I was really excited to see the 4th Food Blogger mystery on NetGalley and requested in right away. I love this series about Hope and her blog, Hope at Home. This time winter has socked in with plenty of snow giving that sense of isolation to the town. An old friend of Hope’s has returned home determined to finally solve the disappearance of her mother. There are plenty of people in town who would just rather that “all that unpleasantness” be left to rest. When a new murder occurs, Hope knows there is a connection and sets out to find out what happened all those years ago.
The Corpse Who Knew Too Much is a great installment in the series. I loved the introduction of the true crime podcasting, it gives a very modern vibe to the cozy. This is a cozy that manages to maintain the traditional feel with characters you want to befriend, the warmth and small town appeal, and yet also brings in the modern world. Good mystery plot and a variety of characters and possible villains to choose from in the investigation. Great read for cozy fans!
For Letter or Worse is the second in the Stationery Shop Mystery series. The theme and the setting of this series are both just amazing. I love stationery and the locale of Tundish, Montana stands out. Even the idea of the store being located in a repurposed jail building is unique and adds to the sense of place. The store owners are called on to host a craft table for a wealthy woman’s birthday celebration which ends abruptly with a murder. After events in the first book, Delta is no stranger to being in the middle of an investigation and she seems to be pulled into this one as well. Fine cozy mystery.
