I'll admit, I haven't quite finished this book. I read a couple of chapters, then get frustrated and have to quit for awhile. When I first started this, it wasn't long before I concluded this had to be a self-published book (and it looks like I was right). My biggest complaint with many of these is the lack of good editing and this was no exception. The formatting issues drove me nuts, but that was likely out of the author's control, but the inconsistencies (how can the same restaurant be in two different towns at the same time?), typos and grammar issues should have been corrected.
The main character was also inconsistent. She went from being a reasonably interesting adult to a ridiculously immature adolescent, especially when confronted by any reasonably good looking male. The other characters were forgettable and I found it hard to be interested in any of them, when I could remember who they were. I could also have done without the sporadic Fargo dialect. I found the behavior of some of the characters odd. For example, why would the policeman roughly shake Jennifer by the shoulders after she'd been in a car wreck and ask if she's all right? Makes no sense. There are a number of such instances. I also felt as if there was too much dead space, i.e. periods where nothing happened to move the story along.
Saying that, I think with a good editor, this could have been a pretty good story. The potential for a fun cozy series is here, but the author needs to find someone who really knows editing to help whip it into shape.
