It checks off all the boxes- small town, the sleuth is not a PI or police officer, lots of characters to choose from for the murdere, and thi love interest for the sleuth.

Plus mom is hoping he will pop the question sooner rather than later.As it happens with most first books in a cozy series, the main villai is a murdere in whatever murder has taken place and has to investigate who might e true culprit.
