If you like mystery you Must read this one

I have not read a book this good in a while. Devereaux Sinclair has moved back to the small town she grew up in to help her grandmother who is sick. She gets pulled into a murder investigation when a gift basket she created is found at the murder scene. The story is realistic and fun. The characters are enjoyable. The dialogue is fun and witty. The mystery was solved at the end of the book by the author and not me. If I could give it 10 stars I would. The only thing I do not like is that I have to wait while for the next book in the series.

Definitely not what I expect from Denise Swanson!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't know. I have been listening to the Scrumble River series and thought I might also enjoy this. I enjoy mysteries, but this had a lot of throbbing body parts, touches that sent shivers down someone's back, and other things that you don't usually find in a good mystery. Another reviewer was correct when she said it was 1/3 mystery and 2/3 sappy. I think Ms. Swanson may have been trying to make it sexy, but failed miserably.

Has Little Shop of Homicide turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not the cozy mystery genre, but I'm not really sure what genre this belongs to. I definitely will not check to see if there is another book in this series.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment! I enjoyed the Scrumble River series from Denise Swanson and hoped this would be as good. It seems that Denise Swanson is trying to go in a steamier direction.
