But with the aid of her dog, and her writer's group, Chloe may just be able to solve Hope Fall's first homicide and impress the new chief of police.

Any pleasure that I might have derived from this brief story was overshadowed by the numerous errors in punctuation, grammar, spelling, etc. Those who choose to self-publish owe it to their readers to employ an editor. The greatest mystery seems to be Chloe's height: on the first page of Chapter 1, we're told that she is five foot one; in Chapter 2, Chloe tells us that she is five foot two. The blurb on the back cover states that she is 5 foot nothing. Had a good editor reviewed the text, these discrepancies might have been detected.

Moving Violation, a cozy mystery by Melanie Jackson, is the first of 22 books in her Chloe Boston Mystery series. Chloe has wanted to be a police officer since childhood, partially because her father was the police chief — but mostly due to her crush on Adam-12 star Kent McCord.

More recently, Chloe has specifically wanted to be a detective, but her inability to lift 100 pounds means that she will have to settle for being a traffic and parking enforcement officer (aka meter maid). As you will see, when you READ THE BOOK, she is a better detective than the department's actual detectives!

A few of the main characters are Chloe, of course; the new police chief, Randy Wallace; Alex Lincoln, new in town, with Paul Newman eyes; and Chloe's co-worker in parking enforcement, Jef­frey Lit­tle. These people are all well-written, so that I feel I really know them, and like them. The secondary characters are believable, and likable for the most part (except for a few that are Chloe's nemeses).

The scenes when Chloe meets Chief Wallace, and when she encounters Alex, are some of my favorites — really hilarious! You will enjoy them, when you (say it with me) READ THE BOOK!

Author Melanie Jackson wrote some very humorous passages for her characters, especially Chloe, since she is the narrator of the book. Moving Violation is a great read! There are several mysteries to be solved, which Chloe does quite well. (The chief's reaction to her solving the crimes is great!) I look forward to getting to know the main characters better, in the books to come. This is the first Chloe Boston book that I've read, and I'm eager to read the other 21 in the series!

I really enjoyed reading Moving Violation by Melanie Jackson, and award it Four Stars out of five! I recommend it to all Cozy Mystery fans.

When I'm one third thru the book and nothing has happened except for a catalog of routine days it's time to call it quits. The main character Chloe Boston seems like a bumbling child and I somehow doubt that she turns into the super sleuth a mystery would require and not interesting enough for me to stick around and find out.

Chloe Boston is a meter maid who has dreams of becoming a detective someday. When a wealthy citizen is killed, the police scramble for clues to discover why. Chloe's partner, Jeffrey, disappears one night and the only one concerned is Chloe. And a foundation seems to have been robbed of about $60,000 - so was it robbery or a payoff? Since she's a meter maid, she's not allowed to investigate officially but she starts her own investigation with help from members of the Lil Wit group. Chloe sees things that get filed in her brain and soon the pieces start falling in place while her budding relationship with Alex seems to be heading toward rough waters. So what does Chloe do? What any 100 pound, only female member of the police department do, she fights back and makes them eat their words. Read the book for all the hilarious antics of Chloe and her merry band of friends as well as her dog Blue! You'll love it. 5 Stars.

3.5 stars Fun novella
This stand-alone is easy to follow. No editing errors, graphic violence or drag-you-down drama.

Entertaining story of a petite, 98lb, woman who wants to be a detective but can not meet the physical requirement of lifting 100lbs. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Humorous dialogue.

No desire to re-read this story. I always enjoy works by this author.

This is a fun, light read....no, I am lying!!
It is laugh out loud hilarious !!!!! A quirky and feisty character holds up the entire story line!
Well written with the exception of some editing errors. The quirky sketches between chapters was something special

This was simply a delightful book: funny, with endearing characters, well-written, and just plain enjoyable. And (as if another superlative were needed) it had ILLUSTRATIONS! Cute, simple, cartoon illustrations. My inner child was turning cartwheels with joy over a "grown-up" book with illustrations. A quick read and perfect for the "I'm stressed out; I need to read something light and fun and refreshing" sort of day.
I discovered this series soon after buying my Kindle, and within a few weeks I had downloaded every book available.

I love the character Chloe Boston as well as all the minor characters, each is well-developed and interesting. In each book the reader learns a little more about the backstory of both the main character and those around her. Though there are a lot of murders for such a small town, mostly the stories are about life in a small town, thus any reader can easily relate. I particularly enjoy the interactions between family members; let's face it, we all have family and they nearly always drive us crazy, regardless of how much we love them!

Thanks, Melanie!
