50% off was like a breath of fresh air and it reminded me why I love cozy mysteries so much. They are often so nice and manage to make me smile.
I loved reading about Maggie, the heroine of the book, and her group of friends. She is a woman who knows who she is, she has a daughter in college and she is enjoying her life. The town in which the story is set is charming and the murder investigation was very interesting. Maggie is a great amateur sleuth. 


Maggie and her friends all belong to the Good Buy Girls, they are a group of bargain hunters and some of their missions made me laugh out loud. They plan getting the best deals like it's a military operation. The group is very supportive and there for each other in times of trouble, I loved that.


I also enjoyed that there is a possible romance for Maggie. An old friend has returned to town and Maggie is still having feelings for him. I also enjoyed that the future seems to have other exciting things in store for her. 


"50% off murder" has made me excited for more books in the series, I haven't found any info on when book #2 will be out, but I hope it will be soon. I want more of this series because the book made me smile a lot, the characters touched my heart and I want to become further acquainted with them.

  4. Cozy mystery with discount shoppers? Sounds really cute. I like the idea of a shoppers club - friends on the lookout for good deals.

    1. It was very funny to read when they were on one of their "missions". And I always love reading about a great group of friends.
