    Overall, I give the Box Set 3.5 stars. Most of the characters aren't very likable and aren't well-developed. The police are incompetent. Raspberry Chocolate Murder--3.5 Stars This was an okay story. The mystery was good. I had the murderer figured out before the reveal. I liked that Anna didn't put herself in dangerous situations. The sub-plot of the mayor accusing Anna of murdering her husband added nothing to the overall story and was a distraction, IMO. The characters weren't well-developed.

The sub-plot of the mayor accusing Anna of murdering her husband added nothing to the overall story and was a distraction, IMO. The characters weren't well-developed. Cassie acted like a spoiled rotten teenager instead of a woman in her mid-thirties. Since I bought the box set, I'll go ahead and read the next two books in the series. Orange Thyme Death--3.5 Stars Again, the mystery was good. I've never read a cozy with vigilante justice/serial killers. Anna and Gino make a cute couple and he is an asset to the story. Nobody would let the mayor get by with slandering them the way Anna does. She would be suing the mayor. Cassie needs to grow up. She really gets on my nerves with her petulant, childish behavior. Meg being Cassie's daughter was a surprise. The characters are a little more developed but still lack depth. Apple Caramel Mayhem--3.5 Stars The mystery was lacking in this one. I mean, the man was stabbed in a room full of people but no one saw anything. Not very realistic, IMO. There were several suspects and motives. I wish it had been explained how John died so I could have had some idea about the mayor's slander. Now that the mayor has added Gino to her slanderous accusations, I really don't understand Anna and Gino not doing something about it. So far, the mayor has added nothing to the series and is nothing but a distraction. I wish Cassie would go back to Hollywood. She's an unlikable character, IMO.

    This was not a relaxing set of cozy mysteries. Emotions were always on HIGH! The main threatened to throw her daughter, who took time off to help during her cancer treatment, out over a granddaughter that had just appeared in their lives. One of the besties was always cynical, sarcastic and talked badly about others. The local authorities were horrible. The mayor should have had a lawsuit filed against her or a warning to cease and desist. Yes, I read the end interview with the character about w This was not a relaxing set of cozy mysteries.

One of the besties was always cynical, sarcastic and talked badly about others. The local authorities were horrible. The mayor should have had a lawsuit filed against her or a warning to cease and desist. Yes, I read the end interview with the character about waiting for later, nope, the mayor was over the line nasty and mean. When you don't see them stop it becomes stressful to read. The local police force would have benefited from Barney Fife, he was smarter. The most balanced and smartest of the group was the newly surfaced granddaughter and the retired chief of police. Almost everyone else had hidden agendas, emotional issues, vindictive personalities or were jealous and would stab someone in the back in a heartbeat. Then some would claim it was just in the line of work. (local news editor) Good editing, good proofreading and good location with details.

    Anna and the Firecrackers! Anna gets involved with at least one murder in each book. Her two best friends nicknamed the "Firecrackers" use their talents to help her. Her Movie Star daughter has problems of her own but does help her mother in the quest for justice. Anna and the Firecrackers! Anna gets involved with at least one murder in each book.
