Genre: Cozy Mystery
Actual Rating: 5 stars
If you are new to cozy mysteries and want to give the genre a try I highly recommend starting with this series! It has been quite a while since I have been able to sit down and 5 star both books in a cozy series but this one deserves it! The heroine/sleuth (Mimi) is a pure delight! I love her personality, attitude, and the way she goes after solving mysteries that end up falling on her plate. The mysteries themselves can somewhat be predictable, although some may not be able to figure it out until the very end! And the recipes? SCRUMPTIOUS. I have never in my life wanted to cook french food but after reading about these delicious dishes? I know what I'll be making for dinner for the coming days.
This is a cozy mystery series. This means that the person who solves the crime is an amateur. Readers become sleuths right along with the characters and try to figure out the killer with the clues provided. This is also a culinary cozy which means a lot of the book is surrounded in food! Recipes are provided at the end of the novel for readers to try out if they like.
Now, what you should know is that this is NOT a series of standalones. Most cozy mysteries aren't. They follow the same sleuth throughout the series. Mimi, the main character in this one opened her own French Bistro in the previous book and is still carrying on with it in this one. Unfortunately for her, someone is murdered and her head chef is a suspect! Mimi will stop at nothing to clear her friends name. Even if it puts her in danger...
