  • Cookbooks, Tarrot Cards & Stones lead to murder!

    A great book with very intriguing and interesting characters. I really must go back and read the entire series as this book is the eight in the series and I want to get to know the characters even better. When one of the shop owners is murdered, other shop owners start looking at each other as the possible villain. The gals at the Cookbook Nook, a shop I would love to visit, decide they have to find out who before chaos ensues! The story was well written and plotted in a manner that had me staying up late turning pages to find out who did it! While I did enjoy the book very much and don't feel that I was lost by not reading the previous book, I do want to go back and read any others in the series that I missed so I can spend more time with the characters while I wait for the author to write another book for the series!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Kindness, humor and wonderful characters

    Sifting Through Clues opens with Crystal Cove celebrating Book Club Bonanza. A mayoral promotion fills the town with droves of book club members, seeking the entertainment provided by the savvy town merchants. The Mystery Mavens, Jenna's book club, is putting on a progressive dinner event. The highly successful event comes to a halt with the discovery Ivy. Stabbed with a rose quartz shard, she is ritually positioned, lying among various crystals. Why is the bonzai included? Jenna is more concerned with Bailey's pregnancy and her plans for her wedding; others draw her into seeking answers. I appreciate that Jenna does not compete with the police. In this series, she and Cinnamon, Crystal Cove's Chief of Police are friends. Cinnamon, does feel compromised, however, as her mother is a prime suspect. Gerber provides enough alternate suspects that the true culprit is not easily discovered. Gerber is very good at world building. Crystal Cove seems like a real place filled with true to life people. Problems are not always easily resolved. Motives, reasons for secret keeping, feelings of self doubt are realistic. Similar to works by Lucy Burdette or Miranda James, kindness, honesty and humor are values held by most of the characters in this series. Many authors feel 'written out' by book eight. This is not true for Daryl Wood Gerber.

  • Worth the read

    This was my first book by this author but I really enjoyed it. I loved all the characters and the interactions between them all. The mystery mixed with the book clubs, food, and small town charm were well developed. Well worth i

  • LOVE this series

    There’s always something going on in Crystal Cove and Spring is no exception! From Book Club Bonanza week to Spring Fling, to Bailey and Tito getting ready to welcome their baby, to Jenna stumbling onto yet another dead body. Yep, same old, same old in Crystal Cove…and I couldn’t wait to read it all! When a local shop owner is found murdered in her home by the ladies of her book club, Police Chief Cinnamon finds her mother on her list of suspects. Throw in a visit from Cinnamon’s long lost father who left her and Pepper when she was a baby and a town full of residents who are victims of cyber extortion, there’s a whole lot of clues and trails to follow. Another fantastic entry in the series, and a potential cross over into the author’s French Bistro series, will keep Daryl Wood Gerber fans on the edge of their seat as they savor another fantastic visit to the Cookbook Nook.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great Story!

    Jenna Hart, proprietor of the Cookbook Nook and Nook Café, is ready for the Book Club Bonanza week that has come to Crystal Cove. She has stocked her bookstore with juicy mysteries and delicious cookbooks. When her friends arrange for a progressive dinner party, she can’t wait to discuss her latest read. But, things become deadly when someone is found dead at the last stop. Can Jen sift through the clues to find the truth? This was another fabulous mystery from a great writer. I loved how the main character pursued the truth after being coerced by her loved ones to start the investigation. Several great characters were introduced, which added red herrings and suspects to the wonderfully twisty plot. Even though this book is a part of a series, it could easily be read as a stand-alone novel. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
