Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Diners, Drive-ins and Death (Comfort Food Mystery, #3)

Diners, Drive-Ins, and Death - Christine Wenger

The writing has improved.  The MC shows slightly more maturity.  2 or 3 continuity issues (a 1 million dollar life insurance policy becomes 2 million a chapter later) that were negligible.

 

The mystery itself was average - the killer was obvious and I think the author was hoping for a plot twist but it didn't feel twisty to me at all.  So, could have been better.

 

Still, I find something strangely compelling about the characters; if the series ended with this one I wouldn't blink an eye, but still I feel the need to read the next one.  I don't know why - it won't be for the recipes at the back:  I am fundamentally, philosophically, and theologically opposed to anything with velveeta as an ingredient.
