I thought this was a nice little cozy. For me though, there wasn't much "beef" to it that I look for in my higher rating books. I was very loosly reminded of Charlaine Harris' Roe Teagarden mystery, but CH's righting is much more polished and concise. If you are looking for a nice little "cutsy" mystery, I'd def. check it out. Furthermore, if I was looking for a lighter read to break up a period of heavier reading, I would continue to read this author.
