    A very very short story

    Very disappointed in this book. I did not realize this was a novella or short story and the story line was not realistic at all. I love the cozy sleuth novels and realize they do not always follow actual police policies but you had to suspend all police procedure in this and the ''love'' story between the two main characters happens almost instantaneous. Did not enjoy at all.

    Protagonist: 10/10
    Secondary Characters: 10/10
    Mystery: 5/10
    Humor: 6/10
    Pace: 10/10

    A nice quick read! I thought it was a fun story. Writing was good and the pacing was fast. Just enough humor to keep me interested, although I do wish there had been more. The characters are fleshed out and likable. This was just the book I needed to pull me back from the edge of a reading slump. Light and fluffy fun on every page! I was able to finish it in just a couple of nights and it didn't require much brain power. A great book to read at the beach or to unwind with before bed. I highly recommend. I can't wait to continue on with the series! And can I just say how freaking awesome this cover is?! I love it!

    I enjoyed this cozy read about Lexy and her sexy love interest, Jack. I like the secondary characters like her grandmother & her friends who are always available to help Lexy solve the murder/murders she finds herself involved in.
    Nice, relaxing & fun to read in between the heavier suspenseful book. Will follow the series. JudyE

    70 pages

    This is the first book in a series. It is only 70 pages of story. The rest is general information and the author patting herself on the back, all added together, equal 98 pages. First this book is silliness on all levels. It is cheesy, shallow and might have been a mid term story for a high school jr in a literture class. The editing was pretty good. It is a mystery romance. A police officer and a baker are the main characters. This book is so unrealistic, it makes Jack and the Beanstalk serious reading material. There are no adult topics. The cup cake tops made me laugh out loud. Well, at least the author has a sense of humor. Alas, I do not think she meant to be funny. This book is more for the age group 13-16 than adults. Chick lit. I did not like this cozy mystery at all. It was too juvenile for me.

    Not as good as others

    This series has great titles, but if the storylines are this simple, they aren't worth the effort

    Pretty good.

    For a first novel...it was pretty good. It wasn't the greatest though. However, it was good enough that I want to read the next one. It was a little rushed and almost thrown together, though the story was good.
