I love dual time line books and the author did a great job with this one. There’s a wonderful mystery threaded through both times. The characters are well developed and you find yourself getting lost in the story. This is the first book I’ve read in the series, but it worked well as a standalone. However, it was also good enough that I will go back and read the earlier books and future books in the series.
There are tense moments while the crime is trying to be solved. But the depth of the new and rekindling relationships with Juliet keeps things lighter. I really enjoyed the story, the delicious food descriptions, and the mystery.
