In an Oyster Shell – A tasty mystery.
The Pearls – The mystery was well developed. I couldn’t figure out who did it. It was a perfect mystery that kept me guessing.
The cuisine mentioned in the story was delectable. It added an interesting element to the story that I liked.
The relationships between characters were really good. Ashley interacted with a lot of supporting characters and it made for a good read.
The Sand – The story lacked humor which I find essential in a cozy mystery.
