    “Some people might think we’re kind of strange to believe that cats can be helpful finding clues to a murder.” — Courtney “Not long ago, I was one of those people.” — Angie “You know what? So was I.” — Courtney This is the third book in the Sweet Cove mystery series I’ve enjoyed, having read the first one, then skipping forward to the tenth, both of which I really enjoyed. I decided to go back to the second, and read them in order when I’m in the mood. It is the continuing story of the Roseland sis “Some people might think we’re kind of strange to believe that cats can be helpful finding clues to a murder.” — Courtney “Not long ago, I was one of those people.” — Angie “You know what? So was I.” — Courtney This is the third book in the Sweet Cove mystery series I’ve enjoyed, having read the first one, then skipping forward to the tenth, both of which I really enjoyed. I decided to go back to the second, and read them in order when I’m in the mood. It is the continuing story of the Roseland sisters: Angie, her twin sister, Jenna, Courtney, and Ellie. In the inaugural entry, along with their cat, Euclid, the sisters helped solve a murder in the small town of Sweet Cove, Massachusetts. It seems the sisters, like their grandmother, have a certain gift, a supernatural intuitiveness, and a connection to places and things which allow them to perceive danger, both present and past. Their cat, Euclid, also has an uncanny gift. It’s very light where the supernatural element is concerned, however, nothing dark or unpleasant, as you might extrapolate from the covers of these warm cozy mysteries. In the second entry, Angie is waiting on the deed to the Victorian house she inherited in the first entry, and the check for $75,000 which will allow them to start renovating. Angie is moving her Sweet Dreams Bake Shop into part of the Victorian, while her sisters have been able to move in with her, to pursue their own dreams. Ellie is still reluctant to embrace or explore her gift, as the other sisters, especially Angie, has begun to. Josh Williams is back in this one, and a romance is blooming with Angie. Tom is stopping by for coffee as often as possible to see Jenna. It’s all nice and sweet, and bereft of the over the top silliness so often found on the pages of similar series. The series, in fact, is sort of a leaned out version of this sub-genre, retaining the sweetness, and a light, bloodless, easily solved mystery. It is refreshingly bereft of the eye-rolling moments so associated with this all too often mind-numbingly frivolous sub-genre. That’s not to say there is a meaty mystery here, or meat at all. But it’s unfair to apply the standards for a conventional mystery to these things, as too many readers do, in my opinion. They’re more a nice place to visit. When they’re good, as I think this one is, they’re populated by nice people we like visiting once in a while, and there is some sort of premise — here it’s the girls’ inherited gift — which coupled with the setting, make them as enjoyable as the covers suggest. Ellie is dealing with the Foley’s allergy to cats in her first week having the B&B open, while Courtney has been working at the Candy shop for Thaddeus Finch, a cantankerous man who soon finds a knife — or rather it finds him. Chief Martin knew the girls’ grandmother, who had a reputation for helping police as far away as Boston, so he asks the girls to help by tagging along. Yeah, it’s like that, but you have to roll with it, because as previously stated, logic and reality are not what you’re looking for in the first place, when you’re reading a series where cats have an almost sixth sense, and a light dusting of the paranormal exists. When Victor Finch arrives, he seems to be the opposite of his grumpy brother, and it turns out he has a bit in common with the sisters. There is some nice backstory concerning the recipe book his brother has which had made him a world class confectioner. There was also a violent incident between the brothers, and some business about some very valuable paintings. Angie’s baking skills, and what gets infused in them, provide a some very funny moments between the mystery solving. Robin’s Point comes into play again in the second entry, and the girls’ find a new cat who may also have some vague magical abilities. But what about Thaddeus Finch? Who wanted him dead and why? There is some excitement involving a car trunk, and a rescue in the nick of time at the end before everything is solved. Angie’s suspicions about attorney Jack Ford from the first book take a detour, and promises that the series will now settle in, just as Angie and her sisters are settling into the Victorian and their respective futures. It’s a nice atmosphere, not overdone, with a little romance, also not overdone. A very light mystery in a very charming setting. I enjoyed this one and I’m looking forward to tackling the third at some point. The Sweet Cove Mysteries are quick, easy reads and make a nice break from meatier books. When a book is attempting to fill a certain niche, and succeeds as well as this, it ranks high for me. As long as you know what you’re getting into, and know what not to expect, these are really pleasant and tremendously enjoyable. A nice niche filled to near perfection.

    A cute little mystery that takes place around 4 sisters running a bed and breakfast. The mystery was nicely paced and I liked it a lot better than the first book in the series. I liked that the paranormal element was not just used in aiding to solve the mystery but also added a funny element :)

    I'm really enjoying this series a lot. I love how this one continued on about two weeks after the previous book ended. Handy tip though: Be sure you read these books in order. If they're all like this one was, the previous killer was talked about several times. And it's best for getting to know the characters and their relationships with other characters. I feel like this town's story will build with each book like a TV show. Again, it was a sweet and lighthearted read and not super easy to figur I'm really enjoying this series a lot.

