My Review of The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum
Okay, given that this book is a bit outside of my normal reading genres, my view on it might be a little ‘off’. So, take it with a large grain of salt. (Well, maybe not too big of a grain, considering this is actually a positive review of a lovely little book.)
I truly enjoyed The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum. It was a cute book that easily provides a bit of relief from the darker subjects I normally read about.. The title/cover made me chuckle, the setting was so small-town, and the characters so typical that it really did fit the ‘cozy mystery’ tag. I had to keep reminding myself that there was a mystery (there legitimately is one, by the way), because this was just such a light read for me that I couldn’t take it seriously.
Light on the romance, just enough of the paranormal stuff to earn the title, two cops that seriously reminded me of the blonde girl and her boss from Fringe, and the requisite motorcycle hunk plus the small-town girl discovering that she missed home after all (aww!), are all stirred thoroughly and written well enough to keep you reading. Kirsten Weiss is truly a talented writer who has mastered the art of the sweet and the absurd.
Quirky, entertaining, and light, with a satisfying ending, The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum by Kirsten Weiss is perfectly proper (sorry, not sorry!) for a comfortable read on a cold night.
