Review - If Errands Could Kill by Jim Bronyaur

So here’s the next indie review. If Errands Could Kill by Jim Bronyaur

It’s a self published kindle book and I was a little sceptical at first but ended up thoroughly enjoying it. (And I've since found out it's also available in paperback).

There are a few typos but don’t let that put you off. It’s well written, perfectly paced, and an extremely warm and fun book to read. The family life of the protagonist is rather “ideal” in an Enid Blyton sort of way but this works as advantage because you genuinely enjoy being a fly on the wall in the household. Reading about a happy marriage, well brought up kids, it’s a nice world to be entering. (We can’t be fascinated with the dark, messed up lives of others all the time now, can we?)

And then there’s the non-offensive murder mystery which keeps you turning the pages as any book in this genre should. Especially when the action hits in at the end. Back to Enid Blyton though, I actually think this would serve rather well as a kids book.

So whether you’re young or old, if it’s light reading for your kindle that you’re seeking then look no further.
