I liked the story. The two main characters Lucky and Jack plus the regulars who drop in at Spoonful. You might guess the killer ahead of time but it is still a good and quick read. Look forward to the next book in the series.
The plot is good.The general idea is good but the characters are soooo bland.Not sure if I will read another from this series.
This is definitely a cozy mystery. The story line has great potential, and I definitely warmed up to several of the characters. The main character Lucky is a bit too immature for my test and jumps to a lot of emotional-based conclusions without giving a lot of though. Dr. Elias is almost too good to be true but still it is sweet. I would like to see more in the series and I do like the setting and most of the supporting characters introduced so far, including Grandpa Jack. I also learned that a severe lack of B12 can mimic dementia. While the recipes at the end looked interesting, after looking at them more closely, I was disappointed to see they weren't very exact--for example, 2 C of frozen spinach is not the same as 2C of fresh spinach.
I tried to sympathize with the author since this was her first book. However, it seemed to take her a long time to get to the ending. Sort of like she kept thinking of new ideas to include in the mystery. I must confess I skipped about 25 pages and was pleasantly surprised to learn who the killer was. Good luck in the future - I know she will get better.
Enjoyable first book in a new mystery series. The soup is good, the plot is interesting and not completely apparent, and it was satisfying following the clues and logic and reaching some conclusions. Lucky is a bit impetuous in her attempts to find the murderer and clear her restaurant and her chef, but she is likable. I'm looking forward to the next mystery in this series.
