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.

Breach of Crust (Charmed Pie Shop, #5)

Breach of Crust  - Ellery Adams

Boy has this series gotten 'out there'.  It's almost more fantasy than cozy mystery.

 

I liked the characters and setting as much as ever, but the plot of this one was just too much for me.  The murder mystery was well plotted, but the whole climax at the end was just too melodramatic and over-the-top; if it had been written to be an urban fantasy, it would have worked much better; as a cozy, it just comes across too cute to take seriously.

 

I loved the very end though; it was believably sweet.
