Poisoned Primrose Dahlia Donovan (2020) Poisoned Primrose (Motts Cold Case Mystery)

Poisoned PrimroseMotts is a 39 year-old asexual, biromantic autistic who is living on her own for the first time in a house left to her by her aunt.

Unfortunately, when digging up the untended garden, remains are discovered, which causes no end of problems for her.

Luckily, she has family and friends to help her learn to cope with both being on her own and being an unwanted center of attention.

“You’ll be fine, Motts.” He reached out to straighten her jacket. “You can always imagine them naked.”

“Why on earth would I do that?” Motts frowned at him in confusion.

It helps you feel less afraid.”

“How?” She thought it would make things worse, if anything. “Nudity tends to amp up the awkward to a maximum.”

I loved so very much about all of this, I mean, a middle-aged ace main character. That’s something I have never ever read before–at least stated as such–an openly talking about her issues.

How is sex motivating? It’s moist. And the sounds are awful. And it takes effort.

She wanted to say no— but saying no was hard. “Okay.”

Also:

“I brought povitica. My mother’s version, with dark chocolate.” He held up a paper-wrapped package and a carrier with two cups. “And coffee.”

“Povitica?”

“A sweet yeast bread with swirls from my native Croatia.

How did she get so many bits that struck home for me?

“I know you can reach the latch with your unnaturally long arms.”

“I’d look rather strange if I had T-rex limbs.”

I immediately bought the second book and and having trouble holding off reading it.
