Another nice read from Spicetown but would prefer a less "manly feel mystery" which has been ever-present in this series. Would like to spend more time with Cora and Violet and Peggy and Dorothy and some of the other older women in the community even Miriam. Maybe spend a little more time with just day to day activities and less "police talk"! ...more

A perfect cozy!

Spicetown is always fun to visit and I love the characters.....they feel like old friends! The author has created a cozy town filled with mystery, friendship, quirky supporting characters and two main characters - Cora the feisty Mayor and Conrad the police chief who makes sure the Mayor stays out of trouble as they solve cases. I enjoy their "banter" and friendship!

I'm looking forward to the next mystery!

The annual Easter egg hunt is coming up as well as the deadline for submitting income tax returns. Who is going to put on the Easter bunny suit this year? Why isn't the main tax preparer in Spiceville in his office during his busiest time of year? Why is Miriam Landry so meddling and antagonistic over the new subdivision she's selling lots for?

An interesting read involving the friendly, laid-back town of Spiceville and its citizens. The mayor is stressing over the missing Easter bunny and, havin

Taxing Times

This sixth book in the Spicetown mysteries continues with another crime committed in the small town in Ohio. Regular characters gear up for the Spicetown Easter Egg Hunt but a murder victim takes center stage. All the stories in this series portray the everyday lives in a small town where people support and encourage each other and true friends really exist.

Another engrossing read

The plot is very clever and heartwarming and kept me in suspense all the way. I love that the book focused on Easter and used that as a backdrop to finding out what happened to Joshua Hart.

Great read

Interesting and helpful too. I thought the idea to reuse the Easter eggs by having the children them in for candy or toys was great!
