I haven't read any of Nancy Bell's books in years and yesterday I longed to hear a little Southern talk. I am downloading audiobooks from the St. John's Co., FL library and get to hear the story with the accented voice of the reader. Certain books are especially good this way and while this book is a lightweight, I love it because the down home dialect reminds me of many summer vacations in Mississippi.

A nifty cozy series set in Texas. I enjoyed the premise and the main characters. I look forward to reading or listening to more of the series as I find the books. I can definitely recommend.

I picked this up for a "Food / Diet" mystery theme and thoroughly enjoyed it. The setting and characters are quirky and homey, very fun to read.

I couldn't finish this book. The Biggie "formula" has gotten stale for me. I want to read a book from which I will learn something.

very short and quick. slightly undeveloped. probably better if I read the previous in the series.
