review 1: This book is the first in the series, I really enjoyed it.While Pricilla is helping out her Son ( at his Hunting Lodge )..a Guest dies after eating one of her tartlets. She is determined to find out her committed the murder, and starts putting together clues while asking the Lodge's guests questions... ( including the victims wife ) Meanwhile, she is starting to realize her true feelings for her long time friend, Max.
review 2: If I had noticed that this was a Christian mystery novel, I never would have requested it from paperbackswap.com. But, as it stands, I didn't notice it and it's a shame. I don't mind a little bit of religion in novels, but I need for it to be VERY subtle. However, in this case, the author even mentions in her blurb that she sees writing
... moreas an extension of her ministry. For me, that is NOT a good thing. It was far too preachy for me and I just did not like the book. If you enjoy mysteries with a Christian theme, then you will likely love this book. If you don't enjoy that, then just steer clear and save yourself the trouble. I wish I hadn't read it. I hate leaving such a negative review for a book, but it can't be helped in this case. Sorry! less

I thought it was a cute book... a simple fast read. Just a story I could relax and enjoy.
This book was a fast read! Enjoyed the characters and the plot. Looking forward to more!
Okay mystery. Terrible editing and I wasn't thrilled with the religious overtone.
Didn't hold my attention. Didn't read very much of the story.
