I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
I started this book, got half-way through the first chapter and then put it down again for weeks. Can't really explain why, but when I picked it up again I was immediately absorbed in the story.
While the basis of the plot centered on a Santaria hex, the investigation of the mystery really didn't include a large amount of information about Santaria, which I would have enjoyed. Still, it was a very good mystery with a lot of kinks to keep you guessing who exactly the culprit was.
I like Liz more now than I did in the first book, although I still want to smack her mother and tell her to mind her own business. I'll be looking for book 3 with anticipation.
