Murder on Lot B, a STARFIRE COZY MYSTERY: By London Lovett

Profile avatar for London LovettI know this will come as no surprise but I LOVE London Lovett books! A few months ago I shared my love for the Port Danby series {you can check that out HERE if you would like} Today I’m sharing my love for another one of London’s series called Starfire!

I absolutely ADORE this series, era and characters! Starfire takes place in the 1920’s {my all time favorite decade…I SO badly wish the 20s style would come back in style or easily available!}

Poppy Starfire and her brother Jasper are waiting on their next big adventure to walk in the front door of Starfire Detective Agency, yep Poppy is a private detective!

Los Angeles in 1923, Poppy has a new house in a new neighborhood tasting independence for the first time, she’s taking over the family detective agency with her young brother side kick Jasper! Everything is fantastic…except a case to investigate…until Anna walks through the door. Roger, Anna’s Hollywood stuntman brother has recently died in a extremely publicized accident. Was it really an accident or is there something far more nefarious going on? Poppy is on the case! With all kinds of twists and turns this book will no doubt have you hooked from the first page! 

I love that London always writes about strong women who can take care of themselves and aren’t afraid! I really appreciate this since it is very much my personality!

I have recommended all these books to pretty much every person I come in contact with! Seriously, I pretty much inundated my best friend with every single detail about each of LL series!
