Murder on the Rocks (Mack's Bar Mystery #1) by Allyson K. Abbott

Murder on the Rocks (Mack's Bar Mystery, #1)Mack's Bar is one of those nice, friendly places where everybody knows your name. That's great when someone's buying you a round, but not so hot when you find yourself atop a list of murder suspects--with your fingerprints on the bloody knife!

Mackenzie "Mack" Dalton is a Milwaukee bar owner with a nose for trouble--literally. A neurological glitch has left her with extra perceptive senses. So when she stumbles upon a dead body in the alley behind the bar--the same spot where her own father was shot eight months earlier--she can tell right away there's something fishy in the air. The lead detective thinks there's a link between the two deaths, and he'll need Mack's help to sniff out the murderer amid the crowd of eccentric regulars. But when all the evidence points to her as the most likely culprit, it could be an early last call for Mack--and celebratory cocktails for a killer.

My review:  Murder on the Rocks (Mack's Bar Mystery #1) by Allyson K. Abbott


The suspense of the book is hard for me to judge because I read the third book of the series In the Drink first.  So while I did not realize who the killer was I knew who was innocent because they were in the third book.  While the books can stand alone I would read them in order so you don't know stuff ahead.

I did enjoy reading Murder on the rocks and next I am going to read Murder with a Twist.  So yes I have liked her writing style.  The plot was interesting.  Mack has a unique talent that I have never heard of before.

Mackenzie Dalton owns a bar and lives above it.  She is single.  Her senses are all mixed up and more sensitive that helps her sometimes.

Mack while taking her own garbage out to the dumpster finds a dead body.  About where her father was killed 8 months before.

 She is a suspect in both murders but others who frequent the bar are too.  A police detective Duncan is undercover at the bar.  He wants to use Mack's talents to help figure out the case.  So he asks her to ask certain questions to her friends at the bar in her office.

The suspects decide that they are going to use a computer program to figure out who the real murder might be to clear there names too.

It is a clean cozy mystery series that is fun, unique and keeps you interested in the characters lives and want to know more about them.

I bought this ebook Murder on the Rocks.
