I enjoyed it. The main character and her employee/best friend are fun and the two old folks in the story are pretty funny as well. One is hard of hearing and the other is a busy body who works for the local paper. The mystery kept me guessing until the end, with a really good red herring thrown in. I do wonder how exactly one can make a living selling two or three desserts a week delivered by antique ambulance - that would have to be a LOT of deliveries, wouldn't it? And how does she pay her employee?

It was funny in a way I've come to recognize as Carrie's own voice. It was sad, too, knowing that we'll never have new works from her. I loved Star Wars from the beginning but I fell in love with Carrie when she published Postcards from the Edge. Who knew the Princess was so damned funny? Or that dysfunction could be so endearing and funny? I will miss them both, Carrie and the Princess.

I wasn't completely sure I was going to like this one, but I did like Lucky from the start. They mystery was not bad and the soups and sandwiches sounded good. I am not a fan of all cozies but this one passed muster. Some of the secondary characters were not bad either.

I really liked this one. The mystery was hard to solve and I liked Darla, her friends and Hamlet, the bad tempered bookstore cat.
Darla inherited a bookstore from her great aunt Dee in NYC and she and her staff are getting ready to host a signing by an author who is all the rage with the teen set - think Cassandra Clair or Stephenie Meyer. And the author is killed right on front of her store.

Lots of investigating occurs and we get to watch.

My only complaint is the print in the paperback i got was too darn small!
