Review of The Day Job Is Murder, McKinley Mysteries #1

The Day Job is Murder Review:

The Day Job is Murder is a novella setting up the McKinley Mysteries series. Sarah is dealing with the case mostly on her own, while Sean is pining and grieving.  Sean is proudly old school, perfect if you like the chivalrous type. Sarah is a classic-type lady who happens to wear pants and solve crimes.

I can see them being like Castle and Beckett, except they hit the lottery and bounce out the department. If you’re looking for that push-pull banter, there isn’t much here since it’s so short. Skipping to the second installment when they’re honeymoon is easy, and preferable if you liked Castle once they got together.

McKinley Mysteries series is perfect if you like clean cut characters, a sweetheart romance, having the money to follow your dreams, and crime-solving abilities.  All the installments are on the short side, perfect for brief escapes and bingeing the series.
