Simmer Down

Simmer Down

3 out of 5

I really didn’t like this one as much as the first in the series. This one was choppier and the murder really seemed inconsequential.

Chloe has finally landed her dream man, Josh Driscol, but while preparing for the opening of his new restaurant a rival club owner is found dead. Of course there are too many suspects and the story twists in so many different directions that the reader doesn’t understand what path the authors are trying to lead you down.

It was more like the writing team had no plan for this book and just kept going until they came to 300 pages and decided to stop. I sure hope the next one is better.

I spent a half hour at our local Mr. Paperback browsing in the "mysteries" section. They have a wonderful collection of "cozy series" books. This one sounded promising, let's hope the authors hit their stride again with the next installment.
