Kill Fee

I received a copy of THE KILL FEE by Fiona Vietch Smith in exchange for an honest review from Kregel Publication.  It is the second book in the Poppy Denby Investigations series.  I am a huge fan of mysteries, and this book, as well as its predecessor, offer hours of entertainment.  What I liked best was the fact that it takes place in the 1920s. I am a sucker for historical fiction.  THE KILL FEE focuses on Red and White Russians.  This was new to me, and I was quick to look up more about them after finishing the book.  All in all, this series reminds me of Miss Fischer’s Murder Mysteries.  If you are a fan of that television show, then this series is for you.

Poppy is a strong female lead.  She isn’t ready to back down, and this places her in many a treacherous situation.  If you love mysteries, you won’t be disappointed, although I recommend this more to history fans than mystery fans.  If you liked the first book, you will be happy to see that Poppy is the same loveable woman, and that the author is still adept at weaving an intriguing mystery into a vibrant setting.
