    Editor on vacation?

    I enjoy this authors writing style but I am utterly shocked at the inconsitencies in the story, the constant repeatition adding little to no value to the story. I get mentioning characteristics about a character or have a little flashback memory to explain the past with a person a few times to build the connection with the audience... but this book is over the top repeatative on several things that really arent too difficult for a reader to grasp. Joe died. Joe restored the house. Maddy is thin. Maddy has been married many times. Eleanor does not like to be called Ellie. Kevin hurt Ellie in highschool. ...... I am 2/3's into the book, and I think one or more of the facts is on every page.

    The reason I stopped reading to write this review is because on around page 140, they totally used the wrong first name for a character. Not a misspelling, a 100% wrong name. Used it twice and three paragraphs down... went back to the correct name. How could an editor not catch this?? Really???

    I feel like these books are sub-standard. Again, I do like this author, and enjoy the cozy mystery genre. I just feel that this series was rushed, not allowing for true developmemt of the story to occur. Using the wrong name for a character is so elementary... very dissapointed.

    Would rate a 2.5 to 3.

    The first book in the series was pretty good but I thought it could have been a little bit better so thought I would give the second book in the series a try. I was disappointed.
    Not to give too much away about the story line, but they focus on an armed robbery and lack of a safe. A night deposit is stuck on the pizza conveyor for safe keeping over night. Well they are unable to have use of the pizzeria for a while and when they do open again, they continue with business as usual. No mention of the night deposit again. I kept waiting to hear that it was somehow tied to the murder and that the murderer had found it on the conveyor and stole that money. But that was not to be. For such an important factor in the storyline, it just dropped into nothing. Also, whoever proofed the story let things slide in some of the storyline. For instance, they refer to a character that the main character has been steadfastly defending and in a sentence state that they know he is guilty. I believe that was supposed to have said "not" guilty.
    These things may not bother some readers but lack of details such as these bother me.

    Dont waste your time!!!

    I read Slice of Murder and couldnt wait for the next one.After reading 63 pages of Pepperoni Pizza can be Murder I am very disappointed. Eleanor Swifrt is the most bitter person about her life and lets everyone know,from David Quinton to her sister. Everyone has a loss in their life but she drags this into almost every sentence of the book. She doesnt let anyone tell her what to do,but she sure has a comment about everyone elses.I am sorry this will be my last book from her

    Good Read

    Being a book junky is tough. The supply of reading materials is shrinking but this entire series is not too bad.

    saucy cozy

    In Timber Ridge, North Carolina is home to the delicious A Slice of Delight pizza parlor owned by young widow Eleanor Swift. Although Eleanor misses her late husband and firmly believes there will never be another man for her, she loves her restaurant and those people who work there, her sister Maddy and students Gregg Hatcher and the son of the police chief Josh Hurley.

    Gregg is the only one having problems at the moment. His grandparents left their entire estate to him and his older brother Wade; the siblings never got on as the older one was spoiled rotten by their parents while the younger was an ignored accidental afterthought. Wade demands Gregg sign over a part of his portion of the inheritance, but he refuses. They argue and fight in public. Soon afterward, Eleanor finds Wade's body in the kitchen of the pizza parlor. Police Chief Kevin Hurley wants to talk with Gregg, but he goes underground hiding while trying to figure out who killed his brother. He pleads his innocence with his employer although the circumstantial evidence is overwhelming including his former girlfriend Kay coming between the battling brothers. Eleanor investigates and finds several other suspects with strong motives including Katy and an expert at flinging the dough and perhaps into A Slice of Murder.

    Pepperoni Pizza Can be Murder is a saucy cozy in which A Slice of Delight comes across as another key character. The charming story line contains a fun whodunit thanks to the cast as a grateful Eleanor is protective of her crew. Although her inquiry is typical of the sub-genre in which the amateur sleuth follows clues like following a recipe (aside one is included), which enables her to uncover the killer while the expected cop with modern day support fails, fans will enjoy a slice with a topping of homicide.
