  • Hoping it would be better than the first...

    I read Mousse and Murder, book one in An Alaskan Diner Mystery and gave it a three star rating because Logan just listed facts about Alaska instead of weaving them into the story, and none of the characters were engaging. But since it was the first in the series and the first that I had read by Elizabeth Logan, I wanted to give book two a read, just in case it had improved. Obviously by my two star rating it hasn’t. I really would expect better from an author that has five other series out under the names of Camille Minichino, Margaret Grace, and Jean Flowers. So why am I being so harsh to Fishing for Trouble, besides the fact that I expect more from an author that has so many books out? Logan talks about Charlie’s cat, Benny, a lot. Now I love cats and hope to one day be a crazy cat lady, but at least a fourth of the book was talking about feeding, playing, snuggling, talking to, or missing Benny. That time could have been spent working on character development, which is once again, lacking. The only character that gets interesting towards the end of the book is Chris, who suddenly turns into someone with spy or special training knowledge. Cool. Completely out of left field though. And not enough to make me want to read book three. In the first book I thought it was a fun change to have the local sheriff actually include Charlie and the gang in his investigation, instead of constantly telling her not to get involved. I realize it’s a work of fiction, but at one point Charlie and Chris have one of the witnesses write down their information, get it notarized, and send them back home. Um. Without putting it past the sheriff, and saying something like, “Well, if they have to come back and testify at least our part is done.” If you read this series, or other books by the author, I honestly hope you enjoy them more than I did. That’s the nice thing about reading, there are so many books out there, everyone can find something they enjoy… although this is not the case here for me.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Interesting characters

    cats, Alaska, murder-investigation, family-dynamics, friendship, amateur-sleuth, cozy-mystery, law-enforcement, small-business, small-town***** When Charlie Cooke left law school, a career as a chef, and a supercilious ex-boyfriend to go back home to Elkview, Alaska, she knew that she'd assume the running of the family diner but not the rest of it. The trooper in town is an old family friend, her parents are on errands out of state, and something really weird happens with a young customer who works at the fish plant. He suddenly dies of mercury poisoning and another summer help from the plant goes missing. Lots of misdirection and red herrings in this great story that is perfectly designed for cat lovers. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Berkley Publishing Group via NetGalley. Thank you!
