    I love mysteries. Cozies are my favorite mysteries to read. I'm hooked. Hooked.


    I always enjoy getting my hands on a new series, new author ~ new author to the publishing world or new to me.


    I get a kick out of being the first to scoop up the latest. I consider myself a cozy devotee.


    Sadly, A Catered Murder did zip, zero, nada for me. Nothing. I was bored. I found excuses not to read it. I read other books instead.

    I wondered how on earth this book got published. Did it win a contest? Was it nepotism?


    Was the editor @ Kensington about to embark on a cruise & said, " Oh, what the heck? " or did s/he win the lottery & give them a shot @ making their dream come true?


    I am one of those people who has to finish a book ~ no matter what.


    I am slowly learning to stop being so anal & read the incredible books waiting to be read.


    Instead of slogging through the drivel, I have decided to toss the books I can't digest aside.


    I have allowed myself to read the first 50 pages a` la Oprah, but have come up w/ my own reader meter ~ 25 pages.


    So, what was it about this book that was so foul tasting?


    Ingredients:

    Zzz
    Characters too over the top
    Grammatical errors
    Predictable plot
    Dialogue too problematic to follow
    Typing errors
    Snore Syrup
    Lack of Sense Sauce


    Isis Crawford's previous experience was as a food writer.


    Hmmm... maybe the recipes are worth the read, but I didn't bother. I walked away... ok, sprinted.


    A Catered Murder is the first of the Mystery with Recipes series & just because it isn't for my palate... you may enjoy this serving.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought that it was unique in the fact that we don't have just one sleuth but two. A sister team that has two distinctive personalities but actually care about each other, unlike some that I've read. I love how Bernie starts rambling about any info that she has stored in her brain, sometimes driving people crazy. The only drawback I had was when it was figured out who did it, I was a little lost. I don't know if I missed some clues, or if they just weren't there. Still it was a fun read and I will continue on with the series.

    Too much in burb and too many receipes

    Makes this another failed cozy why must failed heroines all go into food preparation? What happened to house sitting and that favorite of old the nanny or companion or the rhinehart private duty nurse in the home. This will be a feeble friday freebie if series follows page counter
