Boring mystery. The women should have found out who the killer was instead of eating cake and shopping for sales at discount stores all the time. 50% off Murder was not worth reading. And, I wouldn't recommend reading it at all.

My first Belle book: Adorable. Read it yesterday between chores, but couldn't remember this morning who died. :-) Took a minute, but it all came back. Laughed out loud several times, and like the characters very much--had no trouble remembering the "Stephanie-Plum-type" scrapes they got themselves into, just who dies... The "romance" part of this reminds me of Sandra Parshall--40 year old women who, in relationships with men, have all the emotional maturity of a 14 year old girl. The brand name dropping was wasted on me, but would probably set some of my friends hearts racing. I am planning to read the rest of the series.

Very quick read. Most of the new cosies just don't meet the standards of the old one. Love the other comments about this particular book and agree with most of the comments. I wouldn't bother reading another one by this author.

Below average. I guess these cozy mysteries have increased in popularity because of the bad economy. Good premise, bad execution. Some of these characters are too stupid to live & lousy detectives, too. And some of the saving tips are lousy, too.

I know all these perky-heroine-small-town-romance-with-the-good-cop-loyal-circle-of-girlfriends-recipes-in-the-back-of-the-book mysteries are written according a strict formula like Harlequin Romances, but I think this one was written by a machine.

"1st in a new series." Definite focus on the bargain hunting, and a bit of relationship nonsense - so a new kind of "cozy?" Worth a quick read.
