I've just found a new cozy series to enjoy. Although DiSilverio's first Readaholics mystery could have used a bit of tightening, I just kept finding more and more things about this book to make me smile.

Amy-Faye is just the sort of protagonist cozy mystery readers love. She's smart and funny and loyal-- and of course, she's not above a bit of snooping when she feels justice isn't being done. She's going to have to take care, however, or her sleuthing will have a detrimental effect on her event planning business.

I'm not one to appreciate toxic parents. When it comes to the mysteries I read, I'd much prefer that-- if the parents are too obnoxious to live-- they be neither seen nor heard. I'm thrilled to report that although our heroine's are quirky, Mom and Dad are delightfully so (especially Amy-Faye's mother, the retired librarian-turned-book-reviewer), and I'll be happy to visit with them any time.

Amy-Faye's also got a first-rate group of friends who all have varying backgrounds, talents, and personalities. This certainly bodes well for the future of the series, and I look forward to learning more about each of them as each book is released.

And how about that mystery, you ask? It's a good one with a very well-disguised villain. I do like to be kept guessing! Unfortunately I don't enjoy being kept waiting, which is what I must do until the next time the Readaholics book club meets.

Enjoyed this very much. Funny, with several twists and turns. Didn't know for sure who the killer was, but not surprised. Look forward to more of the same.

Well...I liked this book so much I purchased it twice! Yup, I did. I need to travel with a computer to book stores so I can check and see if I already read a book.
I digress, I truly did enjoy this book. I really like our heroine. Spunky, perky, a risk-taker, and surprising human when it comes to matters of the heart. Decent mystery, I almost guessed the culprit. However, you knew there would be a however, I really do not see the tie-in to the title unless it was because the bookclub read it in the first chapter? Would love a tighter tie-in.
