Dead Wrong by Leighann Dobbs Book Review 

Dead Wrong by Leighann Dobbs  is a light paranormal mystery with a side of romance, and is the first book in  Blackmore Sisters Mystery series.

Up until now life in quiet in the sea-side town of Noquitt Maine running their store that offers herbal remedies and crystal healing for locals and tourists. But when Prudence Littlefield is found dead, a threat made by Morgan is all the sheriff needs to pin the murder on her.

With their futures on the line the sisters must uncover the real murderer and find out why the sheriff is all too happy to send Morgan to prison.

With the help of new to town, police detective Jake Cooper, Fiona must take the leap and put her sister’s life and her heart in his hands.

This is a great story and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries.




Excerpt from Dead Wrong by Leighann Dobbs  

“Just what is the meaning of this?” Fiona stepped closer to the Sheriff. The smell of stale cigarettes kept her a few paces from getting right in his face. She felt her stomach curdle as he turned his rheumy eyes on her. The ever-present toothpick bobbed up and down. “Mrs. Littlefield was found not one quarter mile from here. Murdered.”

“And what makes you think my sister did it?” She demanded, hands on hips.

“Earlier this morning, Morgan was overheard telling Prudence that she wanted to turn her into a newt.”

Fiona wrinkled her brow. “So?”

“Prudence was found with a newt stuffed in her throat. She’d been strangled.” He turned to face Morgan. “Where were you two hours ago?”

The girls exchanged glances and Fiona looked at her watch. Two hours ago was about when she was waiting for Morgan to come back with her coffee.

“I was walking here from the coffee shop,” Morgan said. “And I didn’t say I wanted to turn her into a newt, I said if I was a witch I would have already turned her into a newt.”

“Close enough for me,” Sheriff Overton said. “Did anyone see you walking here?”

“Surely, you can’t be serious?” Morgan stared at him incredulously. “That’s just the kind of thing you say when someone pisses you off. You can’t seriously think I actually killed her over a small argument in a coffee shop?”

“That remains to be seen.” Overton nodded at the officers. “Cuff her and get her into the car.” He switched the toothpick from one side of his mouth to the other, then snickered at Fiona before turning and walking out of the shop.

Fiona stared at his retreating back, trying to get her mouth to work. She whirled around at the sound of snapping handcuffs, planting herself firmly in between the officers and the door.

“You can’t just arrest her like this. You need more solid evidence!” She glared at the two men.

Brody looked down at the floor.

“That’s right Brody Hunter, you should be ashamed of yourself.” She turned her steely blue gaze on the other officer.

“And you, whoever you are. How dare you come to our town and arrest my sister on this flimsy evidence. I’ll have you brought up under charges of false arrest!”

Fiona was standing close to him; his height forced her to tilt her head backwards to look up into his face. She saw his gray eyes soften a little before he gently moved her aside.

“Sorry Ma’am,” he dipped his head at her, “Just doing my job.” Then he brushed past her, tugging Morgan along behind him.
