    2.5*This cozy mystery, set in Minnesota, avoids most of the pitfalls (or more accurately my pet peeves) of this subgenre by which so many of the recent examples I have read are plagued. The writing co...

  • Beth Peninger

    I started, and finished, this book quickly. This book is #5 in a series by Lourey called "Murder-by-Month" but it's the first book of hers, and the series, that I have read. And it wasn't bad, not at ...

    A guilty pleasure book. I lived in Minnesota for thirteen years, and one of my favorite things was the State Fair with its silly but sublime traditions. I especially loved the annual tradition where t...

  • Jenny (rapid tortoise)

    I liked it less than the previous 4 in the series (which I devoured). I guess it has something to do with the fact that the murder victim is a teenage girl. Other than that - a solid mystery. 3,5 star...
