What they say:
‘Kate Foster runs the Summerside Inn (and her life) by well-organized checklists.
Make sure the caterers don’t serve devil’s food cake to the Christian Women’s Alliance– check.
Tell my mother that having a séance to get rid of any unwanted spirits in the kitchen during dinnertime is not okay- check.
Send a friendly reminder to all staff that the pens are colour coded for everyone’s enjoyment, and therefore it is not a good idea to put them all in one jar in order to “spice things up” as was anonymously suggested– check.
But, when an acclaimed hotel critic dies at the Inn, just before she’s about to publish a scathing review that would ruin the business, Kate’s life and checklists are thrown into disarray. And it doesn’t help matters that the detective assigned to the case is messy, unorganized, and too charming for his own good. Now Kate has to prove her innocence and save her Inn, or else the only thing that she’ll be organizing is the prison’s next bake sale.’

What I thought
Well now, I would loathe to be called organised or anything of the sort, so I am writing this review straight after turning the last page of the book. Which was about ten minutes ago. I mean I only got the book in like October or something, so what’s a girl to do! 😉 In fact I am sure that Kate, the lead character in this book would be driven to the edge of the nearest cliff if she were to encounter me and my organisational skills. Or lack thereof.
I must admit that I inwardly groaned when I read about this book being funny. While I like to think of myself as quite witty and humorous I do like it to be all about me 😉 I am not so good at reading or watching anything that is supposed to be funny. I am almost famous for it. Its like I read it in the wrong ‘tone of voice’ or something. I did however find myself giggling on the bus yesterday morning – almost at the start of the book. I was a bit taken a back and thought OH!
So yes while this is a funny book I have to say that I enjoyed it immensely. I will also admit I found myself rolling my eyes at the ‘firemen costumes’ and thought as if that would happen. Then I gave myself a mental kick up the arse and thought get over it and just read the damn book.
So when I stopped reading the book too seriously that’s when I let the humour settle in for me. It really is a great read. It’s not long (good job or I never would have made my deadline), its a light funny read. Even if it is staged around a murder lol. Perfect for that weekend away or when you just want to lose yourself for a couple of hours. I will definitely have to check out Emily Harpers other book!
