However, be aware that, while the story moves along at a good pace and is well-plotted, there are areas where the author brings specific information to light but does not follow up, leaving the reader hanging. And I don't mean like a "hook" for another book - I mean that the author just doesn't complete the thread of the sub-plot.
Also, this novella has serious editing and proofing problems. Characters are called by one name in one paragraph and a different name three paragraphs later. Words are misspelled or left out entirely. Sentences alternate between present and past tense within the same paragraph and sometimes within the same sentence.
In addition, there is at least one situation where an entire scene is played out in a chapter, only for the author to have the main character, two very short chapters later, have an internal dialogue that implies that scene never occurred. Talk about being jerked out of a story in a state of confusion!
Just because of human nature, some proofing mistakes are to be expected, but the sheer numbers and types of errors in this work really killed my enjoyment of the book.
This book read very much like a first draft that needed SERIOUS revision and editing. I've noticed small errors in her previous books but in this book they are truly distracting.
Also, the relationship between James and Amanda needs a little spice. Are they married - newlyweds at that - or brother & sister?!?! I'm not talking about explicit scenes or anything like that. But it's fully possibly to hint at passion without spelling it all out.
Overall very disappointing.
Just heard from the author. It appears the wrong file was sent to Amazon. The new, good book copy will be “pushed” out in the next few days so if you received the bad version you will receive the correct file!
This is an idealized slice of small-town life - yes, pretty much 99% Caucasian - where obstacles are easily overcome and life seems to ends well 95% of the time. To achieve this means multiple bad things get glossed over in each story. There is no character development at all. What you get in the first novel is the same all the way through the series (at least so far, and I'm on book #10).
These are 'feel good' stories, which is not a bad thing. Just realize it also means there's not a lot of depth to this series. Romance runs easily (for the heroine/hero). Marriage is a snap. Remodeling and new home construction have no snags (Hah! I wish!). These mysteries are light, easy, quick reads.
In this caper, a new tea shop opens in town. Will it take over the current coffee shop? A few residents are worried, especially when the owner begins to spread bad news about his competition. Who dares move to a new town and tries to hurt the citizen? Amanda will figure it out... except the poor guy dies from an allergy attack even while trying to get his epi pen to work. What happened?
I enjoy seeing Amanda's marriage and relationship with her husband. She is also getting close to a new person in her life that has ties to her past. I won't spoil it, but it was a bit of a shock to see where this story went! It's been over a year since I read the first few books, so I can't be sure if history was changed a little. Either way, it makes for good tale, and I look forward to the next one. Light, simple, and fun... you can read them in an hour and just have a relaxing adventure.
