This got my attention because of the cover (on Amazon). It's a lot more eye-catching than the original cover and got me to buy it. It was a cozy-ish read but Cora, the main character didn't do much sleuthing. Honestly, she happened into what she found out but the main men in the story were all more pivotal here than she was. The mystery itself was pretty good but did get a bit lost in the chick-lit aspect of the story with Cora's love life, friends and her steadfast but repetitive "I don't ever want children!" (which was pretty impressive to read in a female character but she was a tad manic about it). The middle lagged a bit but this picked up in the last third and was a good read through the end. One of her co-worker friends, Scott has an adorable malapropism habit that reminds me of Flis of The Kensington Kidnap .
One real criticism is that there weren't transitions to different characters or scenes as one reads along. It was abrupt and made for a shock when you realize the change has occurred. I didn't like that and hope it's adjusted for a more smooth read in the next book.
I liked Cora and her friends enough to read the next (I've already bought it).
