review 1: I have been puzzling as to why it has taken me so long to read this book -- a cozy mystery usually takes only a few hours or stretches out only over a couple days. I have concluded that it was just not that compelling, even though it was interesting. I liked all of the characte...

review 1: I've read the author's other series and am not a big fan, but if I have a couple of hours... I just could not get into these characters or plot by page 70. I thought they'd be a fun women's group who solve crimes/murders, but by page 70 nothing had happened. I didn't really feel ...

review 1: The books in this series are a quick read. I enjoy the descriptions of Charleston, South Carolina and one can learn a thing or two about the tea business. I have read 6 or 7 of them. The plot of each seems somewhat formulated and it is fairly easy to guess who the murderer is. Th...

review 1: I keep getting drawn back into these books even though the heroine is nosy and gets herself into messes that could be avoided by just telling the police what is going on but NO. Carmella is a witness when a television reporter is hung from a balcony during Mardi Gras. Then she b...

English
3.78 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I liked Fiber & Brimstone, not as much as the Tea Shop Mysteries. Mainly, I liked it because it is full of interesting characters, including the city of New Orleans. Trust me it is a character in the book, and in real life. I live near New Orleans and have been there many time...

review 1: I enjoyed this book. The characters are endearing and likeable on the whole, there are a few that aren't but then again you're not supposed to. The murders kept me guessing and frankly at the end the one still didn't seem to make sense to me, and some of the clues just weren't th...

review 1: Another solid entry in the series although the mystery element in this one is a little weak as Theo doesn't actually solve it. Theodosia witnesses a friend's murder but can't identify the killer and soon becomes the victim of attempts on her own life. Her associates, Drayton an...

review 1: Taking a page from my mom's playbook (which makes sense as she gave me the book) this is the first of this series that I've read, and the first of this author. It was a pleasant cozy, I agree with the comparisons to Nancy Drew (every chapter ended on a cliffhanger and she had au...

review 1: I have enjoyed this series of books and expected this one to also be very entertaining. I found it a little hard to get started but after reading for a little while, it gripped my attention so that I did not want to put it down. The story is based in a small town with a variety...
