    Writer's retreat fun!

    Cat, Shauna, and Seth are back with the next writer’s retreat and a murder mystery. For a quiet town, Aspen Hills sure seems to have a lot of murders and with Cat’s Uncle Pete being the police chief, she’s always in the thick of things, and when a celebrity chef is found murdered in the local bakery, Cat finds there is a connection with an old friend that has her looking at things a little more closely. The fifth in the series, this is the best one to date! It could be that I’m familiar with the series, but I think it’s mostly Lynn Cahoon’s writing…she’s one of my must read authors and reading this book will show you why. Lots of suspects and red herrings that will keep you reading late into the night. I finished this one in under I day, I just could not put it down. If you’re a cozy lover, put this one on your summer reading list!

    Good Read

    3.5 stars Sconed to Death is the fifth book in the Cat Latimer Mystery series, by Lynn Cahoon. I really enjoy these cozy mysteries. Perfect bubble gum for the brain. I also really enjoy the characters. Cat Latimer is an author who runs a writer's retreat out of her large Victorian house located in Aspen Hills, Colorado. Shauna, a chef, is her best friend and Seth, her boyfriend, is a man-of-all-trades. The mysterious Dante, with mob ties, makes a reappearance. Cat who is in her late twenties was married, divorced and subsequently her ex died under suspicious circumstances. Her parents moved away from Aspen Hills which leaves her uncle Pete, the Chief of Police, her only relative left in town. Pete is contemplating a move to be closer to a lady friend who lives in Alaska which doesn’t sit well with Cat. In this, she needs to grow up! I like these character interactions. Overall, a good read which follows the formula of cozy mystery and ends with a recipe about scones! I really enjoy Ms. Cahoon’s writing. Her novellas are really good reads.

    Cat Latimer is on the case!

    Sconed to Death is the fifth novel in A Cat Latimer Mystery series, but it can be read alone. The information a readers’ needs to know is incorporated into the story. Cat Latimer is a former English professor who inherited her ex-husband’s Victorian and turned it into a writer’s retreat. She offers retreats one week a month and spends the rest of the time writing her young adult series. Cat is fortunate to have Shauna and Seth working with her to make the retreats run smoothly for their literary guests. Cozy mystery writers from Chicago descend upon the Victorian for a week of writing, research, critiquing and workshops. When popular Denver chef, Greyson Finn turns up dead at the local bakery, Cat cannot help but look into the crime (despite being told by Uncle Pete and others to not investigate) especially when she learns Jessica Blair, an old friend, is a suspect. I liked that the writers in the retreat were cozy mystery writers. I enjoyed their plotting sessions, discussing reviewers and ratings (three stars is not bad rating), and their inventive book titles. The title session was particularly humorous. It is nice that there is a new batch of writer’s in each book with a variety of personalities and situations. The kittens were adorable and with the writers’ words, I could picture them scampering about getting into mischief. Shauna receives a large batch of apples and she comes up with some creative as well as delicious recipes for them. There were several viable suspects in Chef Finn’s death, red herring and good clues. Those of us who read a copious amount of cozy mysteries will not find this puzzle perplexing. I wish there had been some action in the book which would have helped the pacing. I also tired of Cat frequently being told to stay out of the investigation. My favorite phrase came from Miss Applebome who said to Cat, “Try not to get yourself killed. I’d hate to be the one to tell your uncle what you were doing.” Sconed to Death is a cozy readers delight with a dead chef, an inquisitive writer, appetizing apple creations, and impish tabbies.
