If it weren t for the fact that I got this from NetGalley I most likely would not have bought this book I thought the last book about Ross really bit the big one see my review of Banana Cream Pie MurderI see that a lot of people really love this book so while it s not my glass of wine it may be yoursThis book tries to explain in depth why Ross took off shortly after the wedding to Hannah keyword tries And it does sort ofOkay pros and cons of this bookProsIt is a cozy and simple book nothing complicated about it at allIt has cats in itIt has cool Minnesotan phraseology in itIt has great snowy weather in itIt has the usual character s in itIt has food in it a LOT of foodIt shows Ross as a real nutcase InterestingThere is no swearingThere are no exchanges whatsoever of any kinds of body fluids No sex not even kissingThere is an interesting sort of cliff hanger It has a lot of foodrecipes in it and this time not all the foods are cookies or barsConsThe discussions of food can put you in a real food coma literally How the heck do they eat so much and how the heck do they NEVER make a new cookiemuffinbaregg dish that never comes out crappy or burns or people just don t plain like it It would be a little realisticThe police work is so simple that I would think that this is taking place on an Amish farm somewhere And of course Hannah doesn t listen to the cop when finally a murder at 80% happensThe recipes take up at least 50 pages of the Kindle version my estimation since this is an ARC I m going from So while you are paying for 300 pages of mystery that is not what you are getting and it showsThe minutia is enough to drive one crazyThere is a cliff hanger of courseNo new character growthSorry but you are going to have to make up your own mind on this one
