Book 1 in a series. I really, really wanted to like this book. I love cats and I love cozy mysteries. But this was just not quite for me. The cat character was written so we "know" his thoughts. I didn't really care for the way that was written as I would have preferred name for his people instead of "Old One", old "Old One", etc.
The main character wasn't too bad, but it was somewhat hard to connect with her for some reason.
Toward the end, there was a bit of lightness which I wish had been through out all the books as that is one of things I really like about cozy mysteries.
I probably won't read the rest of the series as there are others I like much more even though this wasn't too bad.
#1 in a series - Elderhostel. I somewhat enjoyed the book. They mystery part was good. I wasn't too thrilled with all the references to his erectile dysfunction due to his age. But then, it is written by a guy, so I guess I can't expect something too different. But overall, it wasn't a bad book to read.
This could have been a really good thriller to read, but because it was written in 1st person by 2 of the characters. It made it a bit hard to follow as I had to remember which one was speaking. Since both of the men (even though they were different ages)acted somewhat the same, I found it harder to tell the difference when they were "speaking". So it always took me a bit of time to figure out who was talking at the beginning of the chapter. Good ending, but not the greatest way of telling the story.
Book #2 in the series. I have enjoyed this series and I even got a good soup recipe from the book. The characters are enjoyable and fun to read about. I would love to visit a place like this that had the variety of stores that they do in the town.
Book #3 in the Booktown Mystery series. I have enjoyed this series of books so far. The characters are fun and entertaining. And not everyone is perfect or all bad, so that is nice too. And you get a few recipes at the end of the book also as a bonus
This isn't my favorite of Deeanne Gist's books but not because of her writing. I am irritated at her "hero" and his mind set. But I figure if an author can get me emotional about a book (doesn't matter what type of emotion) then she has captured my interest.
If the male character had been a bit different I would have enjoyed it more. But I will continue to read her books as I have very much enjoyed all the rest of them
Book 1 of the Georgia trilogy.
Interesting book of the very old South and the people that lived there. These are real people in history, but the author has fictionalized thoughts, feelings and words, but has made them very alive.
This book is book #2 of a series. The first book is Carrie's Farm.
This takes place in Oak Valley, OR. Carrie is trying to figure out if she will ever find anyone to love again. And there are many secrets to also figure out.
Book 10 in the Hannah Swensen's mysteries. I love this series. The characters are entertaining and amusing. The recipes are good also and so fun to try. Now if only Hannah would make up her mind which boyfriend she really wants!
