Light-hearted, fun and pretty good New Age mystery – that would sum up Dial Om for Murder by Diana Killian pretty well. It’s not really “The best a cozy can be”, as ReviewingTheEvidence.com says. But it’s way better than the average.
Maybe part of my problem is the fairly lame attempt at including at the end of the book a not-so-great description of the yoga pose Sun Salutation, and a recipe for salmon – so they can say on the cover ‘includes yoga facts and organic recipes’.
The mystery itself is fun, lots of unusual characters, who have managed to get all tangled up with each other. Then again, being murdered by a koala ice sculpture is pretty unique, too. The lives of the real detective, and the yoga teacher detective are pretty tangled up as well.
So it’s a fun book. Just the lame stuff at the end threw me off.
