Pick this up if
You want a fun, cute, engaging cozy mystery. You like an amateur sleuth with a penchant for getting herself into the investigation. You like culinary mysteries. You enjoy a compelling mystery with a lot of potential murderers. 

Don’t pick this up if
You hate it when the main character has a full time job but is never shown to actually do it. You don’t enjoy chick lits. You don’t like cheesy books.
