“Hayley Powell is always a favorite of mine.”
~ Under the Covers

A big snowstorm means a lot of trouble for Hayley Powell. Not only does she have a lot on her plate workwise, but she encounters quite a few financial setbacks that she didn’t anticipate and that really hinders her actions. She asks for the help of her mother, but even she isn’t able to get Hayley out of her financial trouble. So in an effort to save herself, Hayley enters a competition for coupon clipping. Hopefully her money saving techniques will help her win. However, when her competition is found dead in the snow, winning the competition isn’t her only problem now.

This book starts off a little slow but not in the boring way. It’s because the authors need to take their time to showcase Hayley’s problems enough that you can feel her desperation. What I like about this series is the fact that it doesn’t shy away from single mother problems like a lot of other stories do. It’s a tough job and Hayley definitely tries her best, so I did feel a lot of sympathy for her. She’s definitely a character that you want to cheer for, so I think this is a great book to read if you find yourself in a similar situation. It shows that you’re not alone.

Another thing that I enjoy about this series is the creative ways that each murder happens in the books. As I mentioned before, Hayley’s competition, Candace, is found lying face down in the snow with a pair of scissors in her back. Again, these authors take their time to come up with interesting ways that incorporates the theme of the story nicely. Although this is only the third book in the series, I’ve already read a lot of the others and I feel like they consistently come up with unique ideas.

Since this book is set during a snowstorm, I do think it’s a great read for the upcoming colder months. Also, although this series is all about food, this one is different because it doesn’t feature a specific type per se. Again, it’s something refreshingly different and I found it very interesting to read. You guys definitely need to read if you haven’t already. Hayley Powell is always a favorite of mine.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I read the first 2 books and they just weren’t for me. Glad you are enjoying them, though.
