    Sandra Holladay

    I read two of the four books hoping the writing would get better, it didn't. The author 'told' us nearly everything, there was very little 'showing'. It's difficult to stay interested in a book when you can't get involved in the story. Not going to bother with the other two books. I love the premise of 50 something women sleuthing, but the main character, Suzie, kept being dumb. I like my heroines to have at least a modicum of smarts. Her friend Mary was smarter, but never over road Suzie. I read two of the four books hoping the writing would get better, it didn't.

    You get what you pay for Ms. Bell needs to spend less time writing and more time editing. The stories are predictable with grammar and punctuation errors (not to mention wrong words) on every page. The books were free. Every one in a while, a free book is a wonderful surprise. Not this time.

    Ann Bahil

    All the elements that should make up a good series: beachside b & b, two single female friends in their 50s to fix it up and run it, mysterious happenings. But the books need more editing and seem to be all writing to a formula. Ok, but not really good.

    Cute who-done-it This is the first four books in the series. Mary inherited an old mansion, converting it into a bed and breakfast with the help of her best friend Sylvia. Together they run into multiple problems: murders and drug runners. Solving the problems they found new friends and helped clean out corruption. A fun read for anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries and short stories.

    The writing was a little wooden and I struggled with that. I found some of it a bit tongue in cheek and there was way too much description of how darn jolly their friendship was. Felt a bit forced at times and the plot would have benefitted from the time put in to stroking the characters and probably fleshed them out better. Solid plots but just not expanded enough. A Sunday afternoon read really. Lots may love it so don't be put off by me. The writing was a little wooden and I struggled with that.

    I really enjoyed reading about Suzie and Mary's adventures in Dune House. Being I am about their age, I could relate to them both in ways perhaps others cant. I highly recommend this set to anyone who enjoys mysteries as well as very likable characters. The history of Dune House makes these stories very fascinating. Who doesn't love to hear stories about the old days and the memories of the places. I really enjoyed reading about Suzie and Mary's adventures in Dune House.

    Investigative Reporter Can’t Stop Retirement doesn’t kill the curious nature of Susie. She inherits a B&B, but can’t let the mystery of why her uncle left it to her instead of his own son. She doesn’t trust anyone, but herself to solve anything so the mysteries keep coming. Great middle-aged sleuthing!

    Sharon M. Turner

    Great set of stories. I will be looking for the rest of this story line and anything else by this author. Cindy Bell has a great way with words. Her descriptions and dialogue make you feel as though you were part of the plot. Each book finishes the story line but leads you into the next book. Give this a try for a good old fashioned cosy mystery.

    Kerry Smith

    I really enjoyed reading these entertaining stories of Suzie and Mary starting their b and b and the characters that they meet. From the time Suzie inherits the house to the end of book four immerse yourself in the picturesque town and the people that live their. Really looking forward to the next one

    Midlife Career Change For Two Suzy and Mary had been best friends since the met now they both need a change. Mary I’d divorcing and Suzy inherits a former bed and breakfast that they plan to rehabilitate and run. Lots of mysteries to solve and new lives to experience. Fun stories and quick reads. Great series and author. Recommend.

    Truly Wonderful Series I kind of read these out of order but after reading a later one in the series I absolutely had to start from the beginning. Let me tell you it was worth reading. It's a series I plan to follow. Truly Wonderful Series I kind of read these out of order but after reading a later one in the series I absolutely had to start from the beginning.

    Sweet mysteries, ideal beach reading These are great books to read at the beach. Short sweet mysteries that will entertain you without bogging you down. Each book is a very easy afternoon read.

    The premise of the story was intriguing, thus 2 stars instead of 1. The writing must get better, as this series has a dozen books; I couldn't get through the first one. Good writers paint me a picture with their words. This book was entirely telling, rather than showing. Boring... The premise of the story was intriguing, thus 2 stars instead of 1.

    I really wanted to like this box set, but just didn't as much as I had hoped. My biggest problem was the telling, not showing. Also, needs a lot of editing. Fun premise, I like the 50 something ladies as sleuths, but they took a lot of unnecessary risks. I really wanted to like this box set, but just didn't as much as I had hoped.

    The whole book set All the four books in this boxed set where: once you start reading you can't stop. There are plenty of twists that you think you know who done it but it then makes you think again. The whole book set All the four books in this boxed set where: once you start reading you can't stop.

    Average The initial premise and characters have a lot of promise, but this set of short, forgettable stories falls short of holding long-term interest. The author includes some pathetic foreshadowing in each, so not much mystery here.

    Short stories This set is a very fast read. Each story is a very typical cozy mystery. It's hard to imagine a person like Suzie being as gutsy as she is in the stories. It was entertaining.

    Very enjoyable I really liked the pluckiness of the characters. Suzie and Mary were a fun balance of determination and caution. They are a fun team both in running the bed and breakfast and solving problems. Very enjoyable stories.

    So Sweet These are very sweet and enjoyable. “Cozy” is the perfect term for this series, at least so far. I wish I could continue it. It has been a delightful diversion from my usual.

This is a "very cute" series of stories. But not romantic in the least. Loyalty is the predominate emotion up until the very end.

    The first book was the best. The rest of the books were formula books following the sequencing of the first book. Very predictable.
