    Deceased and Desist by Misty Simon is the third book of the cozy A Tallie Graver Mystery series. Each book in the series features it’s own mystery to be solved so they can be read and understood as a standalone. Of course though there are details to the story that carries over book to book so it’s always best to enjoy the series from the beginning.

Each book in the series features it’s own mystery to be solved so they can be read and understood as a standalone. Of course though there are details to the story that carries over book to book so it’s always best to enjoy the series from the beginning. Tallie Graver had married her rich ex-husband as a way out of working in her family’s business, the Graver Funeral Home. However, now that Tallie is divorced she has had to return to the family business but also took on a side job of cleaning homes to help gain her independence. As Tallie is up on a ladder cleaning windows at a soon to be opening bed and breakfast she sees a man lying in bed in one of the rooms. Tallie hopes she doesn’t disturb the man until she notices his eyes are open and there’s something not quite right with his neck. Being in the funeral business Tallie knows a dead body when she sees one but after calling the police Tallie finds the new chief isn’t onboard with calling this a murder so Tallie decides to begin investigating herself. Being the third book of this cozy mystery series one might guess that if I’m still reading them that this is one that I do enjoy which is true. Deceased and Desist was another solid mystery to add to the series with plenty of secrets and suspects for Tallie to uncover. I’ve liked Tallie from the beginning but it’s good to see her learning from her mistakes and growing into her sleuthing role with each read. Looking forward to seeing what happens next in the series. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley. For more reviews please visit https://carriesbookreviews.com/

    I loved it! I don't know if there is anything more to mention other than this was a great start to a new series. I enjoyed the characters, the conversational flow of the writing and the novel story-line. Tallie Graver was a well-to-do housewife who finds herself in the cleaning business after a nasty divorce. She doesn’t let that get her down, however. She maintains her joie de vivre and gets on with life. Unfortunately, she spies a lifeless body through the window of a B&B she is cleaning. I loved it!

    Short Review: This book seemed smaller than the previous two but I still enjoyed reading it and following Tallie as she cracked a new case! While I wish there was a bit more buildup in the beginning (everything happened so fast) this is an enjoyable cozy mystery with a cute cast of characters. I will certainly be looking for the next one when it's released.

    Tallie Graver is tired of dead bodies. Whether they are being buried by her families funeral home, or Tallie has found one, she is just tired of dead bodies. With the launch of her new cleaning business, Tallie is doing what she loves best, cleaning the windows for the grand re-opening of the local b & b.

As she wipes the window to finish off, she spots someone through the window, and is sure he is dead. Why is someone in the b & b in the first place? How did they get in without the owner knowing? Surely this is some kind of mistake. As Tallie asks questions, local law enforcement becomes agitated, leaving Tallie to turn to her friends for help. I really enjoy this series. Tallie is a fun character and I have enjoyed getting to know her. I am looking forward to reading more in this series. I volunteered to read and review an ARC of this book offered by the publisher and NetGalley.

As she’s cleaning that last streak, she realizes there is someone looking back at her. No reason to be embarrassed about earning a peeping-tom status, though, because Tallie soon realizes those eyes belong to a dead man. The interim police chief says it was a heart attack, but does a heart attack cause the victim’s head to turn almost all the way around? Tallie knows what she saw and is determined not to let the interim-chief’s shoddy work ethic brush a murder under the rug, so she begins to investigate, even though no one in town believes her. I so enjoy this series. Tallie is likeable and easy to relate to. Her family loves her but that doesn’t stop them from rolling their eyes when she lands in yet another murder mystery. Her best friend, Gina, is her partner in crime and is thrilled to be along for the ride during this mystery investigation. The book is well-written and humorous. The end comes to a good conclusion but still leaves you wanting more of the series. I can’t wait to read the next installment! I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher.

    Tallie is busy getting her cleaning business running smoothly, if only she would stop finding dead bodies. This time she finds one in the window of the room she is cleaning. But the bodies and secrets don't stop there. The bodies pile higher as the secrets grow deeper and Tallie has to figure it all out before she becomes part of the body count herself. I was given an eARC by the publisher through NetGalley.

Tallie is one of the most relatable new mystery characters I've read. She is independent, smart, complex and is a person you'd love to have as a best friend! Tallie's friends and family are quirky and lovable - the relationship with her parents and brother is funny and touching, her best friend Gina is sweet but tough and the handsome Max Bennett along with the aloof feline Mr. Fleefers adds a little romance and fun to the series! As always, waiting for the next visit with Tallie! I received an ARC and gave an honest review of the book.

    This series has really hit its stride and gets more and more enjoyable. This latest installment finds the main character stumbling into a murder once again. With new characters, and a partnering between two characters that are usually at odds makes for a story that you cannot put down. Everything flowed so nicely throughout, every chapter just leading you deeper and deeper into the story. With just enough humor to keep things light, this was a well thought out story that will not disappoint.

    Tallie Graver left behind the rich life when she divorced her ass of a husband. She started her own cleaning business. I have been reading a lot of thrillers lately and it was a nice change of pace to read a cozy mystery. Tallie is someone who you would want to be friends with, and she has the bad habit of finding dead bodies so you would get to help solve mysteries. Such a enjoyable series!

