A Catered St. Patrick’s Day–review

I celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by reading this eighth book in the Mysteries with Recipes series by Isis Crawford. I like how it’s a little different from a typical cozy mystery, since it has a dad who sleuths with his daughters–and they’re bakery owners/caterers in their day jobs. The dialogue is fun and kind of reads like a TV show would. I plan to start the series from the beginning eventually.

My Goodreads review:

A Catered St. Patrick's Day (A Mystery with Recipes, #8)A Catered St. Patrick’s Day by Isis Crawford

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading this mystery featuring an ex-police chief father and his two daughters as a sleuthing team. I really want to start this series from the beginning to fill in a few recurring character holes and to find out what exactly happened to Sean to make him unable to drive. Out of context, I got the general idea, but it’s always good to read from the beginning. I wanted to read this for one of my challenges and thought it was cool to actually finish on St. Patrick’s Day.

I had read one of the later books in the series, but somehow I think I liked this one better. I really love the banter between Bernie and Libby when they’re questioning a suspect on behalf of a client. The book was very dialogue-drive, but some of it was really funny! There was no shortage of suspects here, and I didn’t guess who the killer was until the clues started falling in place, basically I knew because Bernie and Libby had figured it out.
