Shakespeare's Landlord by Charlaine Harris
Shakespeare's Landlord (Lily Bard Mysteries, Book 1) (A Lily Bard Mystery)
When cleaning lady Lily Bard discovers the dead body of her nosy landlord, her plan of starting a quiet new life may end in her death.
Shakespeare's Landlord was just okay. Lily had something horrible happen to her and now she tries to just lay low and clean peoples houses and stay out of trouble. When she goes for a late night walk and sees someone dump a body in the park she gets drawn into trying to figure out who did it. Lily is in a great spot to figure things out since she heard lots of gossip but everyone knows she never repeats it.
I enjoyed the main storyline for this book. However there was a lot of back story for each character you met which detracted from the overall story for me. I didn't care so much everyones' life story, but I did like Lily. I liked how she interacted with everyone and how she thought. I am hoping in the next book there will be less back story and more main storyline since we hopefully won't have to meet everyone again.
