I can’t seems to get enough of the books from the ‘Hometown Mysteries’ series. This is the second book that I’ve read in the series. The first one I’ve read was ‘Missing Mabel’ by Nancy Melh.
I absolutely love Nipped In The Bud by Susan Sleeman. It’s intriguing, ironic as well as breathtaking. I love the romance that buds in the story. It did not overshadow the mystery in the story.
If I were to rate this book, I’d give it a 4. I recommend this book to those who loves a good mystery-romance kinda books.
