- A Blooms, Bones and Stones Cozy Mystery, Book Four
Book 4 in this series is more romance than mystery. It has a mystery, though it’s rather weak and really isn’t all that interesting. It feels forced. This is a mystery/romance series, so book 4 had to have a mystery. Why not force it?
As it was with book 3, the romance feels more genuine and fleshed out than books 1 and 2 did. I did enjoy learning about old marriage quilts though. It brought back a memory of when I went to Centennial Village in Greeley Colorado as a kid and the women there were working on these types of quilts and teaching the class about them.
The narrator is good overall, but I’m always going to knock points for people who mispronounce basic words. “Onvelope” isn’t a word. Envelopes are called envelopes because they envelop something.
