Invisible: An Ivy Malone Mystery #1
By Lorena McCourtney
Invisible by Lorena McCourtney follows our possum grey haired heroine through various situations. Ivy Malone attempts to solve what started out as a simple vandalism mystery that turns out to big much bigger crimes. Ivy is a LOL (Little Old Lady) with more than a touch of curiosity and humor. She also had a tendency to get herself into scrapes.
When Ivy realizes that she is often overlooked to the point of feeling invisible, she decides that may not always be a bad thing. Invisibility is a boon when making observations and getting into places unnoticed. I loved this character. Ivy is one smart lady, but she does not take herself too seriously.
This is an inspirational cozy and the main character’s Christianity flows naturally. Ivy has some encouraging and comforting advise about life in various parts of the story that fit with the character and situation.
If you are looking for a light summer mystery with doses of Christian encouragement occurring throughout, Invisible: An Ivy Malone Mystery #1 may be one for you.
Invisible is one of my favorite inspirational cozy mysteries. I snagged this one as a free kindle copy a while back and liked it enough to buy the next two books in the series.
A new book in the Ivy Malone series, Go Ivy, Go! An Ivy Malone Mystery #5 was released on May 27th, 2015. It is available for kindle and nook.

I do need a light reading after reading this Grisham novel. I’ll remember to grab a copy of this. 🙂
Oh, yes. Sometimes a light read is what we need. 🙂
This sounds like a great choice for light reading! I’m usually buried in review books/notes/journal articles, so this would be a welcomed break! :]
