Tabitha’s just minding her own business running her little Australian cafe when she ends up in the middle of a police investigation. A busker is found dead in a net in a band’s spare room, but she learns that before that, a cat was caught in a net and her step-brother-in-law was caught in a cage inside his house. The police rule the busker’s death an overdose, but when Tabitha finds an electrified ping pong ball in her purse, she thinks something else is going on and it just might involve her missing landlord.
A Trifle Dead is sometimes excellent, though at other times it drags. The beginning drew me in right away and then end was exciting and quite surprising. Sometimes in the middle, though, it seemed to kind of lose its way with the author just trying to fill up pages. Overall it was an okay book and good for anyone who really enjoys cozy mysteries.
