Book Review: A Sinister Sense by Allison Kingsley

Title: A Sinister Sense: A Raven's Nest Bookstore Mystery
Author: Allison Kingsley
Published July 3, 2012; Berkley Prime Crime

About: Bookstore owner Clara Quinn tries to clear Rick Sanders, a potential love interest, when Rick is charged with the murder of a man found in the back of his pickup truck.

 Comments: Two devices make this cozy mystery more interesting - a dog named Tatters and a paranormal element, Clara's inherited Quinn Sense. The Quinn Sense gives Clara more insight and a keener perspective; voices whisper into her ear and help her with mystery solving. This is the third in the series, so Clara's been at it for a while and presumably getting better.

A cute and easy cozy to read on a lazy afternoon.

Thanks to the publisher for a review copy of this book.


  1. Sounds like a nice cozy series! I used to read this genre, but haven't in a while.

  2. This does sound like a fun cozy! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  3. I'm seeing a lot more cozy mystery reviews out there lately, and it's a good development I think :) There's a cozy mystery for everyone. I'm not sure whether the paranormal element in this one will appeal to me though.

  4. Who could resist a cozy about a bookstore owner? Love the cover.

  5. Love the whole idea of this one!!!

  6. This series looks fun. I'm a sucker for a great dog character and Tatters is such a great name!


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
