To me, this was not a typical cozy mystery. There was more sex, kinkiness and bad language than the norm. That being said, I still enjoyed it. The main character was likeable and down to earth. I'm not sure I'll stay with the series but I will definitely read the next one to see if it pulls me in a bit more.

#1 in the Murder by Month Mystery Series

I was hooked by page 2 and read it in a day! I loved it!! It was very fast paced and a fun read! I have the 3rd in the series and don't want to read it till I read the 2nd one. It has been on my wish list a very long time! I may just have to end up buying it :(

I loved this book. During the Summers I live around the samll town where the story takes place. The book made me laugh out loud, infact every time I go through or stop in the town, I laugh just thinking of the book. Some of the book is fictional but some is true. It's fun to try and figure out which parts are and are not true. I'm one of those that got stopped by the police at the bottom of the hill at the edge of town. It's a really cute town and the author did a great job creating her story.

I wasn't really in the mood to read when I started, but by chapter 2 I was hooked! I became fully engrossed in Mira's life quickly because the author fully describes activities and places. I want to visit Battle Creek now. The mystery has enough twists and turns and red herring that I kept changing my mind about "who dun it".
June Bug just arrived at the library today (2/28), so I'll be reviewing that book soon.

It was a little slow to start, but after a few chapters, I really enjoyed it. This is definitely NOT a predictable story at all ! ! ! A little weird in places, but definitely not boring! I will read the next.

This is an interesting book. It starts out somewhat slow, but is such a short book that it picks up quickly. There are some laugh out loud parts, I certainly would not consider it a "cozy" as I have seen it described, but at the same time I am not really all that interested in reading more int he series. The characters to me were not that gripping,. the small town not that outstanding and just overall lacked the interest level to continue the series.
