English Trifle A Culinary Mystery #2Breanna's boyfriend Liam is heir to both the family title and the family estate of Southgate where everyone seems to have a secret or two When the body in the sitting room disappears Sadie and Breanna are stranded at the estate until the police can clear them to leave With their departure delayed they might as well solve the murderArmed with a jogging whistle her personal recipe collection and an un I didn't like this one nearly as well as Lemon Tart For a fluff book I'm probably analyzing it too much but I really felt like it was an unbelievable plot with too many angles most of which didn't really seem to matter in the end anyway that was executed poorly I think a good mystery should have the reader guessing and leave them just a trifle confused but in the end things should begin to start clicking leaving the reader with many aha moments and recognizing the significance of various characters Instead everything seemed forced in this book like the author didn't have enough time to really sort out the details herself For example all the times Sadie sneaks down to the kitchen and insists on helpingreally those just seemed like the author didn't have any other bright ideasI also felt like the overall writing uality went down from the previous booktoo many pointless details too much pointless dialogue etc As an example one of the details that really bugged me was when Sadie changed the ring tone on her phone to Stevie Wonder's song I was sure that her phone would ring at just the wrong moment blaring out the aforementioned song but nothing came of it so why waste a paragraph telling us about it? I guess maybe it was an attempt to develop Sadie's personality? Also I didn't like the English setting because it seemed like the only knowledge the author really had of the country was from a couple visits herself and maybe reading a book or two It just wasn't believable to me and some of the English details seemed like the author saying See? Look I know about EnglandIn the author's defense I couldn't put the book down for the last fifty pages but in the end I really was disappointed But will I be reading the next book? Umyes So I guess that says something
