At Wick's End (Candlemaking Mysteries, No. 1)

At Wicks End - Tim Myers Cozy mystery type of novel. This is the opening novel in Myers' "Candle shop mysteries". Harrison Black inherit from his great aunt Belle's her candle shop and building which houses a few other small businesses and offices. Harrison dives right into his new life and becomes suspicious of the details of his great aunt's death. A array of colorful yet not really multi dimensional characters fill the space. Despite an ex-girlfriend and another woman flirting with Harrison, I don't buy that he's all that "straight" anyway. Average plot, average secondary characters, a lead that is okay. I have the other three novels in that series so I'll see if it improves.
