Featured Selection: End of the Lane by Sonia Parin
A cute, charming and wonderful cozy mystery with quirky characters and dialogue.
Abby Maguire’s first day in a new town and new job could be her last. Instead of writing about the weekend bake sale, she has to give a statement to the police.
It seems the small town of Eden is not the idyllic place she’d imagined it to be.
There’s a killer on the loose but the finger of suspicion is pointed at Abby.
Clean read: no graphic violence, sex, or strong language but lots of fun, quirky dialogue & characters.

Review by Rekha R.
This is the first book in A Dear Abby Cozy Mystery series and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED it! Quirky, gossipy yet loving – this is how I would describe the people of Eden. How can I not mention the Lamington’s cake! That is the main attraction of the story!
Abby’s first assignment was the weekend’s bake sale – the Lamington’s cake – sponge cake dipped in chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut. Sounds delicious! There is a recipe of the same at the end of the book. The writing was informal and neat.
I loved the author’s writing style. The plot and the story are marvelous. The ending was unexpected and good. Abby does prove to be a good crime reporter! Each and every character in the book play an important role in the story. It goes without saying that Doyle was a cute little darling – the star of the story.
Abby is the second best character in the story – her detective skills are excellent. If Abby is second best, then who is first, you ask? Doyle, of course!
End of the Lane is a cute, charming and wonderful cozy mystery.
