  • Turns out, it was the middle of a series, so if I find an earlier book, I will try the author again But for me, parts of it was just too over the top silly to appreciate Like her expressions, the woman s mother, her friend s recipes, just too overdone to be truly funny Instead I rolled my eyes.The case was meh, and the characters never quite rose to the task of carrying the plot Was it interesting enough to finish Sure But it s not a recommendation from me.



  • I thought this book was just ok Didn t think it was anything special At times this author reminded me of Janet Evanovich s wisecracking nosy characters but then the plot would falter or the characters would change I think part of the problem is this is the first book of the series I ve read and from reading the other reviews the earlier books were stronger and interesting I think I m going to try at least one of them because of the glimpses of good storytelling I found in this book I didn t hat [...]


  • Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read , But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I d pick it up.4 stars I really enjoyed t [...]


  • If I didn t know better, I d think Mary Daheim and Tamar Myers were the same person sometimes Unless, of course, Stella Maris is a common Catholic Church nameI about fell off my bed laughing when the author had Abby make some crack about authors getting their facts straight because she didn t like to be stopped cold reading Aside from all the continuity errors, there are tons of typos in these books At least this author has proper flora and fauna in her books.I didn t guess who did it and there [...]


  • While clearly I enjoyed this mystery, I didn t like the Deus ex Machina hint foreshadow that was provided in the introduction of a character meant to do just that one thing a walk on part in Holywood terms so to speak I won t say the character s name in question, so as not to create a spoiler, but anyone reading it will know it s so out there, it s off putting.


  • MUCH better than the previous one in this series A Penny Urned It was a little vague on the solution but the plot was well written and the resolution believable It even had a few characters that were scam artists and I had hoped to have one turn the tales on mamma but they didn t.





  • This was another book that is part of a series I ve read some of them, and each one can stand alone Very enjoyable to me because antiques were a part of the plot.
