    First I ve ever read of this series although I have another one in Mt TBR it wasn t bad but it didn t really do a lot for me either Like quite a few cozies I have encountered, I thought the main character Angie was a bit lacking in the common sense department I was a bit intrigued by her policeman boyfriend Don t think I will go out of my way to read this series though.

    Some people do not like the secluded house type of mysteries, but I do Angie and Paavo are at the pre opening of a historic house inn, located on a cliff overlooking the sea in Northern California Angie has been hired to draw up the vegetarian local food soybean based menu, and Paavo agreed to go with her The cook does not allow Angie in the kitchen, and is found dead the next morning That is when the storm hits, and a nasty mud slide means they re isolated in the house This is an older mystery, [...]

    I am enjoying this series, well written, but I will admit getting annoyed with Angie sometimes when she does stupid things and gets both herself and her boyfriend in unnecessary danger.

    I enjoyed the mystery and boy what a tangled web it was I had a hard time getting into the book At first I thought this was going to be like Ten Little Indians Also Angie didn t endear herself to me The characters were exaggerated stereotypes It was a good mystery though, even if I wasn t attached to the characters All in all I did enjoy the plot The murderer surprised me.

    A classic murder mystery set today Everyone is trapped at an inn by a horrible rain storm One person is missing while another is found dead Could the crimes have been the result of all the horrible food being served
