I guess this thing is trying to be cute From what I can tell there are a number of these books and they all follow this formula A criminal in the little town of Bakerhaven accompanies his misdeed with the creation of some kind of cryptogram, with the idea that the local Puzzle Lady sensation will solve it for the police Except the Local Puzzle Lady Sensation is actually a bit of a fraud, you see she doesn t really know a damn thing about puzzles what she does is solve crimes Once again, I m well [...]

This was a quick read I bought a used hardback copy for 1 and had it read by the next day while on vacation Fun, funny, and quick read I hadn t read one of the books in this series in a while, but fell right into understanding the quirky characters Mr Hall portrays.

I ve read the entire Puzzle Lady series but book 5 had gotten away from me until recently.They were all breezy and enjoyable except this one something is off with the 5.The principal characters often don t sound or act like themselves, the premise is wacky, the conclusion a real shmazzle All of it is just plain weird.It s than a stretch to believe that one of the character s closest friends is getting married and she doesn t know It s also a stretch to think that a wedding that feeds several hu [...]

A very fun read Cora, with her rather laid back attitude to life and easygoing humour, is a little hard to identify with because she spends most of the novel detached from the reader, but it doesn t make her difficult to like in any way The same goes for Sherry she s quick and intelligent, and although serious, she provides the necessary balance for Cora s character The other side characters are there as ornaments than anything, which was a shame, because I would have liked to know about Aaro [...]

Interesting that I ve marked this as read previously, because I don t recall it now Well, I mean I recall it NOW because I just read it, but ah, never mind I found myself less endeared than irritated by Cora, and OK, mystery writers Here s the problem with ciphers and puzzles in your books I hate to break this to you, but many of us don t buy and retain your books We buy and return for credit on the next, or we get them from the library So we need to photocopy the silly puzzles in your book, or [...]

In this 5th book of the Puzzle lady series, Cora finds herself getting married again Raymond is a nice gent with a dubious past, but Cora is in love Also getting married is Sherry s abusive ex, Dennis He is marrying Sherry s best friend, Brenda, but Sherry knows why he is doing it and tries to talk Brenda out of it She isn t going for it and asks Sherry to be her maid of honor I liked this because of the two story lines going on at once It was a bit ridiculous as to the plot lines at times such [...]

I greatly enjoyed this 5th book in the Puzzle Lady series of cozy mysteries Cora is about to get married, for the umpteenth time, to a mysterious man from California, and suddenly Sherry s abusive ex husband shows up engaged to her best friend Before the nuptials can take place, Cora s fiance is found dead in his home with knife sticking out of his chest The plot is contrived and not at all based on anything close to reality, but it kept me engaged anyway right up to the end I did not appreciate [...]

Puzzle Lady Cora Felton is getting married again But the engagement has just happened when her husband to be starts receiving threatening puzzles As always, this book is fun with lots of stuff happening However, the ending is rushed, a common flaw of the series.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

5 in the Puzzle Lady, Cora Felton, and her niece Sherry Carter mystery series set in small town Bakerhaven, Connecticut It looks like wedding bells again for the much married Cora Felton when her mysterious fiancee is murdered Cora is know for her crime solving skills and is soon involved in solving what happened The tone is light with humor centered on Cora s character The story involves Sherry s former husband who is marrying Sherry s best friend adding complications.

Just started this book last night and finished it this morning Funny thing is that my Doctor recommended this series of mysteries It is light but interesting reading so that I couldn t put it down I am sure I will read of Mr Halls books in this series They have lightly humorous and get crazier as you near the end Cora is quite a character and she will get her man.

Typical easy reading murder mystery I liked the gimmic of having to solve puzzels even though they are solved in the book The negative is the traditional style of the main character explaining how she figuered out the mystery in the last scene I do not like key clues withheld from the reader.

A fun read a WAY fun read Cora is a hoot the plots and puzzles are fun, and Hall has a narrative voice that s funny without being irritating.If you like Agatha Raisin, you ll like these books even better Cora is very like Agatha, but much less annoying.

Two thumbs up for the Puzzle Lady This was a fun, quick read and made me want to read some of the other adventures of the Puzzle Lady so I can get to know the characters better The only part I didn t like was that it took over 100 pages to get to the first murder.

Lots of craziness in this one All the main players assembled for Cora s impending nuptials when Sherry s ex shows up out of the blue and oh the fireworks Curious to see how things will continue in the series.

A good cozy mystery I enjoyed working out the puzzles at several points in the book I was a little put off by some inconsistencies in the main characters relationships, but not enough that I didn t enjoy the read.

So glad the answers to the cryptograms were given as I am not good at those Interesting that the puzzle lady is really not the real puzzle lady.

I was disappointed in this installment of the Puzzle Lady Mysteries, compared to other books I ve read in the series This one didn t have crosswords, and I m terrible at cryptograms.
