    There was a whole lot I liked about this book and a few things I didn't. Overall I enjoyed it and will read the next in the series.Lexie owns a small soup 'n sandwich cafe in a very small town in Wyoming. When the book starts her date is killed by a bullet while out snowmobiling. Tagged as a tragic hunting accident no one thinks much more about it (except Lexie) until her next blind-date, arranged by sister Lucy, is also killed. Now everyone wonders if Lexie is killing her dates, at least until Lexie becomes the target.The suspense and the mystery here were very well done. What I didn't like was the stereotype of the two sisters, daughters of a preacher. Lucy is the "good sister", holier than thou in a lot of cases. Lexie is the "bad sister" who got pregnant in high school and left the home town for 17-18 years, only to come home licking her wounds. There are glimmers of the two softening in their prescribed molds and that is why I'm willing to go on with the series because mostly the characters are great fun and I enjoyed the book

    I had to give this story up. It is just not my type of book. The sister who continually is pushing for the main character to date so she can make it heaven was so annoying that I would have murdered her if she was my sister. The idea that you have to be married in order to enter heaven is ludicrous. I was always under the impression you had to take Jesus into your heart in order to enter heaven. I realize that my Catholic education is lacking, but I don't think things could be more different from one Christian church to another. I wonder how that church deals with children who die? I've known quite a few lazy police officers, but I've never known one to not investigate an suspicious death as a murder just so they can go home and watch football. Oh, and the inept Sheriff just happens to be married to the annoying sister.The fat guy who shits his pants and thinks shoving his tongue down her throat on the first "date" is gonna get him somewhere would be my second murder of a character in this book. At that point I just had to abandon it, otherwise I was going to break my Nook.The eBook was formatted fine with no obvious errors in the 10% I read.

    In a nutshell, this book has a pretty good plot, but pretty weak characters. Lexi could be a terrific character, but is not fully realized. Her sister is annoying and illogical. However, Aunt G is pretty funny. Ms. Reynders did a good job of creating her fictional world and describing the things and places within it. If she was able to describe, or bring the characters to life as well this could be a very good story.Ultimately, the only reason I finished the story is to see if I had solved the mystery (yes, but not why). Although, towards the end I was rooting for the sister to be guilty just because she was such a pill.

    This ebook was free when I downloaded it from Barnes and Noble to my Nook library. I enjoy cozy mysteries so my rating for them starts with 3 stars. I dropped a star because this book exceeds the number of murders I think is appropriate for a cozy mystery. I recommend it only for fans of the author.

    A cozy mystery. Plot of story of two sisters attempting to solve was a bit much. Written so simply and the characters were not believable. While I did finish, I have no interest in continuing the series. I guess I like books with more depth. If you want a simple story, this may work for you. I have read other cozy mysteries and found them entertaining, but just couldn't connect.

    The mystery was okay, but I didn't like the way the sisters were characterized. The two sisters are the daughters of a minister. Lexie has given up her faith, but her sister is rigidly "religious"--she was a caricature of a believer and shown in an unfavorable light.

    Quite fun and well written. The overly Christian sister and her husband were really annoying, but Lexie and her daughter were well gran and Aunt G was probably the best thing about the book. A quick and easy light mystery with a rather strange ending...

    The book was very unorganized. Several pages contain the same storyline. The characters were too dingy. I read 35% of it. Very glad this was a free download.

    Cute cozy mystery. I will possibly read more of this series.
