Loved this book. This one keeps you guessing until the end. Even though the things that happen to Goldy are a little unbelievable, it's fun to see what mishaps and messes she gets herself into.

I did enjoy reading this book. It was a fast read and I found myself mildly entertained. I have never read another book by this author before and the playful writing style was easy to follow. You really don't have to read another of the series to read this book.

Of the things I didn't like in this book, I did feel like there were too many subplots going on at the same time. Too many subplots ruin the broth. Usually, I prefer one mystery done well, instead of 5 mysteries which make no sense. Also, at times the dialogue between the characters seemed overly wordy. I found myself swimming in the details a few times, however, the conclusion of the main mystery was a surprise.

In order to read this book, you really have to expect the unrealistic. For example, what are the chances that a woman and her husband (who is a cop who investigates homicides) would actually let Yolanda (one of the main suspects) live with them while she's under investigation? From the beginning I thought just that was unbelievable. I know it's fiction, but, for myself it's more enjoyable if it's realistic.

If you're in the mood for a cozy mystery, with lots of food and coffee descriptions, this is a good book. If you're looking for something realistic, though, this might not be your cup of tea.
