Finished this cozy mystery out in the yard this afternoon. I found this book cleaning out my bedroom and I swore that I had read this but the plot was not familiar. I think I must have read a later one in the series. Anyway, this one was a well written cozy with a great mystery and oodles of red herrings. There were lots of clues pointing all over the place.
Loved the character of Sophie and I’m sure that as the series progresses her character will develop more depth. The cast of characters had the prerequisite amount of quirkiness, but nothing too over the top as to be ridiculous. I liked that there was more than one love interest, but it didn’t turn into a triangle.
There could have been a little less emphasis on all the cooking and feeding the guests, but it was not so much that it distracted me from the mystery. I also loved Judy’s love story with The Colonel. I think it is great when an author shows an older person as a whole person interested in dating and still going out rather than just a stereotypical “grandma” type figure.
Very cute cozy and a fun read. I look forward to reading more in this series.
