I love this series. I hope you continue writing more. They are fun and addictive. I can’t put them down.
but sadly bored me to tears. I abandoned ship halfway through the first one. Just didn't hold my interest at all.
Good read ....hooked on cozies!!!
Hadley, her BF Luke, her BFF Suz, and her twin brother Paul work on solving a murder in each book. Cute stories cleverly written with twists and turns that made it difficult to figure out whodunnit. Then one final clue is exposed and I would get an AHA moment just as Hadley would figure out who the killer was. Delightful books!
Continues to keep you reading for hours.....just one more chapter. LOL Great series to keep reading each day. Before you know it, time for the next book.
Fun characters in a quaint town where amateur sleuths regularly help out the local police in solving crimes. Thumbs up for this likeable series.
Lots of twists and turns on the mysteries and surprising person and motive at the end. Love the characters and their relationships with each other.
