving the flirting  that is going on between Dev and Jake... I can't wait to see what is going to happen in future books with these two. As I said before I love the idea of setting the story in  an old store that is full of character , a bit like Dev herself!
Dev is a really strong woman and even though she is up to her neck in bother she does not feel sorry for herself but gets on with things. Of course it helps that she has great friends and family around her and that if she does not find out who the real killer is  then she could find herself in the clink. No greater motivation needed then that!
All in all a wonderful first book in a series!!!
