I had fallen behind on this series, but wanted to pick up Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Murder because I had fond memories of the earlier books!
I don’t often read cozy mysteries, but occasionally, I like the change of pace. My biggest struggle with this book was that the mystery part was kind of a sidebar. The story is filled with yummy sounding treats (which is GREAT), but the mystery part fell flat. To me, this is more of a foodie fiction read than a mystery.
So, if I approach this as a foodie fiction read, there are some good things. The recipes all sound amazing! The story is an easy read that won’t cause you any angst or worry. The characters are likable and engaging. So, as a cozy mystery I feel it missed the mark, but as a general fiction story about food, it is pretty solid.
authors like HY Hannah, Diane Mott Davidson, Leslie Meier…then you will probably like Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Murder!
