I did think she was very slow on the uptake when it came to Briana and the list. Maybe that was the point, though, that the reader knows before the heroine. I usually don't figure out the mystery in a cozy til close to the end, so it was a nice change for me (wink), to be a little ahead of the heroine. I didn't kn...more

Once again this series satisfies. Blaize Clement died, and her son finished the book. Kudos to him. This book seamlessly fits into the series.
The author is now deceased, which was not acknowledged in the jacket flap or book, which also bothered me. Apparently her son will now be writing the series. That should be interesting.
CONS: The plotting could be a bit better, e.g., the "big" clue was WAY too obvious, as was the "surprise" in the last chapter. (I do not believe in spoilers!).
Anyway, I figured out part of the mystery before the end of the story but not the whodunnit part. That was a surprise!
I used to live in southwest Florida so the setting is a favorite for me.
