The author has a wonderful way of mixing rich, descriptive language, intriguing situations and subtle humor in a way that is attractive and enjoyable. Like so many good works of fiction, especially mystery, I found it a challenge to halt my reading at the end of the chapter after the budgeted time for reading was exhausted, and so was I late at night.
Teddy Morelli, the principal character in this series, is someone who I would like to meet. She is bright, energetic, a bit mischievous, and comes across the most interesting characters from a wide range of life that one could imagine. In Coffee to Die For Teddy meets with drug-dealing Alaskan fisherman one minute, uptight university administrators the next, and always, always there is family.
The most attractive part of this book is the rich language describing the sights, sounds, smells and character of the Pacific Northwest in such a succinct and pleasant way. It certainly makes me want to visit there soon to experience what Linda French sees and lives.
As I think back to our childhood, growing up in Atlanta, Georgia, I can relate those experiences to the foundation of her writing skills.
I eagerly await the next installment in the Teddy Morelli series.
