    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! ...

    First off, thanks to #NetGalley and #Kensington books for the chance to read this one. I am woefully behind in getting my thought posted! I may have mentioned in other venues that Ms. Davis is probably my very favorite cozy writer...this book did nothing to change that opinion. This is...

    The Coloring Crook is the second book in the Pen & Ink Mystery series and I loved it just as much as the first one. Florrie is such a friendly and down to earth character that it makes me feel calm, relaxed and happy to solve the mystery with her. It follows a common theme with ...

    I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads Giveaway. This series has a lot going for it...books, art, fun characters, and recipes. I liked the majority of the characters. Flossie keeps getting into trouble without really trying. Mr. DuBois is quite the character as well even...

    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...

    It took me a while to get interested in this book. Although I enjoy the author's other series, I found the writing a bit stiff and the background "cold" in The Coloring Crook. By the end it had me engaged and I have already started to read the first book in this series. At the star...