    Poor Tallie, she can't get away from dead bodies. It's one thing to have to keep fending off her father's pleas to have her join the family undertaking business, working for both her father and her brother but Tallie is a dead body magnet all over town. In this, the third mystery, she finds a body when she is happily washing the upstairs windows of a local B&B. Her cleaning business is just getting started and the last thing she needs is to land in another murder investigation. How does she Poor Tallie, she can't get away from dead bodies. It's one thing to have to keep fending off her father's pleas to have her join the family undertaking business, working for both her father and her brother but Tallie is a dead body magnet all over town. In this, the third mystery, she finds a body when she is happily washing the upstairs windows of a local B&B. Her cleaning business is just getting started and the last thing she needs is to land in another murder investigation. How does she know that the man lying "peacefully" on the bed is not simply taking an afternoon nap? Like, what's wrong with this picture, she thinks. She realizes that she shouldn't be able to see both his back and his face at the same time. The man staring back at her has had his neck broken. Just as this occurs to her, the ladder she is perched upon goes down for the count taking her with it. Lucky to land on soft mushy ground, her statement that there is a dead man upstairs falls on deaf ears. Silly woman, he just had a heart attack in his sleep. End of story, case closed. Not so fast, especially when another body turns up. The killer never should have pissed her off. It just made her bound and determined to prove that it was premeditated murder. In the previous cases, Tallie was at odds with Burton, the police chief but, surprise, this time he is out on sick leave and he asks her to be his eyes and ears on the investigation as he doesn't trust his temporary replacement. Tallie accepts the challenge and gets way more than she bargained for. As well as unmasking the killer, she didn't expect to end up caring for a very big, but very sweet, dog. This mystery can be read as a stand alone but, to get the most out of Tallie's backstory, by all means, read them in order. My thanks to the publisher, Kensington and to NetGalley for giving me an advance copy in exchange for my honest review.

    A thoroughly fascinating read! This was the third installment in the series; however, it was the first that I have read. The details were woven into the book quite nicely. I was able to keep up with who was who and everyone's story. I must say, Tallie was an incredibly likable character. It was fun to surf through her inner thoughts and bear witness to her hijinx.

I found her to be a very genuine character. Plus, she is just plain old funny! I especially loved her relationship with her best friend Gina and Gina's mom. They are a fun trio. I also enjoyed her interactions with Burton. Burton is the chief of police. However, in this installment, he is on medical leave. Because of this, there is an acting interim chief by the name of Hammond. As I said before, I haven't read the previous books, but it is quite clear that Burton and Tallie's relationship can be contentious at times. In this installment, their interactions are quite different than they have been in the past. I actually found them to be a quite hilarious pair. I enjoyed the fact that Tallie is not certain about her future yet. I found that to be an authentic detail. Not many people are sure about what the future holds. It is nice to see that reflected onto the pages. That being said, she does not come across as indecisive. The mystery was fantastic! Ms. Simon certainly knows how to keep readers on their toes! I almost got whiplash from all of the plot twists. The way Tallie went about looking into things seemed very natural. There weren't any parts that I found unrealistic of goofy. If you haven't read any of Tallie's adventures yet, what are you waiting for? I received a free copy of this book. I am voluntarily leaving a review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.

I’ve followed this series from the very beginning and I have to say that it’s gotten so much better with every installment! From the writing to the characters, this series has really improved overall. I liked the first book, but it had many flaws. And the second book was much better, but still had some flaws for me. This one was amazing! I literally have nothing bad to say. I enjoyed every word of it. The characters have all really grown on me, and I find them all delightfully amusing, and very interesting. Every single recurring character has grown in some shape or form, which I really enjoyed. I love Tallie! I think she’s a wonderful main character—very smart and spunky. I love her character voice, and I could definitely see myself in her. She’s very relatable. The mystery itself was really fun. It was plotted very well, and it really captured my attention. It hooked me in from the beginning and kept me reading until the end. It was a very unpredictable and bumpy ride, but I loved every second of it. Overall, a great addition to a wonderful series! I can’t wait to read the next installment. ** I received an ARC via the publisher in exchange for my honest review **

H I received a free copy of DECEASED AND DESIST (Book 3 of the Tallie Graver Mysteries) in exchange for an honest review. Tallie Graver has a house-cleaning business and works part-time for her father’s funeral home. Tallie has a bad habit of finding bodies and getting involved in solving the murders; everyone in town makes sure she knows of their disapproval and takes the time to suggest alternative hobbies. When she finds a body with the head twisted around the wrong way, she calls the police. Her usual nemesis, the police chief, is on leave for injuries sustained on the job; his temporary replacement is extremely hostile and threatening. Then, the new nemesis forces Tallie into investigating when he insists the death was natural causes. When Tallie begins to look at possible motives, she finds out the deceased was a very bad man, and it would be easier to figure out who didn’t have a motive to kill him. Who did the deed, and why is the temporary police chief so insistent on refusing to investigate the death? If you’re a fan of the Tallie Graver series, you’ll probably enjoy this book. I haven’t read either of the prior novels, which may have caused me to lack sympathy for the characters. So, I’d suggest beginning at the series beginning if you’re interested in giving this book a try. #DeceasedAndDesist #NetGalley
