Posted by Jennifer in 3 Stars, Blog Tour, Cozy Mystery, Giveaways, Reviews / 4 Comments


After caring for her dying aunt and being dumped by her fiancé, Cassie Miller decides to return to her small hometown in the Berkshires to lick her wounds and live in the house where she was raised. Leaving behind her managerial position in the Boston main postal office, Cassie trades in her tailored suits and high heels for the comfortable blue shirt and red, white, and blue striped scarf of the Postmaster for North Ashcot, Massachusetts.

Everything is business as usual until Cassie arrives at work one day to find that someone has broken into the post office building. The only items stolen: stacks of telephone books. Who steals phone books? Two days later, the body of an unidentified man is found in the woods. And when the handsome antiques dealer she just had lunch with is taken into custody, Cassie is suddenly drawn into the case. With a crime enveloped in mystery, she needs to track the killer—before another victim’s fate is sealed in the dead letter office…

Review of Death Takes Priority

Review (3.5 Stars):  I liked Death Takes Priority and I think that this will be a great series. Cassie was a very interesting character and I loved learning more about the workings of a post office.   Cassie comes to work one day and discovers that someone has broken into the post office and has stolen phone books.  While trying to figure out who would steal phone books, her new friend, Scott, is arrested for a murder that she is sure that he didn’t commit.  Cassie now has to figure out the clues and find a killer before it is too late.

Death Takes Priority is the first book in the new Postmistress mystery series and I think that it will be a good one.  I had trouble at first getting into this mystery but after a bumpy start, the story picked up and took me all the way to the ending.  Death Takes Priority was interesting and entertaining and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.


I’m excited to give away a copy of Death Takes Priority. This giveaway is for US Residents only.  To be entered in the drawing by November 20th, please leave me a comment below:
