I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
This book started off a bit slow for me, but I'm going to blame outside influences and not the book itself.
Once I was able to pick it up and start reading uninterrupted, I didn't put it down again until I was finished. I really liked the mystery, it had a lot of good, solid suspects and I didn't have any idea who the culprit was until it all came together in the end.
A couple of smaller sub-plots are nicely interwoven into this story, but it's clear these are story lines that will continue throughout multiple books, without leaving you with a cliffhanger. I really liked the ending as well. I still find Chef Caine to be a little cold, but I enjoy reading about her and the other characters.
