Book Review: Much Ado About Muffin

And the cozy mysteries just keep on coming. Much Ado About Muffin by Victoria Hamilton.

I don’t know what to say about this one. It’s another one I read all the way through but not with any real joy. It was ok. The mystery was easy to figure out and some of the clues….well there were many opportunities for the amateur sleuth to apply some logic but she never does. I’d like to think the author was saving the deduction for the big reveal but since we hear the main character’s thought process constantly….

I couldn’t really identify with the main character either. Her problems were just too far a field from my own maybe? I don’t know, I had trouble buying into them. They keep referring to taxes she has to pay but she already has possession of the house she inherited and in the US the executor pays the estate taxes before the inheritor gets the property. I don’t know. I suppose I am over thinking what should be fluffy reading but I like my books to follow factual lines.

℘℘℘ – Three Pages, it was readable. I won’t get more books in the series although there are several others.

  1. I totally agree that even fluffy reading has to have basis for its major points of conflict. Any story must suspend your disbelief. If it can’t do it by being factual, then it better do it by being so entertaining that you can let it go. Sounds like this genre isn’t setting a very high bar for quality. Maybe your mystery you started would be stellar in that marketplace with barely a rewrite. Haha…not sure if that’s a good or bad thing? But I’m sure it was very snarky to the genre…sorry.
