The cover hooked me on this one, who wouldn't like a cozy mystery with hot pie on the cover... But, that being said, it disappointed. Just not a page turner or all that funny. This is my second try at this series, and I am not taking it any further, just not my cup of cozy tea reading..
Book 2 in the series. A fun, enjoyable stop in Paradise. This is a very chatty type novel as that reflects the character. Although the ending was good, the explanation of what all happened was way too wordy and long. I rather got lost in the explanation. But overall, a fun read.
Maybe I just haven't gotten into the series yet. I am "liking" the series, just not enjoying it as much as some others I read. Josie Toadfern has taken over ownership of her family's laundromat and has made herself a stain expert. In this book, the 4th of July celebration is in jeopardy as the owners of the local pie company, who sponsor the celebration, have some issues. Rumors begin to fly; the play which tells the history of the town's founding is rumored to be re-written; Josie gets visitations from her old nemesis, a teacher, who is long dead; there are issues with Owen, Josie's boyfriend; explosions, disappearances, and murders! What is real and what is rumor? Secrets, both old and new, are exposed.
