Review: Crepe Factor
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book, or my review itself.
Title: Crepe Factor
Author: Laura Childs
Publication Date: October 4, 2016
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Recommended If You Like: cozy mysteries, settings as characters, mysteries that make your mouth water
It's the holiday season, but scrapbook shop owner Carmela has just seen a man die at her feet. The victim has ties to both the restaurant scene and the local environmentalists, and Carmela's ex is a prime suspect.
What I Liked:
I loved how Childs made the setting of New Orleans absolutely come alive. It made me want to visit there right away, and eat eat eat!
The characters are also very vivid, and Childs does an excellent job of making each character unique and memorable.
Anything I Didn't Like?
The title didn't really make sense. Crepes don't come into the book at all to my memory.
The solution to the mystery seemed a bit out of nowhere, but Childs did still make it work.
I've enjoyed the other books of Childs' I've read more. This one was enjoyable, but merely okay.
