    While the first in this series was my favorite, I enjoyed all three of these books and look forward to the fourth in the series, Death of a Chocoholic, due to be released January of 2014.

    Author Lee Hollis (Mr. Copp & Ms. Simason), has created a delightful protagonist in Hayley Powell. Her exploits in these three tales had me laughing out loud more times then I can count. Hayley is a very real, less than perfect woman, making her way in life raising her two children and working her job at the newspaper. I liked the situations she finds herself in. Hayley is helped through her adventures by her best friends Mona, an always pregnat lobster boat captain and Liddy, a high class real estate agent. Throw into the mix her brother Brain owner of the local bar, his partner Sergio the chief of police, Hayley's children, her dog Leroy (named for her NCIS TV crush Mark Harmon) Sal the editor of The Island Times and Bruce the smarmy crime reporter at the paper---you have a very well rounded cast of characters. Add to that, Bar Harbor, Maine as the beautiful setting and you have winning combinations.

    With fast paced plots, interesting twists and solid story lines, this series is destined to be a favorite among readers.

    Recipes lovers, you won't be disappointed. Every book features Hayley's column Island Food & Spirits, which includes seven recipes from Hayley's kitchen along with cocktails to enjoy while preparing your meal! ¿

    Highly Recommended

    Lee Hollis has a way with writing that keeps a reader wanting more. She never fails to surprise with twists and turns, from beginning to end. The setting is the quaint Bar Harbor, Maine where everyone knows everyone until an infamous country singer and his entourage arrive in town. Being a food writer at the local newspaper gives Hayley Powell the opportunity to become chef for the week for the country singer. When one member of the entourage is found dead, just about everyone in Bar Harbor becomes a suspect in murder. The ending is told in a very unique manner. Even though clues had been written throughout the novel, the villain disclosure is still surprising.

    Once you get past the "teenager's diary" feel, it's enjoyable

    I almost gave up on this a a few times. There was just too much time stuck with the main character as a giddy, star-struck teenie-bopper. But if you can ignore that, there's a pretty decent cozy buried here. Good plot and characters. I cared about the characters and kept turning the page.

    Ok for a snowy day.

    For a boring Sunday afternoon read this not a bad choice. The writing is sophomoric at best, the characters are shallow (in more ways than one) and I frequently got the impression that this was written by a 16 year old. Overall it was a mindless read and helped to pass the time on a cold snowy winter's day. Maybe this would be good for younger readers even though the main character is supposedly a 30 something mother of 2 and a writer for the local newspaper as well as a superior cook. Rather unbelieveable but still entertaining in its own way.

    Not worth the money!

    This book had a totally implausable plot, the "detective" of the book was so wishy-washy i wanted to slap her threwout this book. There were so many different lines of ridiculousness going that you scratched your head trying to keep up with a.mom who basically neglects her kids, knows everyone in town and just like magic the all just tell her "all". I read several books every week...but will not read this author again!

    Careless 2

    The watch guards walked pver to Sawyer with a steady pace. The girl, Lauren, helped Sawyer walk to the door of the academy. The boy, Steve, followed at their heels. Lauren gace the door a gentle push and led Sawyer and Steve inside to the bright lights from the chandelier and the soothing sound of a bee's hum. Sawyer watched as her Ivy and Jaquelin from the Tigers approached them. "Sawyer! What happened to yoi! Need me to get you a comb?" Asked Ivy brushing her golden curls behind her ear. Jaquelin sighed and punched Ivy lightly on the shoulder,"Why a comb, dumbo?!" Ivy glared at Jaquelin and turned her concerned gaze back on at Sawyer. "I'm fine Ivy! No need to be so worried," Sawyer said trying to sound cheerful. The dogs had really scared her. "No, your not okay! You look all pale! Should we call the healer?" Ivy squealed. Sawyer brushed past the watch guards to her two friends. "I'm fine," she said in her most convincing voice. Jaquelin nodded understandingly but Ivy still looked worried. Her clear blue eyes seemed to pierce right through Sawyer. "I'm fine," she repeated. "Well, lets go to the Tigers then!" Jaquelin concluded. (Please tell me if I should continue! Also if I do decide to continue I will post after this week due to a trip to Florida but otherwise no worries!)

    Chicken

    If food can be a desire, this is the book for you. With recipies, drink mixes, and a well written murder mistery, mixed with a little humor, this is a fast paced series.
