A Secondhand Murder...DNF

About the book:
Spunky and outspoken Eve Appel moves from Connecticut to rural Florida intent on starting a new life, free of drama, and more importantly, her soon-to-be ex-husband. The rural Florida town of Sabal Bay, situated only an hour from West Palm, proves to be the perfect spot for her consignment store. Thanks to the recent economic downturn, Florida’s society matrons need a place to discreetly sell their stuff and pick up expensive-looking bargains. But Eve’s life, and her business with it, is turned upside down when a wealthy customer is found stabbed to death in a fitting room. As accusations fly and business slows, Eve decides to take things into her own hands. With the help of an unlikely bunch of friends—including her estranged ex, her best friend, a handsome private eye, and a charming mafia don—she struggles to find answers and save lives. Through a maze of distorted half-truths, dramatic cover-ups, and unrequited passions, Eve learns just how far the wealthy will go to regain what they have lost. A Secondhand Murder is Book 1 of the Eve Appel Mysteries Series.

This book has been in my TBR pile for far too long.  I missed the original posting date and I apologize for that.  I have tried several times to read this and it's just not one I'm connecting with.  I just didn't love the main character, which is a bummer because I do like cozy mysteries.  Most of the reviews I've seen for this book, however, have been well received and positive and you can see some at WV Stitcher, Celtic Lady's Reviews, Hezzi-D's Books and Cooks, and Community Bookshop.
