"Cold Turkey" definitely counts as a gem. Which was even more surprising, coming from the publisher that it does. I'm far more accustomed to Ellora's Cave books being heavy on the smut, light on the story, and even lighter on the writing skill. Cold Turkey was an excellent story, no smut at all, and fabulous writing. Very reminiscent of Charlaine Harris's "Aurora Teagarden" series - excellent main characters, a little lighter on the supporting cast, but overall an enjoyable read. And really, what's not to love about a turkey nesting in the backseat of a vintage Mustang?
And the biggest proof that I liked? I went and bought the rest of the series. So far so good!
Although, if someone wants to comment on my review and let me know - in the Epilogue a new storyline is introduced, do we ever see the conclusion of that? Book Two has a different plot so far.
I also thought some of the characters were flat. Simon has long hair. Simon drives an old van. Therefore, Simon is not only a hippie but he has unconventional politics to boot. In fact, he is a communist. Why? Because everyone in town says so. Really? Not a socialist? Not a liberal? Did she ever talk to him?
This was not a bad start. I hope the series gets better.
It is well worth the time to spend reading it. You cannot help but laugh at parts and wonder about others. I look forward to another book in the Events Unlimited.
I'll start by giving a heads up to the editing nuts out there (myself included!)--I noticed maybe 1-2 typos or editing issues in this book. If there were more, I didn't notice them, and generally they drive me insane, so they were hidden if there were more.
This is a really good book. The characters (small town, generally older population) were all interesting and entertaining. I didn't see the main character, Annike, as her age--almost 40. She seemed to be younger, both in maturity and attitude. But the chemistry between her and Sarkisian, the sheriff, is just wonderful. It was blatantly obvious that a romance would be developing between them eventually (although nothing happens between them in this book, it's set up to possibly happen later on in the series).
I think my favorite character was TDB. For a turkey, she had a lot of pluck (*snicker*)!
Usually I can figure out who the bad guy is, but I was surprised with this one.
Definitely get this while it's free! I'm off to buy the rest of the series!
The heroine is a congenial character, the Chief is not a blusterer nor know it all, most of the townspeople are more individualized and human than the stereotypes one usually finds and the plot is reasonably coherent. There is a certain amount of clutter as the book nears its denouement and multiple suspects still are in the running. Noticeable-though not particularly disturbing.
All-in-all, a good entry in the 'light cozy mystery with a touch of humor and romance' category.

Very well done plot and engaging characters. What more could you want from a mystery? I look forward to the others in this series.
