Read for #DiverseCozy This was a so-so for me. I liked the main character Halia, the restaurant setting & of course, all the southern food mentions/recipes. I didn‘t like the way some of the characters were written—like Halia‘s cousin; more caricatures than feeling real & the dialogue felt awkward. In that regard, I wasn‘t shocked but still disappointed to learn from GoodReads that the author is not a black woman, but rather a white/Latin male. ⬇️

DebinHawaii …And, while most cozy sleuths tend to make bad choices that cause me to yell at them in my head, some of Halia‘s & her cousin‘s decisions were REALLY bad & had no repercussions at the end which was not realistic. Based on all that, but mainly the author switcheroo, I won‘t continue with this series.🤷🏻‍♀️ #diversecozy2023 #serieslove2023 (edited) 1mo

Andrew65 Cozies seem to have a higher chance of being a so-so for me. Like with @TheBookHippie could eat that food! 1mo
