chief of police, who Alberta used to babysit when he was a child In MURDER IN TRANQUILITY PARK, the second in the Ferrara Family Mystery series by J D Griffo, Alberta has taken up jogging at Jinx s urging and the two of them are out for their early morning jog through a local park They see a treehouse neither one has spotted before and when they go over to investigate they find a dead body The first thing they do is look around for clues, all while waiting for Vinnie to show up on the scene Along with the dead body, Jinx is trying to find out why her roommate Nola, who is now dating a member of Vinnie s police force, is acting strangely Alberta and Jinx s investigation take them to the school where Nola teaches early one morning where they discover things that complicate the picture of what is going on in Nola s life As the plot progresses, things becomecomplicated and less clear for everyone involved Father Sal, who appeared in the first book in the series, makes an appearance again because of his past knowledge of the principal of Nola s school Questions arise about the now dead man and why Nola took out a restraining order against him only to vacate it days later, Nola s principal s odd behavior and previous acquaintance with the dead man, the equally odd behavior of Kichiro, the policeman Nola is dating, and how all these tie together, if they do The character s are all well crafted, with each one being individual and having their own particular skills as well as flaws The importance of family is a constant theme throughout the book, as well as a small, but constant, theme of the importance of faith These come to the front whenever the action in the book takes a significant turn There are good clues and some excellent red herrings, although they were all easy for me to solve It was enjoyable to read and see where my solutions were being supported and, in the end, to be proven correct Overall, it was a light, breezy read, a good representative of the cozy genre Although it is the second in the series, it is an independent story and there is no need to have read the first in the series in order to enjoy this one.This is a good beach, train, plane, etc read It s easy to pick up and put down without losing the threads of the story The only disappointment I had was toward the end of the book when some character s put themselves in harm s way in an effort to increase the tension of the book Also the unlikely behavior of the chief of police toward an individual under arrest to saywould be a spoiler , create my two minor objections to the book.If you are looking for an easy to read, gentle murder mystery, this one offers interesting characters along with some humorous activity I haven t read the first book in this series yet, but I had no trouble at all getting to know the characters and the brief rundown on their lives, who they were, etc I have to say I m anxious now to read the first book just to read Alberta and crew s first case They were such an awesome family, and I love how Alberta s granddaughter Jinx isn t just a granddaughter, the two are really good friends, even running buddies Which was conveniently a good way to nearly trip over a dead body.I love ho I haven t read the first book in this series yet, but I had no trouble at all getting to know the characters and the brief rundown on their lives, who they were, etc I have to say I m anxious now to read the first book just to read Alberta and crew s first case They were such an awesome family, and I love how Alberta s granddaughter Jinx isn t just a granddaughter, the two are really good friends, even running buddies Which was conveniently a good way to nearly trip over a dead body.I love how Alberta, her sister Helen, sister in law Joyce and Jinx all work together when there s a murder They even got Jinx s boyfriend Freddy and Alberta s boyfriend Sloan involved The police chief was a friend of Berta s from school, so he was good about putting up with the amateur sleuths Berta s line to him at the end was pretty cute, you ll have to read it I was surprised in the twist at the end, because I was really sure one person had done this Hadn t seen that coming at all, and the showdown was an exciting one I hope this series continues, and in the meantime, I definitely want to read the first book Dollycas s ThoughtsThe Ferrara Family Detective Agency has stumbled quite literally onto another case Jinx has convinced her grandmother, Alberta Scaglione to exercise, in the form of jogging a few mornings a week Their path leads them through scenic Tranquility Park On the way into the park, Alberta notices a treehouse in one of the trees On the way out of the park, she notices a body under the treehouse They quickly determine the man is dead, but assume he has fallen to his death from the Dollycas s ThoughtsThe Ferrara Family Detective Agency has stumbled quite literally onto another case Jinx has

in case they check out the scene thoroughly and call in the rest of their family before calling the police to inform them that, yes, there has been indeed another murder.Chief Vinny D Angelo is an old friend and will admit the ladies helped solve the last murder case but he orders them to stay out of this one Seriously, he knows that is never going to happen because his friend Alfie is never going to back away from anything she has set her mind on doing He just hopes and prays none of them gets hurt.Mr Griffo has created such wonderful characters The Ferrara Family Detective Agency is made up of Alberta Marie Teresa Ferrara Scaglione, 64, a secret millionaire who inherited her home and her wealth from her Aunt Carmela She is joined by her granddaughter Jinx, who has returned to the area to take a job at the local newspaper, her sister, the former nun, and her sister in law who has retired after working years on Wall Street Together they love their Italian food unless cooked by Jinx, who tries to make their favorites no carb and gluten free, several flavors of vodka, and solving murders These characters are likable, engaging, funny, and at times absolutely crazy They all go to great lengths to get answers The dialogue between these characters is priceless Alberta s Sicilian Catholic roots play heavily throughout the book Each chapter starts with an Italian phrase and Italian runs through the dialogue but is always translated in a way that never slows the flow of the story.The mystery turned out muchcomplex than I ever imagined Jinx s roommate is the police s prime suspect but the evidence is just too tidy There were many twists and turns that brought other suspects to light It was when the second body is discovered that a few little tingles for my suspect cemented themselves in my mind I just had to keep reading to see if I was right The ending is very dramatic and scary but one part of it felt a little off to me I think what happened was muchdangerous than even was portrayed.Murder in Tranquility Park is a great addition to this series The characters are fun and entertaining I really enjoyed this story Murder in Tranquility Park by J D Griffo was an entertaining cozy with some very likable characters.The plot is smoothly paced with red herrings, several suspects, enough twists to keep me guessing and a dramatic reveal that had me gripping my chair This author is new to me but her descriptive writing pulled me write into the story I liked Alberta, Helen, Joyce and Jinx as each one has a distinct personality that added so much flavor to the

well as smart You have a reporter, ex nun, and a lawyer They are a quirky group, and are they tenacious In this book, Jinx s boyfriend Freddy and Alberta s boyfriend Sloan also get involved in the investigation We meet some new characters as well as some familiar ones Police Chief, Vinnie, once again allows the Ferrara family some leeway in investigating When he was young, Alberta babysat him, so they had a relationship from the past The plot was well developed and the pace was quite quick I was pretty sure I had figured out who the murderer was, but with one final twist, I was blown out of the water The ending was quite tense and surprising Having said all that, I really enjoyed this story This was a very quick read that I enjoyed right from the beginning If you enjoy a cozy with quirky
