COpy from NetGalley in return for an honest review I quite enjoyed this cozy crime novel, the first that I have read in this series, set in a cafe This installment sees the owner s author father in town for a book signing when his agent gets murdered I thought this lost steam a little in the second half, and while I liked the author s honesty about the lead character s nosiness and investigative activity, when the plot started to drag a little that too stupid to live ness started to grate on me [...]

A little vanilla compared to the others in the seriesOn the positive side, the protagonist wasn t nearly as infuriating as in prior books Unfortunately, this book was one of the slower ones in the series For some reason it just wasn t as good as some of the others This one took me longer to get through, it felt predictable and mundane in spots I really do like that the author has made the heroine in a bit likable in this book I hope that he continues to find ways to make her likable future bo [...]
This is a classic cozy complete with an intrepid amateur who owns a fun business and chases down a bad guy in order to clear, in this case, a relative Krissy makes a fine member of the club of women in this genre she s well developed I had not read the earlier books but totally got her and smart Liked her relationship with her dad and with Dolan This is easy quick reading that won t stress you the mystery isn t too twisty Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
I received an electronic copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.A so so cozy mystery Nothing new here Forgettable characters and a yawn worthy plot The novel does follow the formula of a cozy novel, but is so much written to formula as to lack any sense of sincerity on the author s part If you are look for a quick, easy read to simply de stress this novel is fine for that purpose.
I have enjoyed this series from the start and was excited to see Krissy s dad in this story helping her solve the crime It was extremely well written and a delight to visit this series again I felt as though the plot and murder could actually be real, as I can only imagine the world of book publishing.Full Review bibliophileviews book revi
