Deborah Lynne CraftAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Take thyme to read this delightMarch 28, 2012Deborah Lynne CraftAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Personally I normally read mysteries with a little love, but usually there is a more serious tone in the over all story. The cover and title caused me to pick this book up, and then when I read the back, I saw Thyme for Love was a romantic mystery. It surprised me to find it written with such witt...along the lines of Kinsey Malone novels. I loved the way her two main characters had a relationship with the Lord as well. Her secondary characters were well written and brought depth to the story. Even the bird, Pedro, added mischief as well as a little excitment into the novel. Well written, Ms Meyer. Book two is on my list of books to read, so I can't wait for its release.
Kym McNabneyAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5THYME FOR A MYSTERYDecember 2, 2011Kym McNabneyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5THYME FOR LOVE by PAMELA S MEYERS is a fun, light mystery. Having never read this type of novel, I was initially confused by the casual, witty mystery. What later came to mind was Sherlock Holmes and the game Clue. Not more than a few pages later, MS. MEYERS mentioned that very thing. That's when it all clicked. Thoughts of who done it, in which room, with what, ran through my mind. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed THYME FOR LOVE, not being the genre I typically read. A true testament to how well it's written.
April Love is in need of a job, and her Aunt Kitty has just the job for her. But what she fails to tell April is her ex fiancÃ©e, Marc Thorne, works there. Now she is faced with the decision to quit a job she desperately wants or face the man who hurt her years ago.
Marc Thorne is just as surprised as his ex fiancÃ©e, April when she walks into the Rescate. It doesn't take long for old feeling to stir. But Marc has a secret he fears will douse any hopes he has of renewing their love. Convincing April they were meant to be together isn't the only obstacle he faces. When he's accused of murder, will she believe he's guilty?
The mouth watering descriptions of the food April prepares, sent my stomach rumbling. MS. MEYERS delivered countless cute lines as well as kept me guessing as to "who did it". THYME FOR LOVE was hard to put down as I attempted to figure out who the killer was.
My favorite type of novel is those involving a cowboy and a ranch, so of course Karl had me sitting on the edge of my seat, hoping he wasn't the killer. I can't wait to read the next two books in this series...And I'm hoping to see a cowboy or two.
AngieArndtnear Columbia, SCAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Thyme for a Romantic MysteryNovember 28, 2011AngieArndtnear Columbia, SCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mix together equal parts lonely chef, hunky boss and murder. Cover and simmer over an old flame. Sprinkle with a nosy aunt and serve for a wonderfully romantic cozy mystery.
Thyme for Love by Pamela S. Meyers carries you into a world where culinary capers meet murderous intentions. When April Love finds herself face-to-face with old flame, Marc Thorne, she almost turns down her dream job. But when her soon-to-be boss is murdered, she's drawn into helping Marc keep the business going and solving a mystery - whether she likes it or not.
Pamela S. Meyers' use of deep point-of-view and descriptive techniques drew me into the book and didn't let me go. The plot kept me guessing until the end while romance between April and Marc sizzled. And I loved the addition of quirky Aunt Kitty and Pedro the parrot to break up the suspense. 'Can't wait for the sequel!
This was a great winter read and would be a perfect Christmas present for the wannabe chef or mystery-lover on your list.
WinnieAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful start to a new mystery seriesNovember 16, 2011WinnieAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm such a mystery lover, and a romance junkie. So when I was asked if I wanted to review this book, I jumped. I can't pass up books like these. And I'm glad I didn't. Thyme for Love is wonderfully written and kept me guessing. It took every ounce of will to not jump ahead and see if I guessed right. (I guessed right, but the author threw in a nice big fat twist too I wasn't expecting!)
April is as spunky as her author--yes, I personally know and love the author, she's a dear friend--and Marc, in all his Argentinian ways, is the perfect complement to April. They're journey from passive aggressiveness toward each other to falling in love all over again was soothing play to the mystery surrounding them. I enjoyed this book, was my treat for myself on 2 Sundays after a long week of writing and working. I look forward to the next 2 books, and sort of hope there are more stores in the future.
GingerS2195 Stars Out Of 5Absolutely wonderfulNovember 15, 2011GingerS219Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I rarely give five star reviews, but this book deserved it.
It is an awesome book. I read the first page and was hooked. Ms. Meyers did an awesome job of incorporating Marc and April's previous relationship issues into the present. Their struggle to reconnect is apparent, as is their love for one another, but the obstacles in their way are immense. April finds it hard to trust Marc after he left her. Marc struggles to understand why April brushed him off. Misunderstandings abound. Trust, truth, time, and God help them overcome.
The "who-done-it" feel of the book kept me guessing throughout. First I thought it was this person, then that one. I'm not a very good mystery guesser, but even if you are, I think you'll like Thyme for Love. Up until the end I didn't know __________ did it. (haha, you have to read it to find out.)

Tell us a little about yourself. I was raised in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, the same area the fictional Canoga Lake in Thyme for Love is situated. I did not start writing for publication until well into my adult years, but once God sparked the desire, I've not looked back. I am very active in American Christian Fiction Writers, having served on its board for five years and am now the Genesis Writing Contest Coordinator, ACFW's contest for unpublished writers. In my church, I sign language interpreted for our deaf attendees for many years and now am involved in the multicultural ministry, focusing on tutoring English to the Japanese. I also lead a women's Bible study group in my home.
What was your motivation behind this project? I've always enjoyed a good mystery and love romance stories as well. I decided to marry the two and looked to a program that was on HGTV a few years ago called If These Walls Could Talk. I wondered what the walls of the many 19th Century mansions that dot Lake Geneva's shoreline had to say, but to allow myself more authorial freedoms, I set the story in a fictional town and lake a short distance away from Lake Geneva.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? That God truly wants to forgive us when we confess and repent to Him, and He expects us to do the same toward those who have offended us. He is also a God of second chances and can be trusted to make things right in His time.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was reminded again and again about forgiveness as I wrote Marc and April's story, not knowing that in my own life I would be called upon to forgive much in the same way April is in the story.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I find my greatest influences come from God's Word and also from life itself. Lessons I've been called upon to learn. I enjoy a wide variety of authors and cannot pin down a top favorite, but anything by Ann Tatlock, Deborah Raney, and Gina Holmes, to name just a few, are auto-buys for me. Often when I get "stuck" in my own writing, I'll pick up a book in the genre in which I'm writing and read a bit. Somehow that triggers my own muse and I'm able to get back to writing.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Watch for two more books about April and Mark in the On the Road to Love Series from OakTara. Also, I have Love Finds You in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (my hometown) coming from Summerside Press in June 2012.
