A Half-Baked Murder
Published February 21, 2023
A Half-Baked Murder crossed my desk thanks to my latest subscription box, Aardvark. It’s a lot like BOTM, but it tends to lean more toward indie publishing, which is fantastic! I can’t wait to see what next month’s choices are.
Emily George needs a fresh start in her life. Apparently, that involves moving back home and getting talked into starting her own cannabis cafe. Yes, you read that right! However, before she can get too serious about the idea, a murder happens in what is otherwise a painfully quiet town.
If you’re in the mood for a cozy mystery with plenty of charm, look no further than A Half-Baked Murder. Just be warned – after reading, you may wish for a cannabis cafe in your own town, as I can attest from personal experience.
Overall, this book was a delightful and engaging cozy mystery. While the protagonist, Emily, has a tragic backstory, her character is infused with hope and resilience, providing depth without overwhelming the reader with emotion. I anticipate that her past will resurface in later books in the series.
The novel’s atmosphere was delightful, and I look forward to reading future installments. The secondary characters were a particular highlight, and I appreciated the hint of a potential romantic subplot. I can’t wait for more!
