I read about 300 books a year... I'm retired and bored.. what can I say? I love any book by this lady! All her cozy mystery series books are addicting and I love starting on a new book... it's just exciting when I know I'm going to love the time I spend reading it! These books are always well plotted, the characters are so interesting, always fun and humorous (real humor...not boring or contrived slapstick) and I hang on to every word. I never flip thru these pages by passing or speed reading thru boring paragraphs like I do other books... because there are no boring paragraphs. And I never finish one in a day because of it. I love to "enjoy" these books. All these books are great entertainment and the time just flies when I'm deep into one of them... dinners don't get cooked, laundry piles up, dust bunnies fly around, the vacuum sits idle, the mailbox fills up. The only bad thing about these books is when are over... You just want Ms. Berneathy to write faster and faster!!! Can't wait for the next one!!!
This is exactly what I needed; a fun, lighthearted, and witty escape. The characters are well-developed, the story is engrossing, and there's just enough scary stuff to pique your interest. I've only read the 1st in the series, but I had a hard time putting it down. And, happily, it was long enough to entertain me for several days. (I hate it when good books are too short!) I can't wait to read the other 2 in this package and I'm glad to discover that this author has written a lot more books, as I'm going to read them!
These 3 were a quick, fun read. First couple of chapters in book one made me think I'd have to move on to something else. I can't tolerate women who get so weak at the knees when some guy touches them that they forget everything about what a creep he is. Once we got past that point, however (fortunately very quickly) I had a heroine I could enjoy. Sally Berneathy's way of thinking, and her twist of humor, made me wonder if it was a nom de plume for Jana Deleon of the "Miss Fortune Mystery" series, which I have enjoyed very much. I consider that to be high praise. Lindy Powell was not stupid, nor was she silly, she merely had an "out of the box" thought process. I loved her and the people she collected around herself and really enjoyed these 3 adventures. Each was slightly better than the one before because Lindsay's character was better and better developed. I'd actually give 4 1/2 stars. A lot of fun.
I thought I might be less interested in these characters and plots, but here I go again I thoroughly enjoyed all 3 books. I like the authors imagination for stories and characters. I also like that the main characters are in each book (except for the ex-get rid of him) . I really hope the chocolate and her cop get together, but is very imaginative how the author gives a little more each time. Kind of fun waiting for it to happen. Oh well, off to the next book and hoping it's not the last. P.S. don't forget to try the recipes.
Not only did I LOVE these 3 books, I read the last three also, I just never tired of seeing what would happen next to Lindsay the main character, Paula her neighbor who is hiding a big secret and her other neighbor Fred who has eyes in the back of his head when it concerns the neighborhood and Lindsey, he has a bag of tricks that the FBI, CIA and others would love to have. Lindsay owns a bakery that headlines anything Chocolate that you can imagine, nor can you imagine the problems Lindsay and her friends run into. Great read, with a little of everything in it...not to mention her almost x-husband who won't go away!
I had a great time reading these 3 books. The author's sense of humor breaks through in unexpected places, and the lead character is really a truly rambunctious character in her ideas. She is never boring, although she's probably malnourished. The pace is great. I'd like to read the following books in the series.
