Why this book?:

I've wanted to read this series for ages, but I actually picked up and started reading this book out of literally boxes of books (I've been moving them from one floor of the house to another) on a whim.


What took me so long?  I was hooked from the moment I started.  I liked the main character, Katie.  I liked the set-up.  I liked seeing the major overhaul that Katie was starting both at the Artisan's Alley and the whole Victoria Square.  I liked that the characters weren't all you saw from first impressions (and that was true for multiple characters).  In other words, there were many likes.  I did suspect the murderer, but that doesn't bother me as long as it's not too obvious. 

Overall this is just a great cozy mystery.  The kind that gives the subgenre its name.  I look forward to reading more of the series.  I know I have a couple more to catch up on.
