This series is hands down one of my very favorite cozy series. Jenn McKinlay is an excellent writer and she has made the characters in these books come alive. They grow and you learn things about them in every new book. However, I am not thrilled with the possibility of a romantic "triangle" getting thrown into the mix! That whole gimmicky plot point is so trite and definitely beneath a writer of Ms. McKinlay's caliber. As for the mystery itself, I had no idea who the killer was until it was revealed. Great build-up to that. I like a story that catches me off-guard! Looking forward to the next one, and here's hoping the "triangle" potential gets swept under the rug! RECOMMEND!!
