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.
