Another sweet mystery ...
My favorite scenes in the book are where Tess talks to Lenny and Cat about their feelings before the wedding. Tess shows that she really cares for the 2 of them and that they will be fine together. I like how she has taken both Lenny and Cat into her make shift family. They work well together.
Muffins and Murder is the 3rd book in the Sweet Bites Mystery series. The story continues as Tess comes across another dead body. While she really doesn't want to get involved in the case, she ends up looking into it anyway. With the help of her best friend Honey, her pastry assistant Lenny and his fiance Cat, Tess finds investigates the murder.
Again, Ms. Justesen writes a solid mystery tho this time I could sense who the killer was earlier in this book compared to the previous 2. I still enjoyed the story very much and was satisfied with how the book ended. The subplot of Tess's romantic life was nice too. I want to find out how that goes. Hopefully there will be a book 4 in this series.
Ms. Almand does another fine job with the narration of the story. The vocal characterists of each characters are consistant from the previous 2 books and she continues to draw you in. The warmth of Ms. Almand's voice is pleasant and helps the book to keep its 'cozy mystery feel'.
I would recommend this book to my friends who like a good mystery. I look forward to listening to more Sweet Bites mysteries as they are written.
