My Recommendation

The Strange Brew by M. N. Cox

Excellent debut novel – creepy cozy mystery that bodes well for this author. 

What I liked:
* Dora :business owner, survivor of abusive relationship, happily married to Sayed, sees ghosts, associates some ghostly appearances with odors, has avoided her abilities, grows in this story, look forward to finding out what happens in her future
* Sayed: business owner, calm, supportive, loving, kind, married to Dora, strong family ties, has a scary event to contend with in this book, survivor, good friend
* The healthy relationship that Dora and Syed share
* The supporting characters
* The small town setting 
* The plot, pace, and writing
* The paranormal elements
* The mysteries solved 
* The twists, turns, and surprises
* The conclusion that indicates there will be another book to look forward to

What I didn’t like:
* Who and what I was meant not to like
* Having to wait to find out what will happen next

Did I enjoy this book? yes
Would I read more by this author? yes 

Thank you to NetGalley and The Long Hot Spell Publishing for the ARC – this is my honest review.
