It took me a while to read the first book in this series. I had to put it down after the first few chapters. But when I came back to it months later I was able to finish it. Now a couple of years later I gave the second book a try. I won't buy the third. This book is too wordy. Cleo spends too much time describing the scenery and enough on the mystery. The lead character Claire, is annoying. The idea of joining a dating service to screen men for her daughter is ridiculous. She needs to get a life and let her have her own. Claire then goes on to find an attractive man who may or not be a murderer but that doesn't stop her from going out with him. She then proceeds to interrogate him and search his house. If she thought the man was dangerous why go to his house? If she didn't think he was dangerous why interrogate him and search his place? Also, why did he allow himself to be interrogated? That entire scene was unrealistic. Speaking of unrealistic, I can go on and on about the relationship with her ex husband. But I won't because that would be a bit like Cleo Coyle and her descriptions of New York. Needless to say that the ex husband adds unnecessary drama and silliness. The characters in this story are flat and I can't find a reason to care about what happens to them. This series is not for me and I won't be buying anymore of it.
I was surprised that this book was so good. The world that Stephanie Nelson created was unique and believable. The characters were well developed and realistic. The pace was fast and engaging. I haven't liked a new series this much in a while. I highly recommend this book.
I passed this book up several times before finally giving it a chance. I'm glad I decided to listen to it. It was very entertaining. The characters were realistic and intersting. The plot was believable and nicely paced. This was an enjoyable book and I will buy the next in the series.
I enjoy this series for what it is: a light cozy mystery with recipes. However, the recipes are not included in this version. I had to buy the Kindle version after I already bought the audiobook version. I was very upset. However, the book was good and I enjoyed reading about Katie and her friends solving another murder while creating delicious treats.
This is a very entertaining book with a complex storyline. But, Harrison handles it well and you never get lost or bored. Rachel is at her best with the help of her friends. There is a lot of action and character development. This is one of the best examples of an urban fantasy series.
This book is fast paced and full of action. Atticus, Granuaile and Oberon literally run acroos Europe in order to survive their latest antics. The plot is darker and sadder than previous books. There is a lot of growth and development with the characters. I look forward to the next book.
This series is awesome. I love Atticus and Granuaile together. They make a good pair and I look forward to seeing them work together in the future books. Oberon holds his own and brings lots of humor. This is a must read series.
This wasn't as good as the others but it was okay. I found myself skipping forward a couple of times. I hope the next book in the series is more interesting.
This is a great series. As always, Mercy is on top of her game. She handles everything with her usual aplomb and snarky attitude. The ending was a bit abrupt. I had hoped to see Adam stick up for Mercy to Christie. Other than that I had no complaints. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
This is a quick read with a well written and well plotted story line. The main characters are easy to like and very realistic. The mystery is interesting and fast paced. As for the cats, they might be growing on me. Owen and Hercules add lots of humor to the story. I enjoyed listening to this and will listen to the next book if Audible acquires it.
This was the best book so far in the series. The characters are developing realistically and the storyline is fresh and crisp. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries.
