Just finished it: thought it was pretty good for a cozy  (unlike last cozy I read!).  Anyone else read it yet?

I was thinking of posting it but it has a slight tear on the cover (less than an inch) so need to check if its postable.

I have read all three books in the series and liked them all.  But I am a "cozy reader" and there are very few series that I won't stick with.

I haven't read it yet. 

From the Help Docs:  (Bold is mine)


  • Must both be present (front and back)
    • note that a paperback missing its front cover is  usually an illegal, unsold copy
    • "cover" does not = dust jacket.  Hardcovers do not need to include their dust jackets to be swapped here.
  • Cover not water damaged (there may be no water damage to any part of the book)
  • Cover not torn or chewed/gnawed
    • some used book stores cut out a small part of the cover; if the amount missing is less than 1 square inch, this is OKAY
    • a small rip (less than 1 inch) in the cover is OKAY
    • yes, that does say "chewed/gnawed" above.  That means no pet-chewed (or human-chewed) books.
  • A bookplate inside the cover or on the flyleaf is OKAY

Thanks.  I've gone through and posted it. Its just they've been so many posts lately about people complaining about getting damaged books that I didn't want to risk it.  But I did post it: its a good book and just has a small tear on the front cover. 

I'm going to check the library for the other 2 books in the series
