Poor Kylie, she tries hard, but unfortunately, cooking does not come easy to her. Lots of her “experiments “ end up on the Oops Board. Fortunately, for Kylie her friends & the community support her. Unfortunately, she finds herself involved in another murder, this one extremely grizzly. Fortunately, she has help with her investigating. Unfortunately, she finds herself targeted by both the police & the bad guys! There are plenty of humorous moments to lighten this chilling whodunnit. I am addicted to this series!

Loved the story, shows how a girl Kylie who lived in chicago, bounce back on her feet from being divorce and being ruined by her husband by telling lies. Finds herself in a small town in ky. Taking over her cousins eatery, and all the zany character's that comes to the eatery and involved in the investigating of crimes that involved her friends and even herself. Very entertaining, couldn't put the book down. You've got chaos mix with humor and to me that's winters style you find yourself loving the characters, and you feel like you want to be there in all the action that goes on .

Even though this is book four in the Kylie Berry Mysteries, it is the first one I have read and I loved it! It was a fun read with great characters, a good mystery with twists and turns that quickly became a page-turner. I really like Kylie and her interactions with the other residents of small town Camden Falls in southeastern Kentucky, especially Brad, Joel and Zoey. Cozy mystery fans should add this book to their must-read list. I plan to read all of the books in this series as soon as I can. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

I normally like to support other writers, but...this book badly needed proofing and editing. Things like "off-sight" instead of "off-site," "priming the well" instead of "priming the pump"--I really get bothered by people screwing up idioms, unless they've made the character who says it a particularly dim bulb on purpose. I wish I could say more good about the story line and the characters, but the main character owning/running a cafe when she can't cook just really does not work for me at all. I don't buy that the police would consider someone a suspect because a con man tried to blackmail him, especially with the attempt in this case. So from the start, I couldn't really enjoy it. A. R. Winters, I wanted to like your book and support your effort, but I just can't. I really am sorry. Please get a good proofreader and editor. It will be money well spent and help move your writing up quite a bit. most of my concerns could have been easily fixed.

I really enjoyed this book. I have read the others in the Kylie Berry series. Kylie is a divorced owner of a cafe who is not a good cook. Somehow she figures out how to cook enough to sell food to customers by having a discounted Oops board and making recipes from the internet. She has 2 suitors- one is Joel who owns the newspaper and the other is Brad a cop. She likes them both but is not ready to commit. Joel is accused of murder and Kylie and her computer expert friend Zoey investigate to solve the murder. They ruffle lots of feathers and almost get killed themselves. There’s a new cook to help her named Jonathan and Patty is back as is favorite customer Agatha. All in all a good plot and lots of action and likable protagonist. I received this as an ARC

A cute and quirky cozy mystery. This is part of a series, and while I have not read the previous books, I had no problem following this one. There is some character development that I assume was played out in the books prior but other than being curious about some of the relationships, I don't feel like I was missing out. The Protagonist is a fairly new divorcee who moved to a small town to start fresh, and like most cozies, she ends up getting involved in a murder investigation. She has a small group of friends she can rely on, and they are each unique (some a little more colorful than others) and each play a small role in the story. There were a couple spots where it seemed like the story jumped ahead a little quicker than what I would have liked to have seen, but nothing major. There was also a couple scenes that while a victim, the police arrested her for no apparent reason... and none was ever given. (Of course the so called charges never stuck.) I don't know if there was something going on that I missed out on in the previous books, or what, but both those instances felt a little harsh if the only reason was because she was "a busybody sticking her nose in where it don't belong." The book is clean and safe for most ages. There is some drug use talked about and some mild violence. It reads quickly, and easily.

*I volunteered to review an ARC of this book.

This was my first book by A.R. Winters, so it was a good test to see if you need to have read books 1-3 in order to understand everything. And no, it turned out it was fine. Some references to prior cases, but most persons were well introduced.

I had high hopes for this book. I had thought I would love it. But it never reached the high level I had expected; I was in two minds whether to give this an ‘OK’ or a ‘like’.

On the positive:
+It had a good pace;
+It was a pleasant read;
+It had a nice vibe.

On the negative:
-I haven’t laughed out loud once. If you state on the cover that it’s a laugh-out-loud mystery you create certain expectations and they weren’t met;
-I didn’t like how Kylie was stringing along two men. Yes, I know there is this whole reverse-harem-hype going on; doesn’t mean I have to like it;
-The overall feeling I had after finishing was: nothing was very realistic.

I still gave a ‘like’ because the book did give me a few pleasurable hours. Entertaining, yes. So, the benefit of the doubt. But there are better cozies out there.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through Hidden Gems and voluntarily posted an honest review. I received no remuneration for it.
