This book was great fun, it had a great mixture of a cozy mystery and modern flair. I am COMPLETELY in LOVE with the setting... this awesome town separated by an island divided between USA and Canada. They celebrate both countries' holidays, it's just so charming. I have to Google it and see if it's a real town, cause I need to go have tea with the Queen too. I'm barely cognizant of what is in a kitchen, much less vintage things. So it was pleasing that the author kept my interest despite that. I liked most of the characters and was glad that there weren't any glaring cliches. The ending is a bit cheesy, the heroine kept getting the "bad guy" to talk (at length... I mean, they blabbed everything!) and it got overboard quick. The villain(s) could have been better herrings, they kept skulking into random chapters for negligible reasons other than a reminder they were going to pop up for the climax.