The showdown was great, and I love how Angie and Courtney are finally using something that Nana had told Courtney about when Nana was still alive. I like the continuing mystery of Angie being curious about Prof. Linden's father. When I read all the blurbs of the future books and started seeing two cats on the covers, I was happy to read about that addition in this book. And I got my curiosity taken care of about something else as well. On to book three!

    You have to suspend belief in this book as the paranormal elements are a bit stronger and prevalent. I am not a fan of cats, especially cats who act like humans, understand humans and actually help investigate murders. However, the sisters are a pleasure to read about and i enjoyed learning more about their powers.

Sometimes I get mad when a book ends like that but in this series, it intrigues me and makes me crave the next book. The mystery was well-written and I did not guess the killer. Overall, a cute, short, quick and easy read.

    With the paranormal element becoming more prevalent, this series is definitely reminiscent of the Blackmoore Sisters.

When they arrive at the shop, the lights are off but the front door is open...I know...I know but yes, the girls go in and find a body....however, this swings into a new character in the book series who will end up surprising you. Angie finds she wants to solve the murder, she learns secrets of her family's ancestry, and starts freelance baking until her own new bakeshop can be built. The cat, Euclid gets a friend and the surprising action scenes continue. Are the girls psychic or not? This is a great read and I found myself having to read number three...hope my batteries hold out.

    Another entry into the not so quiet town of Sweet Cove. Can this quaint town handle yet another murder? How much do you really know about your neighbors? The Professors cat from book one has a new feline friend that danced right into the sisters world, there is something special with these cats and their sixth sense does it help heightening the sixth sense the sisters are learning?

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Another fun little mystery. I enjoyed the characters in the first book, so I moved on to the second in the series. This book further delves into "powers" the characters may have which was only hinted at vaguely in the first book.

I do enjoy how the relationships and love interests are included, but not rushed. Two of the main characters are still on flirting terms with their interests after the second book (ok, there is a date for one of them), but I like seeing the slower progression of the relationship when so many novels seem to jump into it rather quickly. Here, the murder mystery takes precedence along with the developing "powers" of the characters as the main focus. I'm enjoying getting to know the individuals in their quaint little town and I look forward to the next installment in the series.

Suffice to say that the ending was exactly what one would expect - totally unbelievable. Just drop a box of cat litter on your foot and call it a day.

    Murder So Sweet Book 2 of the Sweet Cove series has Angie and her sisters running a B&B and investigating the death of a candy store curmudgeon. This one was much better than the first, a great plot with more than one dimension to it, pacing that kept the story moving.  I thought the end was still a little abrupt and the murder wasn't solved so much as confessed.  Still, it's a cute series with some improvement from the last book, so I'll happily put this on my series-to-watch list.

    I really wanted to like this book, it's a cozy murder mystery with paranormal themes. Unfortunately, everything in Sweet Cove is so saccharine, so simplistic, so neatly tied, so boringly G-rated, it made me yearn for an Agatha Raisin character to upset everyone. I took me a while to work out why it didn't gel, I think it's the overly formal and stilted dialogue, the lame paranormal stuff (headaches and cats who save the day), and too many plastic superficial main characters - I need a stiff drin I really wanted to like this book, it's a cozy murder mystery with paranormal themes.

    Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future. 2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author. 3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up. 4 sta Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star...

    I must admit that the paranormal slant to these books makes for interesting reading. I feel for Angie as she and one of her sisters discovers our dead victim. It is also refreshing to find stories where the person who finds a deceased person is not automatically classified as a prime suspect and placed at the top of a list of suspects or considered “the only” suspect.

A new person enters the picture and will eventually decide to make their home in Sweet Cove. Love is in the air as well for two of the four sisters and the sisters discover that a suspicious minor character in both books so far, is really a nice person.

    Hooray! Rarely have i been so intrigued by a series as i am with this one. The murderer was a surprise, as were the motive and the method. The new character Victor French adds a satisfying element to the storyline. If you want to be lost in a mystery for an afternoon, choose this one. You’ll be delighted that you did!

    Another enjoyable book Second in the series, and this didn't disappoint. This time, I didn't guess who did it, which always pleased me, lol. Characters are building up nicely, a little bit of witchiness which is always good for adding a little spice to the mix. Again, an enjoyable read.

    No spoilers here. This is a good series to read if you want a genuine cozy mystery free of violence, swearing, and smut. You can enjoy them as stand-alones or if you're traditional like me you can read them in order.
