Reviews of Loose Screw (Dusty Deals Mystery Series) by Rae Davies

Fajriy Arunna reviewed on Feb. 19, 2018

A good cozy mystery read.
This book has that typical protagonist: independent, curious, in search of love, and a shop owner. The twists and turns during the mystery solving are quite compelling with some laughable moments. Although I found some parts are difficult to relate to, I enjoyed the story just fine.

This is the first book in the Dusty Deals mystery series. You meet Lucy and her Malamute Kiska in her antique shop, Dusty Deals. Lucy doesn't look for trouble, but it seems to find her. There's a murder mystery in each book along with some very funny moments with Lucy and her friends. Twist and turns abound as Lucy tries to solve the mysteries. I have every book of this series and can't wait for the next one. Rae Davies is a great story teller.

This is a beautifully written cozy with nicely developed characters. I'll definitely read more by this author. One thing bothers me: the story revolves around a group of Native American artifacts decorated with eagle feathers. Federal law prohibits the possession of eagle feathers except by Native Traditionals and even they must have permits. Also, I've been burning sage for 25 years and have never had a bunch flare up in flames--dried sage smolders, that's why it's called smudging. I wish the author had done a little more research.

A stubborn and independent reporter turned antiques dealer turned detective. Lots of red herrings, and a descriptive environment. I loved it, and hope the next one comes out soon!
