While I thought the mystery of the story was very good--I cannot stand the two boyfriend scenario at all. IMHO it distracted from the mystery itself. I have to say that I may not read another if the author continues with the two man system--she did this in her other series and to me it was the worst thing about it. Maybe part of it is that I don't like Noah (the old flame) and that the potential new flame was hardly in this story. Pick one and move forward; I'm not sure what benefit to the story line the two man angle has other than to annoy this reader. :-)

I mentally tapped my toe as I waited for Miss Ophelia to make her selection from the glass candy case.

Book 2 in the Devereaux Dime Story Mystery begins with Dev buying antique Easter chocolate molds from a stranger. After the purchase she becomes concerned that they may be stolen. Hurrying home, she prepares for a date with hunky boyfriend, Jake, who stands here up. All dressed up and no where to go, she accepts an invitation from former boyfriend, Noah. The function gives her an opportunity to acquire a new customer for her gift baskets. Dev receives a call from best friend Boone as the evening is winding down. He has been arrested for the murder of Elise Whitmore, the woman who sold Dev the Easter molds.

This is a most enjoyable series. I love the interaction between Dev and her two best friends, Boone and Poppy. Their friendship is strong and everlasting. I don't care much for Noah. He treated Dev so poorly when her dad was sent to prison and I don't think she should forgive and forget so easily. There was not enough face time with Jake in this book. I'm looking for more of that in the next one. Small town politics and gossip figure strongly in the plot. Twists and turns keep it interesting. Very good series!

Was glad I had the 2nd book in the series. I was able to go from the first to the second one without waiting. I like the series. I just hope the author doesn't wear out the two fellows in her love interest. I find that I like the heroine to have a steady guy and not a lot of back and forth break-ups. It takes away from the series and the story line.
