Rating: B / cozy holiday mystery
(#9 in the Key West Food Critic series)
With the groom being a police detective, crime and secrets are scattered all through the tale. And overall it’s a good story – the plot is clever and twisty, the characters nicely defined and the writing is adequate for a cozy mystery.
But (!) there’s too much romance and too much cooking chatter. It feels intrusive.
