The Sweet Dreams Bake Shop

Sweet Cove Mystery Series #1


by


Here's the book blurb:

Angie Roseland runs the Sweet Dreams Bake Shop in the seacoast town of Sweet Cove, Massachusetts. The building's new owners are not renewing the bake shop's lease, and Angie is running out of time to find a new location. When one of the town's longtime residents is murdered, Angie finds herself on the suspect list. With the help of her three sisters and a huge orange cat, Angie works to uncover the killer's identity.

*   *   *

This is the furst novel in the Sweet Cove Mystery Series and though it started off rather purromisingly, I did feel that is was furry formulaic, as though written hastily to jump on the kitty cozy mystery bandwagon.

While not my favourite book to date, it was not bad and I will in the future try book 2; which I'm hoping expands on the hints in book one regarding that Angie has powers, though only skirts the issue, plus after looking at the cover of book 2 a second kitty is clearly present.

I just felt it was rushed, and the author would have been better to have written a longer book with a little more background info, but I suppose it's all slowly revealed - drip fed - throughout the series.  While in some instances this kind of writing wurks but fur this novel I don't think it does. 

All in all, give it a go and let's hope the rest of the series doesn't feel like it's lacking and leaving mew with too many unanswered questions aftur mew've read the final wurd.

  6. Sounds like Amber is having a great time! I think I will trust your judgement and wait until you have read book #2. I like a book that once I start I don't want to put it down, and this book doesn't sound like one of those.
