    This too is an excellent read. I was kind of surprised by some of the twists and turns, but hey, that's what makes a story good. This series is quickly becoming one of my 'hot off the presses' series - books I MUST read as soon as they come out! Love this one Ms Maxwell! This too is an excellent read.

    I really enjoyed this book. We got to see Kate work more as an investigator and less like a chief in this book. We see Kate and Dina working together and sharing information without any contention. I could see how they would have been friends in school now, the characters have grown so much over the last few books. I enjoy how much of the shop I get to see in the book. My constant complaint in cozy mystery baker books is that we never get to see the staff in their store. This book definitely inc I really enjoyed this book.

My constant complaint in cozy mystery baker books is that we never get to see the staff in their store. This book definitely includes the staff, and since they are lovable characters it is quite nice. The mystery is interesting a hits a little close to home when it comes to how the person was murdered. I must say that it is a very easy way to kill someone like myself. It is really interesting to see what the plan was and how the characters interacted. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to the next book.

    A mysterious man is found dead No one knows who the stranger is, they only know he is dead. Trying to discover his identity, his reason for being in the hotel gazebo and how he died are intriguing.

    Good addition to the series I wasn't sure I wanted to continue this series, after book 3 felt a bit phoned in and sloppy. This book got back on track with an interesting crime and better character development. 4 1/2 stars and on to #5.

    Good read This book is as much fun to read as the first three. I am enjoying seeing how the characters develop. Kate's budding romance is a nice little side story to go with the mystery.

    Maxwell's Sky High Pie Cozy Mysteries have reinforced by new attitude towards e-books. My only quibble is that I'm not sure that I'd call them cozies -- Kate Reed, the protagonist, is a former Chicago PI and she becomes involved in some situations that, to me, go beyond cozy territory. Given a lot of the series I've been reading lately -- and how they're marketed -- I'm not sure that "cozy" really means cozy anymore. That aside, I like Kate Reed, I like the pie shop and I like her small town in C Maxwell's Sky High Pie Cozy Mysteries have reinforced by new attitude towards e-books.

    Light Interesting concept . Very many people involved , connections. Interesting personalities. Small town events. Connections, knowing each others or someone that knows and can fill in others background. Simply interesting personalities to engage your interest.
