Just be aware...Chris Cavender is another one of Tim Myers' pseudonyms....he also wrote as Elizabeth Bright and Melissa Glazer in addition to several series in his own name. I hope it's enjoyable, but you won't have to worry about me cluttering the WL up...have tried two of his series and they were just....well....you know.         IMO, of course! :)

I've read the Elizabeth Bright series and two of his Tim Myers series, the Ligthouse and the candle making series.  To me they're a quick light read.  The Lighthouse is a small motel not some remote thing on a cliff.  The candle making is a man who ends up taking over a shop from gosh, I think his aunt.  The Elizabeth Bright is a card making theme.  I'll have to check out the pizza. :)

I agree with you Cheryl    they where not my type of books.  I'm just not much of  cozy reader.

Thanks for letting me know that!  He changes his name more than I change genres!  lol  I enjoy his Candlemaking mysteries and his Lighthouse one was okay. The other one I read was the soap themed one...Hated it!

I'm a fan of Tim Myers, too.  I have to say though that to this point he does a better job writing the main character as male rather than female, IMO.  Doesn't seem to "quite get it" trying to develop a female character.  Seems just a bit off.  But I have loved the Lighthouse mysteries and the candle-making, these were two of  my favorites.

Well, that explains why I didn't like it.  I am glad I got it at the library and didn't waste a credit.
