Death by drone with an arsenal of seafood shells? That really would be One for the Hooks (eh, books).
The Tarzana Hookers are not what you think. They are a club of crocheters that meet in a local bookstore. Molly is an assistant manager in the bookstore and an active member of the club. Molly is also a fifty-ish widow with two grown sons, an ex-boyfriend and a new plus one.
Sloan is a stager working on a soon-to-be short-time rental home in the Valley. She contacts Molly trying to sell her a group of yarn samples that were found in the house. Soon afterwards, Sloan is killed by a pile of seafood shells dropped on her by a drone. Molly is asked by her ex, who is a local detective, to be on the lookout for clues.
One for the Hooks is a nice mix of family drama, cozy mystery, and romance. It is nice to see a heroine who is not in her thirties still have a love life. The solution to the mystery was impossible to solve until one clue was revealed at the 90% mark. This is also when Molly unmasked the motive and the killer. That didn’t seem quite fair. Hopefully, there was an earlier clue that I missed.
Overall, One for the Hooks was a fun book to read. The ending was a complete and twisty surprise! I will definitely be looking for the next book in the series. 4 stars!
Thanks to Crooked Lane Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
