P is for Pluto by Jackie Kingon is the third book in the Molly Marbles Mystery series. Molly has received the most exciting news! Her restaurant, Molly’s Bistro, has been chosen by Interplanetary Foods to open a branch on Pluto. Before they can officially open, they have much to do and after the chef they were eyeing is found dead at a wholesale food market, Molly has a new mystery to solve. She has no idea who would want to kill Herb Tarragon, but she won’t stop until she finds the truth and until her restaurant is back on track. With her best friend at her side, she travels to Pluto where together they delve into Herb’s life which leads them on an exciting adventure that introduces them to a complicated mystery with affairs, clones, and food.

Perfect for those looking for something completely original! Jackie Kingon blends the genres of science fiction and cozy mystery for a truly unique adventure that’s humorous, heartfelt, and charming. This world is unlike anything you’ve ever read before as the characters easily travel from one planet to another since everywhere within the galaxy is easily accessible. The journey is told via unique details that derive humor from names, places, and organizations stemmed from puns, often galaxy-related, or have a delightful sound. Science is blended throughout the plot with a few organizations introducing Molly and her family to the Valentine Hatchery and its use of ectogenesis, Socrates Vineyard which derives poison out of poisonous things, and the use of clones and androids. The story has everything that makes for a cozy mystery with a light-hearted plot that’s fun from beginning to end, a suspenseful murder, and delightful characters. P is for Pluto is an ideal read for anyone that enjoys light adventures, humorous stories, charming characters, zany plots, and science fiction.
