Review of Killer Green Tomatoes


Killer Green Tomatoes by Lynn CahoonTitle:  Killer Green Tomatoes

Author: Lynn Cahoon

Series: Farm to Fork Book 2
 
Genre: cozy mystery

Rating: 4 stats

In Killer Green Tomatoes the second Farm to Fork Mystery by Lynn Cahoon Angie just wants to focus on getting her resturant fully open she doesn't want to get drawn into another murder investigation. But that becomes wishful thinking when the cousin of her sous chef becomes the main murder suspect.   Now in order to get her sous chef back without any family drama she will have to solve a murder and fast. 

I loved this one more than the first book in the series. It moved faster than the first book I am guessing because the main characters were established in first book.  I do suggest that you do indeed start with the first book in the series first, Who Moved my Goat Cheese?  This book is great for fans of cozy mysteries with animals, food, cooking and restaurants. 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. All  opinions expressed are mine alone.

Review of If the Coffin Fits


If the Coffin Fits - Lillian BellTitle:  If the Coffin Fits

Author: Lillian Bell

Series: A Funeral Parlor Mystery book 2
 
Chapters: 15

Genre: Cozy mystery

Rating: 3

If the Coffin Fits is the second book in the A Funeral Parlor Mystery series by Lillian Bell.  Desiree Turner thought she had escaped her small town and the family business. But when your last name is Turner and your family owns Turner Funeral Parlor its easier said than done. She's slowly getting used to being back in town, but she's still on the lookout for something that will get her out of the town. But then a murder lands in her lap so to speak and she has to figure if this murder is actually tied to a natural death that happened after. 

Her family and even the local cop want her to stay out of it but Desiree is just too stubborn to let it go. She's determine to solve the murder and the mysteries surrounding it even if it kills her, and this time it just might.    If the Coffin Fits its' really your typical cozy as the main character is quite a few years younger than most woman in the cozy's and funeral homes don't tend to be the setting of many cozy mysteries, but it is still a quick and enjoyable read for those who like cozy mysteries.   This book is a fairly quick read I was able to finish it in one setting.   I suggest starting with the first book in this series, A Grave Issue. 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
