Jane Darrowfield, Professional Busybody by Barbara Ross

Book One in the Jane Darrowfield Mystery Series

Jane Darrowfield, Professional Busybody (Jane Darrowfield #1) 4 STARS

Barbara Ross, author of the Maine Clambake Series, has another new Cozy Mystery Series…

What a refreshing start to new a series.

I adore books with middle-aged and older protagonists. They seem wiser and have more experience and are usually pretty darn comical.

In this book, Jane Darrowfield is a fixer, aka a professional busybody. She gets herself in situations and tends to help make them better. When she is asked to stay at a senior living center to help diffuse some tension, she agrees to help. What she didn’t expect was for it to be like high school all over again; the populars, the artsy, the outcasts, the rebels. What she really didn’t expect was to find herself in the middle of a murder investigation.

This book made me laugh as well as feel for the real life situations that some seniors are in. It was also refreshing to see budding romance in the senior community.

I am looking forward to the next chapter of Jane’s life and to see where it takes her.
