"Wacky and delightful characters...sure to please the palate of any cozy fan." (Publishers Weekly)
I am a librarian working as a state worker by day and a FB stalker at night. I like thrillers, YA and, and just about anything in between.
Cute, fun, and yummy
This story did keep me on the edge of my seat as much as a cozy mystery could. It was slightly predictable, but the reasons were not.
I liked Hannah as always. Hannah and her sister.
I was a little upset at Mike and how he treated Hannah in this book. He was gruff and a little possessive it seemed.
This was not my favorite in the series at all. It was cute and fun, but not the best. There were a couple of things I could just not forgive. I would elaborate, but it would ruin a few plotlines. Overall though, a fun quick read!
Love the development of each character in the series. The acting is wonderful with each character clearly different in sound and personality through out the book and the series. It is hard to stop listening. And I feel a part of their community. I wonder if Hannah will be able to choose from her two suiters. I like them both for her. Can't wait to start the next story.
It is a nice simple story that one fit between heavier stories.
Like that this one was a closed environment.
Has it's funny points
This author is one that I use when I just want a little light reading. The character are a lot of fun as they develop. Having grown up in that area, I can relate to many parts of the book. Try the recipies!!! When I worked as a bookseller and talked about this book to my customers, very often they would talk about the excellent results they had while using the recipies. There sleuthing is very simple, and usually solve the case in the first half of the book, but the surrounding story keep the book moving along to the end.
Everything from the reader to the plot was excellent. I found excuses to listen to this book at work and home when I should have been doing other things. I am already a big fan of Fluke and Toren did an excellent job!
