    Four books in a boxed set, one of each of in four of this author's mystery series. I loved all of them, absolutely. All of them had this underlying sense of humour, the dialogues were witty, the protagonists were people a reader could easily identify with, not least because they were not the usual late teens to twenty age group, but way way older, like I would think, a lot of readers of this genre of literature. Some had a slightly melancholy undercurrent, but on the whole, the books were humorou Four books in a boxed set, one of each of in four of this author's mystery series.

Some had a slightly melancholy undercurrent, but on the whole, the books were humorous, the protagonists sympathetic and realistic, the plots interesting - something a reader could follow, having the same clues as the characters, but not without some twists and turns -, and the narration style was just brilliant, in short, everything came together perfectly to keep me glued to the pages. I want to read all of the book in these series.

    Couldn't put it down I am a big fan of the author and am trying to read all of her books. I've been hooked on her books since I read the first one and they are all well written and entertaining.

    Cozy Mysteries Fun enjoyable mysteries with a little paranormal touch. Each book has a different setting and different characters - I would have enjoyed a series with the progression of the same characters, but these stand alones were still nice.

In “Ghostly Paws”, the town of Mystic Notch was shocked by the discovery of its beloved librarian dead, with no idea if it was by accident or something more sinister. The thirty-three chapters was set at a fast pace with light humour, flirty at times. A charming story with communicative cats, likable characters and magical atmosphere. “Bake, Battle & Roll” opened at Lakeshore Resort with a domineering, abusive head chef whose life was cut short and the possible suspects stumbled over each other to avoid an arrest for the crime. The ineptness of the police detective forced Lexy the pastry chef to investigate with the assistance of her dog Sprinkles and a gaggle of women seniors. Inner workings of a commercial kitchen and the love of baking was explored. Retired criminal psychologist and a retired investigative consultant worked together in an effort to solve the death of a psychic in “A Zen for Murder”. The town of Crab Cove on a small island with its limited resources had no shortage of nosy neighbours and secrets. Summertime in Maine was the setting for “Dead & Buried”. Disliked by the local sheriff with a hankering to pin any crime on the doorstep of the Blackmoore sisters, a dead body on their property intensified his efforts for an arrest. Buried treasure, pirates and Belladonna the cat intertwined for an adventure with old world charm. Every story moved along quickly with interesting characters, cute antics and enough clues to solve the cases. With help from friends and family, a strong woman with determination stepped up in each of the stories.

    Kindle Unlimited, Leighann Dobbs writes under Leighann Dobbs, Annie Dobbs and (soon) L.A. Dobbs but her real name {not sure if she writes under that one} is Lee Dobbins, Hazel Martin Mysteries only one I found for this type with her, she has not made sure that terms used match the British terms as well as in other areas for that period of architecture and assorted styles. The Notch Cozy Mystery Series {5 out as of this writing} and the Blackbore Sisters Cozy Mysteries are not on Kindle Unlimited Kindle Unlimited, Leighann Dobbs writes under Leighann Dobbs, Annie Dobbs and (soon) L.A.

The Notch Cozy Mystery Series {5 out as of this writing} and the Blackbore Sisters Cozy Mysteries are not on Kindle Unlimited which as said before about 1 & 7 {the only ones given free, sure would not have bought them} and ditto for Ghostly Paws which is 1 of 5 at this time but did get others free over time. While some of her other books are Kindle Unlimited none of the Blackmoore Sisters Cozy Mysteries are which doesn't matter to me as read #1 and #7 and was way underwhelmed. Leighann Dobbs writes under Leighann Dobbs, Annie Dobbs and (soon) L.A.

