Dead in the Shop is the riveting conclusion to the Grasmere Cottage Mystery Trilogy. If you were waiting for the series to be complete before getting it, please do yourself a favor and do it now. You have no excuses and you'll be missing out otherwise.

This installment was action-packed and intense, we finally learn the identity of the killer, but not until Ms. Donovan is well and ready to reveal him, and everything else is tied up nicely. My favorite part throughout the series was definitely Valor and Bishan's relationship. Valor is so amazing with Bishan and it was lovely to see Bishan flourish under pressure and come out of his shell a little, especially considering he was under such stress.

All in all, a definite must-read!

Dead in the Shop is the third and final book in a trilogy by Dahlia Donovan. All three books are connected and continue the same story and mystery so I’d recommend that if you’re going to read this you read them in the appropriate order. The murder mystery spread among the three books so you won’t find out until this book who is responsible and the reason for it.

This series is the first I’ve read from this author and I thought the writing was really well-done. I especially love cozy mysteries and I thought this series fit well within that genre. The author has built a world full of interesting people. In this book we’re back with the story being told from Valor’s perspective.

This was my favorite book of the series, maybe because there’s a conclusion with no cliffhanger ending. What can I say, I’m easy that way! But, this story is any easier for Bishan and Valor, it’s even crazier and fast-paced. The men may want their life to go back to normal but they have quite a bit to overcome to get there. But they do and are stronger for it.

Something I loved in this series is the relationship between Bishan and Valor. They very much have a strong, loving relationship but not in the “traditional” sense of one found in a romance book and that I especially loved. I really enjoyed seeing Bishan and Valor’s relationship in this series, something I don’t typically say about mysteries.

The mystery was written really well and you won’t figure out who the murderer is until the author wants you to. I highly recommend this series but make sure you have all three books ready to go so you don’t have to wait cause cliffhangers suck!

Rating: 5 stars!!
