Review of A Slice Of Murder



Not too much happens in the sleepy little town of Timber Ridge, North Carolina, —which is fine with pizza-purveyor extraordinaire Eleanor Swift. The spunky owner of A Slice of Delight is trying to mend her broken heart and could use a little quiet time. But when a late night delivery customer turns up dead, she’s in for just the opposite in this delicious mystery series debut, featuring pizza as the prima character . . .(Goodreads)




The characters were well developed and well rounded.  I really liked the fact that the two main characters were sisters.  I liked that they shared their childhood and family ties.  I thought that they were both strong women who were not afraid to take chances when it came to figuring out the killer.  They were also funny and some of the actions and conversations had me laughing out loud.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book, I felt like I was right there, watching all the action taking place.   I do wish that the book would have been a little more action based and a little less dialogue driven.  It seemed to me that the vast majority of the book was conversations between all the characters.  That is only my opinion and other readers may not feel the same way.

The mystery was well plotted and there were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through that it was very difficult figuring out who the culprit was.  

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a funny cozy mystery.  You should check it out.
