    Not a bad story but I didn't enjoy it as much as the first one. Florrie's sister is annoying and I'm really not liking her character at all. I do like the other characters though and can't wait to see where this series goes! ...

    Thanks to Kensington and Goodreads Giveaways for this book! Krista Davis was one of the first cozy mystery authors I started reading when I started getting into the genre, and while I still love the Domestic Diva series, the Pen & Ink Mysteries are proving to be a real treat. Fl...

    I enjoy every series written by Krista Davis and eagerly inhaled this, the second in the Pen and Ink series. No wonder I'm a bit sleep deprived, I always want to read just one more chapter. Florrie has become one of my favorite characters. She manages a lovely bookstore, lives in the c...

    This is such a fun series! This is book #2, but it can easily be read as a stand-alone or as an introduction to the series. Main character Florrie is an artist, a coloring book creator, and works in a book store in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. She also has a knack fo...

    Too many characters. Florrie manages a bookstore in Georgetown, which is a terrific area of DC which is not well used at all in this second installment in a series-but you can read it as a standalone. I'm still wondering where that bakery is and I'd like to know what restaurant overloo...

    This is the second book in the Pen and Ink Mystery series. I enjoyed this story, but it wasn't my favorite. It was very confusing and the end seemed unbelievable. Maybe it's just me, but it didn't seem very realistic. I am curious about the first book and will be purchasing it to read ...

    I loved the first installment of this series, and this second installment has me completely invested in it! The characters and setting, although seemingly similar to other stories, really are uniquely different. The mystery was perfectly executed, not even really giving a hint on the e...

    The Coloring Crook is the 2nd Pen and Ink Mystery by Krista Davis. For the most part it's an okay book. I do feel like there was a little too much going on. The plot jumped all over the place - one minute it's about the main mystery, the next it's about one of several past mysteries, t...
