Book Review – The Skinny on the Jinni

Good morning, fellow readers! And a Happy 4th of July to all those celebrating today.

I have a fun new cozy to share with you – let’s get into it.

  • Title: The Skinny on the Jinni
  • Author: Gloria Lesher
  • Series: Paranormal Case Files
  • Genre: Paranormal Mystery/ Cozy Mystery
  • ISBN: 978-1736775318

Blythe Golightly is a retired professor with an interest in all things paranormal. When her friend, Poppy, reaches out because her granddaughter has been kidnapped by the girl’s Saudi Arabian father, Blythe jumps into action to get her back.

But after the girl is recovered, Blythe finds herself facing off against not only the girl’s father, but a Jinni he sent to control the girl. And when someone winds up dead, everyone will be a suspect.

I really enjoyed the premise of this book. This is the first paranormal cozy I’ve read with a Jinn. It was very unique.

This is also a classic whodunnit – everyone has a motive for murder. Blythe can’t even trust that she didn’t commit the murder. I enjoyed trying to figure out who actually did it.

I do wish that Gloria Lesher had included more background information on Jinn. Blythe is a paranormal researcher- it would have been nice to have had more of her research included in the story.

Overall, The Skinny on the Jinni is a unique and enjoyable cozy mystery. I will definitely check out the next book in the series, In a Black Monk Funk.
