Review: The Ivy Malone Mysteries Series by Lorena McCourtney

on January 27, 2011

I came across the Ivy Malone cozy mysteries series on the Kindle Top 100 Free Downloads listing, and ordered the first book, “Invisible”, for free. I just loved the story of this spunky senior citizen who gets pulled into solving crimes! Ivy is a widow, whose only child has died as well. When she loses her best friend, too, she determines to figure out who is desecrating a nearby cemetery. Then when a young neighbor woman disappears and is found murdered, Ivy decides to figure out who is to blame.

Ivy is perky and funny and reminds me of a new age Miss Marple. She has a strong faith in God and this is a theme woven throughout the stories.

I liked Ivy so much I purchased her next story through Kindle, too. There are two more, I believe, that I plan to get in time.

    I’ve noticed there are lots of “first in a series” freebies on Kindle – the marketers know what they are doing! This does sound good – I like the idea that the main character is older and a faithful woman.

      I love all the Ivy Malone series. I have a nook and I love that I can download these books. I hope there are more books in this series coming out soon.

    Read all the Ivy books (4 to date) and wish there were more!
