Take the Monkeys and Run by Karen Cantwell – Book Review

Take the Monkeys and Run (Barbara Marr Murder Mystery, #1)Take the Monkeys and Run by Karen Cantwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book’s colorful cover and clever title drew me in. And the book itself did not let me down. Take the Monkeys and Run is a witty, clever book and I just fell in love with the main character Barb. She tries to be a perfect mom (but she’s not, like most of us) and her husband has moved out without explanation. Then she hears strange noises in the night, followed by a gaggle of monkies in her backyard the next morning. Could her life get any worse? Um, yes, and it does.

Throughout this novel I found myself giggling one minute and reading furiously the next, so seemless is the writing. If you enjoy flawed characters (real and likealbe) and you take a little cozy with your mysteries, then I reccomend this novel. It’s a quirky, fun read and you won’t be sorry!
