Interesting story that combines hospital drama and courtroom thriller. From the back: Somebody dies. A young mother is recuperating in a San Francisco hospital when she is suddenly gasping for breath. The call button fails to bring help in time. The hospital 's doctors, some of the best in the nation, are completely mystified by her death. How did this happen? Apocalypse Nears. This is not the first such case at the hospital. Just as patients are about to be released with a clean bill of health, their conditions take a devastating turn for the worse.
a romance novel that pretends to be a mystery. I had a hard time finishing this one. It had the stompy foot heroine and the silent, strong but sweet hero. Spoiler alert - They get engaged on their first date. Stupid characters and an implausible plot that relies on dumb luck more than sleuthing. If you like romances and don't care about mystery, then you might enjoy this one.
Larger than life quirky characters that slide into the unbelievable. But the plot line is interesting and I enjoyed the story. I hope she dials back the quirky for the next one - I am certainly going to give it a read.
I enjoyed this one - but I have to say - after reading the first two books, I was hoping that the teddies would play less of a pivotal role and more of an accent in the whole crime/mystery. There can only be so many teddy crimes, after all, without it being a very dangerous hobby.
an interesting take on the cozy - set in the depression. The mystery is slow to take off, but it had good characters and interesting descriptions of the time and place. Not a riveting page turner but a good read.
Although I enjoyed solving the mystery, I really really wished the author had not used the images of violence against animals. I enjoy reading mysteries with animals in them - so this was very disturbing to me.
good mystery - cram-packed with food. The author lovingly describes many dishes served in the cafe where the mystery is placed. (It was a little too much for me, but some might like all of the descriptions.) Very similar in tone to the knitting series, so if you like it you will like this one.
