Book Review: Booked for Murder by CeeCee James

Maisie Swenson has taken over as manager at a hotel in Florida, partly to take care of her Momma and basset hound, Bingo. One of her first tasks is to make sure the ComicCon booked for that weekend runs smoothly. When a wealthy guest is found floating in the pool dead and other suspicious occurrences happen, it's up to Maisie to find the killer and save her job.
This is a fast and entertaining read. Maisie is a fun heroine. She writes mystery novels on the side but never expects to have to use her expertise to solve a real murder. Momma and the other secondary characters have interesting quirks; I love the pans rattling as Momma cooks. I didn't identify the real murderer which is a prerequisite for me in murder mysteries; I want it to be a mystery and not figure it out halfway through the book.
This is the first book in a cozy murder series, so I'll be looking forward to reading the rest of Maisie's adventures.
