It was hard to get into at first, hard to connect with Ziva. It got better later on though.
I’m not a makeup person myself, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like reading about it. But this book comes across as a bit shallow, even juvenile. Just a little!
A lighthearted read. Normally I like lighthearted. I read to relax and a good cozy mystery can give me that relaxation. But this was too light.
There were a few mistakes/inconsistencies. Example: one of her brides was supposed to have a makeup trial run on Thursday. Thursday came and went without ever mentioning the appointment… I don’t like things like that. And I knew who did it at about a quarter of the book… A pity because I like the guessing game and there wasn’t much guessing left…
There is this whole rivalry thing with her arch nemesis that I didn’t like. I don’t think the story needed another villain besides the murderer.
Even though this is not the best cozy I’ve ever read, I WAS curious as to how the case would develop. I did want to read on. The mystery part of the story was a bit slow, but it WAS suspenseful. Pleasant enough, easy enough, but not memorable. All in all, it was in between like and OK.
It's a quick, easy read. The main character is likeable and relatable which I really liked. Sometimes it's hard to relate with characters that it takes you off the storyline. She's quirky enough that I don't find her annoying. I also like the quirky older lady, Mrs. J. She sounds just like someone I would love to hang around with but would be scared to piss off for sure.
I apologize for sounding snarky on what I am about to write next. I am not a grammar nazi, and this is just probably my issue, but it really drove me crazy every time the author wrote "later" instead of "latter." The first time, I figured it was a typo, but the second type really took me out of the storyline. That's pretty much the only nitpick I had about the book.
Other than that, I enjoyed it. I am starting the second one now. If you are into cozy, humorous, quick read mystery, I would recommend it.
