Soon after returning home a mysterious lady is found murdered. Now that really shouldn’t be part of Lacy’s life except her Grandmother is arrested for the murder. Enter a bumbling Detective who ignores way too many clues and totally frustrates Lucy. The next to enter is Jason Cantor, the former jock from high school. No sooner does Jason enter and tell Lacy to not get in the way of the investigation, then Tosh Underwood, the newly assigned minister of her Grandmother’s church. Now Lucy has two suitors.
While the reviews I read felt it was a weak storyline, poor characters, I like it. It’s an interesting story line and I was not able to really know who the murdered was until almost to the end.
Althrough the overall story as a mystery was alright, I think this book would deserve 4 starts. It was because I couldn't put down this book - which should be a good indicator how much I was engaged while reading. Yes, flirting between the three characters (Lacy, Jason, and Tosh) were a bit out of my taste and felt like I was reading a harlequeen novel, and some part of plot was weak and strange, overall it made me a finish line very quickly, and I got a surprise (without judging it was good or bad) when I discovered the murderer.
The very ending (excluding the pie recipe) was a bit..???, even though now I knew there was a sequence. It seemed a bit of...out of my expectation from the immediate preceding storyline. Another thing which bothered me was.. what was the point Tosh being so rich? Why there were no explanation at all his role in the story for him to be so outrageously rich and being pastor in this remote small town, rather than adding a taste of harlequeen romance with triangle relationship to the story?
That big twist at the end took me totally by surprise and I wasn't expecting it at all. When I bought this book a few years ago, I think it was the cover that kept me from reading it. It just looks dang cheesy. But the text is not cheesy at all. This is a well-written and interesting story. I was captivated by Lacy and all her exploits. This is definitely one you want to check out. I mean, it's only 99 cents in the Kindle store and worth every penny. This book takes the axiom "don't judge a book by its cover" to a whole new level.
