    good read

    This is a quirky book, but a must to read. It has a lot going for it. It has laughable moments and serious moments.

    WAY TOO SIMPLE My Initial Reaction...  My first thought after fi

    WAY TOO SIMPLE
    My Initial Reaction... 
    My first thought after finishing Hairspray and Homicide wast that it was way too simple. The characters were simple, the mystery was PAINFULLY obvious, and it didn't have really any of the cute or wacky I've come to expect from my cozies. 

    The Good... 
    There was potential there for something really good. Like if the person who did it wasn't obvious - and there was a way to do that. Or if the little bit we did see about the characters were more developed. I know it was a novella, but I still expect some level completeness. Ok, I guess I kind of drifted off to the bad already.... what else? It was very well written grammatically, for the most part. 

    The Bad... 
    Hairspray and Homicide needed a lot more development. And to call it a cozy mystery is kind of a joke. When I think of a cozy mystery I think of wacky fun and some level of mystery. And I like to believe that the detective work makes sense. No one - not the cop and not the MC - was asking the right questions. This was detective work at its worst. 

    And it had elements it really could have exploited to it's fullest potential. A small town setting full of busy bodies. A girl returning home to the small town from the big city. Bad breakup. Cop ex-boyfriend. Scandal and affairs. Yep - all the building blocks were there, they just weren't executed well :/ 

    Concluding Sentiments... 
    I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I'm glad this was a freebie and I only spent a couple hours on Hairspray and Homicide - it was a real let down.

    Ok

    This book was alright. It only took me about twenty minutes to read. It was only fifty pages on my nook. We needed more details and emotions to fully develop the character. Others say the other books are just as short. This story could be better. If your looking for a time passing book then this will work but I wont be wasting money on the rest of the series. It was a good try for the author.

    Juvenile

    This is a short story which was well edited. It is a murder mystery. There are very few details provided about the murder. The reader is not even told how the victim was killed. There is a romance, that is hardly there. I did not like the over confident, spoiled heroine, nor the whipped, wussy, yet overly agressive, waffling police officer. This is a very tame read. There are no adult themes, cursing or religion. I guess this would be considered a cozy read. I was rather bored, but it was a fast way to pass 15 minutes, instead of reading outdated magazines in a waiting room. It was free and had about 50 pages. Chick lit. Ages 14 and up.

    Short

    Cute little mystery. Around 50 pages. Off to read book 2 and see if she gets back together with Nick.
