My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book is a real lightweight. I put it as a cozy mystery, but there isn't much mystery about it. The villain is pretty clear even from the beginning and local law enforcement should have figured that out right away instead of having to depend on Hannah.
There are so many ways to make this book better and I think that is what bothers me. There are more plausible ways to give the reader and our amateur detective clues without too much effort. Also there are better reasons for the characters to get into dangerous situations than the ones given.
I don't expect cozy mysteries to be overly realistic, but this goes too far with the clumsy plot moves. The recipes are about the only redeeming feature.
