Review by: Jan Tangen on June 16, 2017 :
murder, law-enforcement, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, cozy-mystery, contemporary-romance

I dunno, but I thought it was a great cozy with some remarkable twists. Maybe it's because I'm a red, or maybe it's from the past of working in a teaching hospital. I did like the apt Irish proverbs at the beginning of each chapter even though that is not my ethnicity. But traveling through the tangles of small town long memories and grudges is familiar to all of us who grew up in one, even here in the north. Mandy already has an overload of serious problems with poor solutions when a disappearing body and a hot mysterious man enter her life. And things only get murkier from there. I really enjoyed this afternoon read!

I totally enjoyed reading Remote Consequences! It is what I would call a cozy mystery. When Mandy comes back home after her Aunt Patty dies, she has her sister Padget to take care of. Her sister has special needs. Mandy wanted to become a doctor, but now must work for a cable company to make money for her and her sister. When she goes to the Mayor's house to fix an issue with the cable, she finds a frozen body in a freezer in the attic of all places! This is only the beginning of a downward spiral for Mandy. When her ex-boyfriend Ty is the detective at the police station, he blows off her report. Then all kinds of awful things start happening to Mandy.What dirty secrets are waiting to be let out? Can Mandy figure out who the murderer is before she, herself is killed or sent off to jail? Who is the mystery man that keeps showing up at will? Read the book to find out.
