I always love the covers on these cozy mystery books. This one is a very good representation of the story within. It’s eye-catching and interesting. The composition is spot on. It has interesting typography and makes great use of graphics.
I enjoyed this one. It was quirky and well-written. It had a nice pace to it. It was filled with twist and turns. It had a bunch of interesting side characters, and it kept me guessing right up until the end.That said, what I could have done without was the romance aspect. One because romances rarely work for me in these type of books. They are always inevitably underdeveloped or treated as an afterthought. And that was the case here. Two, this romance was depressing and included one of the biggest cliches you’ll find in romance books. I ended up thinking Mason was a douche and although I was glad Maddie ended things I finished this book feeling bummed out, and that took away from my enjoyment of the story as a whole.
Had the romance aspect been simpler without all the cliched drama or had it been left out altogether this book would have gotten a higher rating.
