Good, solid story. A little slow in a few places, but kept my interest until the end. It is nice to read a big where the story is not filled with useless profanity.

    Rather boring.

    The best thing about this book was the recipes. The heroine was a twit and I got so bored with the whole thing that I skipped to the end. Waste of my money.

    Clever - a must read

    I have a new favorite mystery author - Karen MacInerney. Great plot, believable characters....can't wait to read the rest of the series.

    Could be a good book

    I found this story to drag even though it was just over 200 pages. I felt that there was too much time spent on Nat making breakfast at the inn than actually looking for clues. I also didn't like how Nat came off as stupid, for example, in one scene she goes to the victim's room and goes through their stuff leaving fingerprints everywhere when she knew the detectives would be there the next morning and thought of her as a main suspect. Also the romance between Nat and John was so minimal and ridiculous and seemed almost like an afterthought.
