I really enjoyed this book. It is simple, easy to read, mildly amusing, moderately clever, and extremely comfortable. Hmmm. I guess that what a good cozy should be, eh? It's short and pleasant. I look forward to the rest of the series and I guess I'll have to try his other series, as well. Recommended for cozy lovers everywhere.

This was an excellent book! I really liked Tim Myers' style of writing and appreciated how he can effectively write a cozy mystery from a man's point of view. I had hoped the murderer would be a different character because I wanted them to be out of the series, lol...
I also liked the effect Myers used to cause the reader to trust and like Harrison, by ending most of his dialogue with "I admitted". It just made me love Harrison and his honesty! :)

At Wicks End by Tim Myers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Candlemaking, I've only briefly tried my hand at the simple poured candles, but a cozy mystery set in a candle shop, well that is right up my alley.

The book starts with a phone call, telling Harrison that his great0aunt has passed away and that he has inherited her candlemaking shop, along with the whole building that houses the shop, including some other craft type stores and an apartment upstairs.

The more Harrison gets to know the people and how things work, he is not so sure that his aunts death was actually an accident. Of course no one wants to believe that so it is up to Harrison to figure out what really happened. All the while learning the candle making craft and how to be a shop owner and a landlord.

This was a short book, quick read and the characters were fairly well written, enough so that i wanted to read the next book. I am still finding a few of the characters hard to read and understand, they are being revealed slowly, but i am interested enough to keep reading.
