Recensioner

It’s wasn't that this book was really, really bad, it's just that it wasn't any good. Dull is the word I would use. It was so painfully dull that within reading the first 20 pages I would have happily murdered every single person in Leavenworth; considered it compassionate euthanasia to put all of us out of our misery.

The only way this could have been a good story, based on the way it was written, was for the main character and narrator to have been the murderer; a serial killer hiding in plain sight while others are hauled off to jail all the while proclaiming their innocence.

The only somewhat interesting part of the book was Sloan Krause's past, or the mystery of. While virtually the whole of the book, at least 70% is about food and another 29% about the good, wholesome, tightknit, loving Faux Bavarian village and it's awesome people, the absolute kitschiness of the place, non-stop tourism and / or tourists (THE HORROR!), and craft beer. It was a total dud.

There seems to be no reason for Sloan to be looking into the murder of this city councilman. Just because Sloan is the town busybody and everyone supposedly confides in her doesn't seem to be reason enough. What, the murderer is going to confess, and then go... oh, shit, why did I tell Sloan, now going to get the needle! Seriously? And Sloan is forever saying she shouldn't get involved, yet still does. Annoying. Add to the fact that she is light years behind the cops / investigators when it comes to solving the case, but that doesn't seem to faze her. All around odd.

And Sloan's method of detecting consist of solely finding a suspect based on whatever cockamamie motive she can think of, and that persons jumps to the top of her most wanted list... until she finds another suspect based on her newest cockamamie theory that usurps them. The whole thing is silly.

This wasn't my kind of book.

This is another fun installment in the long-running and much loved Bakeshop Mystery series set in southern Oregon.

This time, Carlos's family, including his ex-wife and her new husband from Spain, are visiting for the holidays. Among other enjoyable family events planned, there are several set at the local ski mountain and lodge, including the annual Downhill Dummy event where the murder takes place. Naturally, baker Jules Capshaw gets involved in solving it.

This series features an absolute top-notch cast of recurring characters and, once again, a clever, involved plot.

Highly recommended for cozy mystery fans!!

(I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Net Galley, in exchange for a fair and honest review.)

This is the eighteenth Bakeshop Mystery, but the first I have read. In this episode, Ramiro's family is visiting from Spain over the New Year. Jules is busy with her bakeshop and planning things for them to do and see.

Events at Mount A, the local ski resort, will feature prominently. But during a midnight snowshoe trek, they see a guide lead two people off the trail and see the ski patrol come to rescue them. The next day is a much anticipated event called the Downhill Dummy. Local groups and businesses create dummies to send down the ski jump in anticipation of spectacular crashes. But things go immediately wrong when the same guide who led his group off trail is hit by one of the dummies and killed.

Now Jules Capshaw needs to fit a murder investigation into her already packed schedule. She quickly learns that the resort is in financial trouble and plans a fundraiser to help the owner make payroll. But is the owner on the up and up? Or does she have a hidden agenda? And what about the woman wandering around with a clipboard? And the environmentalist willing to do anything to stop the resort from selling off some land for clear cutting?

This was an entertaining mystery with interesting characters. Fans of the series won't want to miss this one. Newcomers, like me, will want to read other books in the series to learn more about these intriguing characters.
