    Yet another book I m glad I paid little or nothing to download onto my kindle The story itself was OK, but where was the editing How can an author change from first person POV to third in the same paragraph and no one catch it

    A cozy mystery about a middle aged woman, DeeDee, starting her own catering business On her first catering job, a man is killed In hopes of getting her pay check which is nonsensically being held up by the staff of the school where she catered , she decides to try to solve the mystery This premise, of course, is just ridiculous At least the author, speaking through DeeDee s husband, acknowledges the silliness of this premise, about 2 3 of the way through the book But, that doesn t really make it [...]

    Needs editing.Needs editing.I wish I could give a better rating but the author would write one thing and then a few pages later contradict herself when Dee Dee arrived she placed a linen tablecloth on the table After the meal she put leftovers and dishes in coolers a.d linens in a laundry bag, leaving the room cleaner than when she arrived a few pages later her husband was assisting in packing up supplies including the dishes and the linen napkins The receptionist told Dee Dee that the murder vi [...]

    I enjoyed this story A woman, DeeDee, is trying a new career in catering Her first job was a luncheon at Eden Academy It is a snooty, private school Everything was going well After the luncheon ended and DeeDee was cleaning up, a scream was heard Everyone headed towards the noise The head of the school was murdered Shot through the heart with a bow and error Everyone seemed to hate him, so there were plenty of people of interest that could have killed him And then his assistant was murdered No o [...]

    I enjoyed this book The author did a solid job introducing a slew of characters in a small space amount of time, but she flushed them out well, developing even the minor characters if you read close enough There were some editing mistakes throughout, though I m not sure if that was deliberate or if this was an advance copy I read the electronic edition from kindle.Dee Dee s sleuth skills are amateur, of course, but that s how it s written how many times does her husband tell her this isn t one o [...]

    A great cozy mystery read Dee Dee decides she wants to start a small catering business Her first job is at Eden Academy a private school It s supposed to be a retirement luncheon for June Bug one of the teachers But June Bug says its her birthday party She isn t retiring After the luncheon as Dee Dee is cleaning up a scream is heard the head of the school was murdered in the basement shot through the heart with a Bow and Arrow No one really liked him so there are plenty of suspects And than his [...]

    I figured out who did it as soon as they appeared Spoilers The entire book is of red herrings but there is not a single hint that Maxie the bus driver was the murderer How did I figure it out A good mystery would have you think Aha at the end because the author put in subtle hints of the real murderer A bad mystery would have the author say Aha, you didn t suspect because the murderer had no real motive and was a background character Maxie was a bad stereotype fat and crass I gave it 2 stars bec [...]

    Fun cozy mystery Catered to Death is the first book in the Midlife Crisis series and the first book I have read by Marlo Hollinger I was kept guessing until the end as to who did it An fun, enjoyable mystery that can be read in a couple of afternoons I am looking forward to reading by this author.

    It s been quite a while since I read an author with so much skill in adding a group of characters to the scene and keeping them so well developed as individuals Such a delight to meet so many characters instead of being handed an inventory of them All in all, it s a good Cozy Mystery story with very logical circumstances for each little twist, and kept me engaged all the way to the end.

    This book kept me interested I liked the unique characters and the story It had a comfortable feel and moved along easily I could resonate with the nervousness of starting a new business If I had to put this book down, I wanted to go back to reading it It was an easy and fun read.

    This was ok but nothing special and to be honest I am glad it was a freebie as I would have been a bit disappointed if I had paid for it.

    Just not very good She fumbles around and never figures anything out anyway Plus the author mixes up characters a couple times, really confusing things.Overall just very blah.

    This book was enjoyable Have to wonder if anyone proofread this book So many typo mistakes, kind of took away from being able to concentrate on the story But all in all a cute book.
