Series Sunday: Soul of a Killer

(Books & Biscuits Mystery #2) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.

"Murder. With the same cast of main characters. In the same place." ~ 10%

My Series Sunday pick is Soul of a Killer, the second book in the Books & Biscuits mystery series by Abby Collette. Fraternal, separated twins Keaton and Koby now run a combined bookstore and soul food restaurant. Though when it comes to solving mysteries in the small town, it is do or dine.

Books & Biscuits, located in the pacific town of Timber Lake, is open. Business is booming! Mama Zola, Koby's foster mom, has even become a resident of the small town and quickly becoming familiar with the other folks. Until Mama Zola and Pete, one of the bookstore's employees, bring a peach cobbler over to a local Bible study group and discover a dead body. Having both quarreled with the victim, they are both suspects.

What a major letdown! I was all ready to get lost in this cozy mystery only to be disappointed. Keaton and Koby were not in sync or even likable this time. The supporting characters like Mama Zola and Pete took over the story and was more entertaining but not enough. I don't understand why it just didn't vibe. Books & Biscuits is like the textbook cozy mystery setting. Yet this was such a struggle to finish. As a result, I am undecided whether I will continue reading this series. Phooey!
