TREBLE AT THE JAM FEST is the fourth book in the Food Lovers’ Village series by Leslie Budewitz. Although this is the first book I’m reading in this particular series, I have read other books by Budewitz before. I worried that I might feel a little bit lost jumping into this one. While I think the mystery stands alone really well, I found that I didn’t connect with Erin’s character as much as I hoped to.
The book starts off a little bit slow and because I felt like I didn’t know Erin well and there’s so much interaction between Erin and the other folks, the book took a while for me to warm up to. I don’t normally have this issue with the other books I’ve read by this author so I think it could’ve been my fault for not reading in order so at this moment, Erin isn’t my favorite sleuth right now. I’m sure that will change as I continue to read more of the series.
I was really interested in this series because it takes music and food together and mashes them together. I wasn’t sure how it was going to work in the beginning, but it actually had a really fun, laid-back feel to it that makes it very enjoyable. I almost want to compare it to a summer concert or a family barbeque. It’s definitely a good fit for this time of the year.
So while TREBLE AT THE JAM FEST isn’t my favorite book by Budewitz, I am looking forward to reading more from this series.
