The St. Valentine’s day Cookie Massacre
Hatter Cove Gazette Mystery book 1
By Elisabeth Crabtree
Currently Free (6/7/15)
It’s Valentine’s Day in quiet, cozy Hatter’s Cove, Florida and food columnist, Kat Archer, has been assigned the event of the year, the grand opening of Miss Dolly’s Cookie Jar and Sweets Emporium.
What begins as a run of the mill, albeit tasty, assignment turns into something much more dangerous when one of the Cookie Jar’s employees is poisoned.
Now Kat is chasing the biggest story of her life, while trying to catch the eye of her handsome editor and avoid becoming the killer’s next victim.
I actually bought this a while ago, before the start of this year but never got to it till now. Initially before reading I thought it was interesting. Like my last book it was a mystery. From the descriptions I was expecting the employee to end up dead during the grand opening.
I liked this book, it was relaxing for me again. However I couldn’t quiet put the mystery puzzle pieces together until the very end. Which I really liked. A lot of things made sense, a lot of things seemed to continue to move this and that way leaving me on my toes.
There wasn’t an extreme level of drama, although there was a good sense of ‘whats next’. Leaving me wondering what would happen with each new nugget of information. And when I thought everything was figured out the ending was a bit of a shocker for me. This book made me think, there wasn’t a chunk of romance and the entire thing made sense. I enjoyed this book a lot.
