I didn't care for this series nearly as much as I liked the Magdalena Yoder series. I read the whole series in order, and with each book, I had to check to make sure I hadn't missed one in between, there was such a big continuity gap in the storyline. There are lots of details that are inconsistent from book to book. All in all, it was entertaining, but not great. I realize that's not much incentive to read the series, but maybe you'll identify with southern women better than I do!

For a first in a series, did a great job holding your interest. Ending was a surprise but all explained... can't wait to read more by author

My favorite kind of mystery: a murder, a little humor and a suggestion of a romance.

Interesting mystery, but I did not take to the protagonist. She was too belligerent and angry. Not funny.

I had never heard of this author before so was very excited to read her books. I wanted to start her Pennsylvania Dutch series but haven't gotten my hands on them yet so started this series. I love a good cozy mystery and I have #2 ready to read here. It has been too long since I read this to remember the details but I will definitely continue with her books.

I just finished reading Larceny and Old Lace. I had previously read a book from later in this series, which I also enjoyed, however reading book 1 illuminated the characters I had previously met in the 'Ming and I'. Not only does the mystery have many twists, Ms Myers humor gives quite an enjoyable look at the life of her characters. Of course living in South Carolina I could relate to many of the terms and places mentioned in this series.
