Is a mediocre cozy murder mystery that doesn t know where t s headed until 23 of the way through The first third of the book focuses too much on renovating the McMurphy The reason for the murder and subseuent mystery doesn t even appear until halfway and even then The Seventh Day it s unclear what the motives There are some awkward attempts at romance an out of place new heroine and plot and some mprobable situations The whole mystery seemed mprobable to me but I did a little looking around online and I suppose The Devils Jug, the Crying Tree Me it MAY be plausible butt doesn t sound like Ramesses it should be possible The motivation doesn t make much sensen the grand scheme of things and certain events that are not connected make the plot complicated than The Irish Warrior it needed to be The fudge recipes are mostly for Allie s 21 line andt s not until towards the end of the book that normal classic fudge recipes appear Shouldn t Baby, Im Back! (Return to Redemption, it be the other way around I was very disappointed that I didn t see anything I had to try until long after the halfway point Plusf she s a culinary school graduate she would know that there s not enough alcohol n a small piece of fudge to get anyone drunk but she probably can t sell t to kids The characters are also unappealing Allie The Draining Lake (Inspector Erlendur is stubborn to a fault Whonsists on staying home when the police tell you there may be a crazed murderer running around somewhere Allie does She s rude and blinded solely by her goal of opening the McMurphy Mers in time She does have compassion for the victim s family whichs her only saving grace That and the fact that she doesn t A Heros Welcome insist onnvestigating on her own to clear her name The police and her friends urge her to Finding Normal investigate the hotel s secrets Neither of the potential loventerests were any better Rex Die Germanen is an arrogant alpha male jerk and Trents a sullen arrogant jerk The townspeople are narrow minded and rude Being friendly works both ways and Allie s Papa was The Broken Sword involvedn the community even Haunted Houses if her Dad left The townspeople take sides either for or against Allie being a murderer and show their support for their chosen one by wearing different colored ribbons I think this author has been watching Gil Girls reruns because no one does thatn real life The situation Charles Dickens in Stars Hollow was completely differentThe best main characters Allie s new puppy Mal short for Marshmallow half Poodle half Bichon I don t know how anyone expects a toy breed to be menacing enough to protect Allie but she s super cute and plays a big role at the end I also really liked Allie s friend Jen She s fun and has great Christianity at the Crossroads ideas though where she gets the money to pull off what she did and how she didt The Romanovs in such a short amount of times a mystery I also liked Frances though she seems a little reckless at times for an old lady and Mr Devaney I always love historians of course Their budding relationship Cravings is sweet and better than the central potential romance The excerpt for the second bookn the series sounded The Wedding Date intriguing so I may give the series another chancef I can get that book and see f t Learn Better improves From what I read of the summary of all the booksn the series Harbor Me it doesn t sound liket but we ll see This one was a lot of fun The characters were great and the puppy n t charmed me through and through There s lots of well placed humor to go with shocking twists and turns All Processing Pain in Play in all highly recommended.
