    Unfortunately for me this was written in a style that was mostly telling and not showing which became tedious and well, boring And there were some events and behaviors that just did not make sense to me It could not keep my attention The last two books I read have been contemporary and I did not enjoy them so perhaps I should just not go there.

  13. Leslie aka StoreyBook Reviews

    A fun new cozy series especially since it centers around food I love the idea of farming or having a garden but don t think you ll find me doing that.There are a lot of interesting characters to round out the story, with several back stories on different characters that I think we will see of in the future.Regarding the mysteryI didn t figure out who the bad guys were until revealed I wanted to throw a few of the characters to the wolves and wanted them to be culprit but no such luck maybe in a [...]

  17. Jacqueline (Fall In Love With The Sound of Words)

    I found this book a bit difficult to get into at first I didn t have much interest in the mystery, and there was a very in depth look into Megan s life as a farmer Caf owner ex lawyer, that I felt took away from the story a little There was just a lot of information and explaining that I felt wasn t so necessary I actually caught my mind wandering a few times as I was reading.As for the characters, I found them a bit annoying, and the ones I fairly liked were pretty trivial to the story as a who [...]
