I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
It was ok. Becca is in Arizona, researching another farmer's market and stumbles across a murdered man. She get's sucked into the mystery and investigation a bit unwittingly.
The story is a light, quick read but I think I prefer the novella's that add a bit of backstory, or fill in a bit of history for one or more of the characters and their relationships with each other. This one was more an "out-of-time" short story.
Still, I don't consider it at all a waste of time to have read it and if anyone likes the series, I wouldn't steer them away from this.
