It was ok - more like a 2.5.

I could have done with less relationship angst and "blessing the food" sprinkled over the meals like salt (but only apparently when there was a man present to do it, which was annoying).

Let me tell you what I liked.

I liked the fact that there is a spiritual aspect to this story. The entire cast of main characters are Christians who are open about their faith. They refer to faith on a regular basis in their lives.

I liked the fact that the sisters, Jenna and Carly are close to one another and willing to help one another any way they can.

I liked the fact there is humor in the story. Any time an author can include humor in a cozy, that generally

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for

This is another great Christian Cozy Mystery, I really like this book better than book 1 of the Sleuthing Sisters Mysteries.
I loved all the characters, welcoming familiar ones and loving new ones. I am glad Carly survived being nosy.
It was nice learning about Branson and seeing Arkansas again.
Intriguing was using verses from Proverbs as chapter headers, encouraging me to study Provers again.
I look forward to book 3' thank you for an entertaining time.

This was a fun, light murder mystery book. If you are someone who is semi-interested in the murder mystery genre but isn't looking for a "thriller", this is the series for you. This is actually the 2nd book of the Sleuthing Sisters. I enjoyed the light mystery and the religious insertations. I am more interested in the dark thriller murder mysteries but this was fun.

I like these mysteries! They're about 2 sisters that live in Arkansas, where I grew up. And, in this second book, they go to Branson, one of my favorite places to visit. (I have great memories of Silver Dollar City and seeing Kenny Roger perform a Christmas show :-)
This was a good cozy mystery. The Christian aspect is not overwhelming and it makes it easier to read. Its a good break away from the hard mysteries I read.

the religious aspects were not overwhelming and are part of the characterization. it is more than a few days since I read it, so unfortunately the details are fuzzy.

The climax seemed like rushed and there wasnt much of 'detecting' happening in the story.

It was a little slow at first, but it grabbed eventually. After that it was perfect. The ending will leave you shocked.
