There is a lot of potential for a cozy mystery but a really good proofreader/editor is desperately needed. Too much of the book us repeating the plot and confusing, unrelated scenes.

I enjoyed it, but like many other reviews it could use editing. More than one spelling, grammer error. Id still recommend it!

Alot of misspellings . The plot seemed to wander. The main person was like a young kid . Not to my type of reading sorry. Glad it was free. Will not look for other books by this author.

I would probably have enjoyed this cute little book but I couldn't get past page 10. With grammatical mistakes in most every paragraph, it simply became too much to try and read. It's a free book and in this case, I guess you get what you pay for.

This would be a great first draft of a book but it should never have been published like this. It is sloppy, inconsistent, and predictable. The main character is more of a hindrance to the police investigation because she's unnecessarily paranoid than she is a true detective. The romance in the end should be removed entirely. It also needs to be edited for spelling, punctuation and grammar. Like I said, it seems like a great first draft. I wish the author had just been patient enough or open-minded enough to have some people read and critique it before it being published. This had the potential to be good.

Poor grammar

I enjoyed the story itself, but it read like a poorly planned rough draft: redundant comments, contradictions, poor transitions, horrible grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. Great potential, but seemed like it was written by a sixth grader. :/

While the plot kept my interest, I found the poor writing tedious. Between poorly written sentences and the use of incorrect homonyms, the lack of proper editing was obvious. The author also alternated between giving too much detail and not enough. In addition, the scenario that the plot was built around was the same as three other books I have read so far this year (grandma dies in small town and leaves her house to her granddaughter who moves from the big city to start/revamp a cupcake shop. Granddaughter gets accused of murder and falls for the cute detective). The author definately has potential, but needs to take some writing and grammar classes and invest in a good proofreader.

Typos, gramatical errors. Main character is juvenile. Plot is weak. Reads like a rough draft.

The first nine pages were recycled inspirational quotes, every other sentence is a quote. Not a good start makes for a quick end.

This was a fun little story about a young woman whose grandmother has left her a desert/coffee shop. It was failing and because she loved her grandmother so much she took her savings and invested it in the shop. Now she’s close to penniless herself and before she even has a grand opening, she gets a bad and unfair review from a food critic who is engaged to the family’s daughter who owns the competition. She is on her way to the paper where the food critic (Brad) works. When she arrives the cleaning lady starts screaming that Brad is dead and when she goes to look she sees one of her cupcakes half eaten. The tale unfolds rather slowly and the woman tries to be a sleuth and find out who is trying to set her up to take the fall for murder. I found the pace of the book too slow for my taste but the storyline was good.

I sincerely hope that English isn't the author's first language. Truly awful grammar, syntax, word choice, transitions, and descriptions. Also, the phrase 'endlessly redundant' doesn't begin to convey the number of needless repetitions. Reiteration of the main character's emotional responses to triggers large and small doesn't make her motivations any more convincing.

This book had a decent plot but was poorly written. The story was bare bones. It lacked a lot of the descriptive detail that makes a tale come to life, although, one chapter did describe a room in excruciating overkill. I could almost hear an instructor suggesting that less would be more to the author. This book had numerous grammatical and spelling errors. Perhaps the writer accidentally published an early draft instead of the finished book? In any case, this book gave me such a negative impression that I will not waste my time reading other books by this author.

Boring and sicky sweet.

Quick read, with no sex scenes, a lot of nonsense, but left me feeling not cheated of the time spent reading this.

Alot of typos!! No character or scene developement, lacks feeling of any kind, the mystery itself was ok, kept you guessing! Quick read

I love foodie cozy mysteries, this one was okay. There were several grammatical errors, I found myself wanting a red pen. This could be a four star book, it just needs to be edited. At times it was to wordy and descripetive, while others left me saying, "What?" Overall, an okay way to spend some time reading.

Dana leaves New York to move to Canada to help run a cafe her grandmother left to her. A few days into being there a murder occurs and all things point to her. Okay read. Unless I miss counted...it only mentions five different times that she used up all her savings to put in the cafe and the move. It has few recipes in back
