~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review
The writing is good throughout the story, which is fast paced. It's a quick read. There is no sex and the violence is really minor.
Kerri Gale is just trying to open a store to sell nuts. One thing after another happens to keep her from doing that. And things seem to have the help of the local police. Then her grandfather shows up, whom she hasn't seen in years. And he claims to be a spy. Well, would you believe it? No, it didn't seem believable to me, either.
There are lots of characters to help her figure this all out, other than her grandfather. There's Natalie, her assistant. Harry, the helpful handyman, Chris, the late owner's brother, Steve, the reporter, Chief Higgins, and Detective Meyers. But you never really get a feel for any of these characters because everyone is so busy dashing from here to there that there's no time to get to know them.
What do I remember about the book? I remember Kerri has a Yorkie called Cashew and she talks to a chatty squirrel several times. I also remember that the local Chief of Police was covering things up, like the former owner of the shop's death. I just didn't get a real feel for the people in the story. It was entertaining, but it didn't stay with me.
The premise is good and was what appealed to me. As does the cover art. I really like the colorful cover chosen for this book. It's been popular with other reviewers but just didn't take with me. Try it to see if this popular writer is one for you.
This book was fabulous. If you like a mystery with the warmth of family and a little romance mixed with murder this is for you.
Cindy Bell is a great writer, she will take you into the lifes of her characters that will make you not want to stop reading.
So, make sure you have time to sit back and relax till the end. A must read in my book. Can't wait till the second one comes out.
