As I sit down at the computer to write this review, I really am not sure about my thoughts. While I do enjoy aspects of the book, I just don’t know if it’s a good fit with my reading style.
Lorna Barrett’s writing style is unique because she has quite a large cast of characters and therefore, I think if you’re just trying to dip your toes into this series, it might be hard. Since I haven’t read too many of the other books in this series, I feel like that might be why I feel a little indifferent to it.
The funny thing is, I don’t have this issue with other Cozy Mystery series that I jump into. Even without having read any of the prior books, I don’t have an issue with falling in line and enjoying the book. Since each book has a conclusion, I didn’t think it would be a problem. But even after reading a few books from this series, that real connection is missing for me.
I think I may have to come back to this series after having read a few of the earlier titles. But if you’re a fan of Jenn McKinlay’s Library Lover’s Mystery series, I think you’ll probably enjoy this one too. They definitely have a similar feel to them.

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!
