I picked this up mainly for the cover art, never having heard of the author or the series before. Definitely qualifies as a cozy mystery. I found it tedious and very slow moving . Much attention to minute details and the story seem to drag on and on until the end. All theaction takes place in the last thirty pages.
I noticed the author has written 20 other books in the series. While they may interest other readers, I will not be joining them .
Overall impression, not good, not bad. If you're looking for a lazy time waster this might be the one.
