    Story
    "They tried to tell me"

    I read some of the reviews for this book and I thought they were being harsh. I should have know when our heroine stole the catering contact of her rival. These people are so immature and petty I don't know how anyone could stand them. And if there is one thing I kinda hate about some of these books is a woman with a business who constantly closes said business to run all over town searching for clues. How does the business stay afloat if your never there? And then you lie at the drop of a hat but when confronted with actual law and protocol, you call you ADA boyfriend who crosses all over procedures to help you and your equally immature mother. I realize I haven't really reviewed the actual story. All I gotta say is don't bother. It's too convoluted and silly it will insult your intelligence. I love food related mysteries. I just hope later outings were better than this.

    Story
    "Sweet Mystery for Stephanie Plumb Fans"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Buttercream Bump Off to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version of this book, or any print version of the author's other books, but I did love this audio book so much. The narrator is wonderful and does an excellent job. It is a fun listen, and you could do so all at one time.


    What other book might you compare Buttercream Bump Off to and why?

    The Stephanie Plum series for sure. Same steamy storylines (to a point), a couple of curse words here or there, romance, a little snark, a little kooky. Just right.


    What about Susan Boyce’s performance did you like?

    I loved her ability to make you love the characters and the way she transitioned between them. She also did not do a terrible Southern accent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sweet Treat, Deadly Treats


    Any additional comments?

    One thing that bothers me is this... who is watching the store? How are they making money?

    "Doesn't belong in mystery/thriller category"

    I expect cozy mysteries to be written for an adult audience. I think maybe adolescent girls could enjoy this, but when your dialogue includes jokes that 10-year-olds might make up, plus reviews of the contents of the cupcake store pantry and refrigerator, well, it lost my interest right from the start. Plus, Scottsdale AZ is kind of a party town. and these folks were just not believable residents. I skipped to the end to see if it might have developed into anything, but no, it just never got there. I do wish Audible would do a better job of screening their offers.

    "Don't Waste Your Time "

    I am finished with this series. There are several things that prevented me from finishing this book. The characters are annoying and immature in their personal relationships, which takes up too much of the story. The idea that a woman over 50, Melanie's mother, would think that her dress was capable of killing someone is absurd. Jenn McKinley is trying to hard to make this a funny and light cozy mystery by introducing silly and immature characters. I enjoy cozy mysteries that includes well developed and realistic characters who get involved in a mystery. Not characters that I would have avoided in middle school.