By the way, bakeries and other food service places don't run like that. Badly needs to proof things, it's messing up the flow of the book, which my computer reads to me, so that's bad. As for these, it's not that the situations couldn't happen, it's in the telling of the story, with unlikable unbelievable characters and situations, again. Yet another goodreads won't hide it don't want to see the badly proofed badly plotted poor excuse for bad soft core porn crap. The 'historical' ones are like that and so are the some of the non cozy mysteries and some of the sorta but not really mysteries because can't write, etc ad nauseum. The most any of them got was 2 changed to 1 for crap cozy, some get a 1 which means basically crappy soft porn 'romance' etc. 3 in Silver Hollow Paranormal Cozy Mystery Series so far which are on kindle unlimited, 3 in the Moosamuck Island Mysteries , 5 in the Mystic Notch Cozy Mysteries so far {not ku}, Blackmore Sisters has 7 {not ku}, Hazel Martin Mysteries only has 1 so far, Lexy Baker Cozy Mystery series 12 so far is on ku. Others.including Scandals and Spies Book series so far 4 which are basically romance soft core porn dreck but hey you can get them on ku. Witches of Hawthorne Grove 1 so far,Cevonne Bride of Oklahoma, Unexpected Series 4 so far ku. The Lexy Baker Cozy Mystery Series By the way, bakeries and other food service places don't run like that. Badly needs to proof things, it's messing up the flow of the book, which my computer reads to me, so that's bad. As for these, it's not that the situations couldn't happen, it's in the telling of the story, with unlikable unbelievable characters and situations, again. Copy/paste fill in the blank seems to be pretty much what she is doing in her books, which wouldn't be half as bad if the plots and ploys and actions were believable at all.Just change the name for a book and maybe change the series list under, and you are right back to copy paste same old same old. NOTE: I specifically mentioned certain of the 'books'/series were achieving soft core crap status, and specifically said which ones those were, reference AGAIN the above quoted review, and did not specifically mention the blackmore ones as that, BUT and had not mentioned that had went back and rated all no talent no plot cardboard charactered 'stories' listed above as 1 as well. I will change the original review to reflect that, but it is still a 1, and MY review of the crap stands.

    This was an entertaining book that showcases the first book in 4 cozy series. It was well written. I liked the mixture of the age of the main characters. Some were young, some middle aged, and some in their 70's. The stories kept you reading to see how they would successfully bring the bad guys to justice. The stories did not drag. They kept going with surprises thrown in. I especially liked the small paranormal in the stories.

    Skip the last book The first books on the collection were good. The last was terrible. If I had to read about a heart dropping or a stomach doing flip flops or furrowed brows I was going to jump. But I will read other stories by the writer.

    I really liked this collection of stories. They each had there own twist and turns. Suspense and murder and treasure and bad guys all in the same book, but different stories.

    Great Mystery! Thoroughly enjoyed this cozy mystery. Just enough intrigue, a little magic and little romance. Will definitely be reading more of the Blackmoore sisters mysteries.

    Cozies, but not challenging. The books were somewhat entertaining, but not very gripping. The characters were not very deeply developed. I would recommend them to someone looking for a quick read.

Two of the series seem very similar with both set in small towns in Maine. For the most part, the characters don't seem very developed in these first sets of books. I did enjoy the one with the retired consultants and at least felt that one was plausible as to why they'd get involved in an investigation--though apparently all small town Maine police personnel seem incompetent to solve a crime without the help of others and really, how many murders can happen in a small town before you either run out of murderers (because you've caught them) or someone starts to suspect you as the cause for all the bodies? I was dismayed to read the last of the 4 included stories. I could put up with herbs but when the main characters are deliberately allowing customers to buy gems based on their supposed properties (warding off evil, helping one move on, etc.) along with a yoga instructor who speaks to dead people when she meditates . . . it just got way too off-the-wall for my tastes and I couldn't finish that book. I think I'm done reading this author just based on that alone.

    Very casual, common grammar, sometimes annoyingly common. The author has some witty things to say, however, she has all of her characters saying them, so the epithets lose their fun and are a bore. The author's constant usage of the word, Guys accounting for a group of people is annoying and not right, including when elderly ladies are called en masse, Guys! Some of tales are sweet and love-stories. However, a bit homogenized. Some mysteries are fun little romps through the candy-store of life. Very casual, common grammar, sometimes annoyingly common.

Some of tales are sweet and love-stories. However, a bit homogenized. Some mysteries are fun little romps through the candy-store of life. Some are a bore and all too easily solved. Overall, this set of stories are fun like mind-candy, fluffy marshmallow stories. 2.5 stars. Lots of grammatical errors, whether it is the author or editor or the conversion to Kindle, I found too many, causing me to rate this book lower.
