    1 thought on “Croaked: an Edgar Rowdey Cape Cod Mystery”

    1. This is a thoroughly enjoyable murder mystery involving a number of eccentric characters, some of whom have lived on Cape Cod all their lives while some are newcomers. Similarly, some are “artistic”--an artist-author, a filmmaker, a theatrical couple--while others work in restaurants and a bookstore, or as police officers. The subtitle is a bit misleading because Edgar Rowdey is neither the protagonist nor the detective; however, he is a sort of tribute to Edward Gorey, whom the author knew, [...]

    2. Young Lydia Vivaldi arrives on Cape Cod looking for an old friend and hoping to make a new life for herself but she soon discovers that her friend has died in what appears to be a tragic accident and strange things are going on in this sleepy little village. She finds a job working at a local eatery and as she begins to get to know the regulars, in short order, one of her new friends is murdered outside the restaurant. If you are from Yarmouth Port, you will recognize Exmouth, Quanset, and their [...]

    3. Very engaging - the characters were wonderfully realistic and quirky. The prose drops you into the action, so I found I could hardly put it down. LOVED the Edward Gorey tie-in -- I could imagine that the author had a lot of fun writing about that character (since she had a longstanding friendship with the famous author).

    4. This was kind of fun. A small Cape Cod town full of quirky characters who are much more important to the story than the actual murder or its solution. I don't feel a strong desire to go get the next one in the series, but it was an entertaining way to rest my brain between theology books over the past few days.

    5. I really enjoyed this first-in-series mystery. The characters are likeable and three-dimensional, the mystery has all the right twists and turns, and the writing is breezy and engaging. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

    6. This book is a real page-turner with many moving pieces, wonderfully fey characters, and delightful surprises throughout. Great Cape Cod color, terrific fun, and a must for anyone who loves to curl up with a good mystery.

    7. Verburg's pacing, quirky characters, and writing style make "Croaked" a fun read. I got the feeling Verburg laughed as she wrote this delightful mystery! I enjoyed it immensely!

    8. Entertaining yarn with Edward Gorey like character along helping solve the mystery. Atmospheric and definitely a cozy mystery read.
