I'll start off by saying that all 5 of the mini-mysteries in this book were very well written. However, I do think the title of the collection is a bit misleading, to say the least. None of the stories were humorous, and only the first one was at all related to food. Of the remaining 4, 3 were Westerns, starring the author's duo of Mick and Casey (apparently there are full-length books showcasing this couple). The last story was not really a 'mystery', per se, and was much darker than the others. I was hoping that all the stories would be 'light' or 'humorous' mysteries. They were indeed 'light' (In the best sense of the term), in that they were easy reads and there was no explicit violence, bad language, or anything that even the most prudish could take offense at (quite an accomplishment nowadays, IMO!). My personal taste does not run to Westerns, so I was disappointed, although, as I said up front, the writing was excellent. Just don't assume from the title that this will be a collection of 'cozy' or 'humorous' short mysteries. If you like Westerns, then go for it, you'll enjoy these for the price.
