    One thought on “Poisoned Tarts”

    1. Cheesy but fun. Kind of like a Hallmark mystery movie with an edge to it. The characters were great and there were twists and turns to the mystery and murder that kept me guessing. Not great literature but great for when you just want something easy and light.

    2. Not my favorite in the series. I missed Tammy in this one.The 'big clue' in the story annoyed me. I don't want to give anything away, but that is not how library computers work. At least they don't in our system, and thank goodness for that!

    3. Cute book. Love the main character Savannah Reid. She is a middle aged women a little overweight, a little sarcastic, loves to cook and take care of people. A lot like me.

    4. I enjoy McKevett and her Savannah Reid series. This was not my favorite in the series as it had a bit of a young Hollywood feel to it that made you think of Paris Hilton and her era of misbehavior. It was still fun to read and followed her famous recipe for storytelling. The series is worth reading.

    5. A real page turner with lots of twists and turns and lots of mystery and action to the very end. It will keep you guessing.

    6. The meat of the story is great. This is a lot more like a murder mystery, the kind McKevett has been layering with the characterizations. So why the 3 outta 5 stars? The story felt rushed in some ways and incomplete. For example, the use of CSI director Eileen is the same flat note that she always gets. There's no growth in the books, no matter the order of reading. The same goes for coroner Dr. Jennifer Liu. These are strong women, the foundation of the series, and yet totally underutitlized in [...]

    7. This was my second Savannah Reid, and while it was cute and funny and kind of interesting, it was not nearly as good as KILLER REUNION, which was my previous read. It seems that nothing romantic has yet developed between Dirk and Savannah, but they work well together. As do Tammy and Gran. I thought there was a bit too much of Gran in this one, especially since they were in CA. Yes, I do know she was visiting. The story line was totally improbable, but it is a novel and it is supposed to be tong [...]

    8. Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars I really [...]

    9. Poisoned Tarts makes 18 out of the 20 books in this series that I've read. I love them all! I almost want to wait a long time before I read the next one because I don't want the series to end, but I can't wait to read the next one. I love the characters. I love Savannah's attitude, her heart and the words of wisdom from her grandmother. I'm not sure I could ever pick a favorite author but Ms. McKevett is definitely near the top.

    10. I'm slowly working my way through a bunch of books in the food mystery genera and this is listed as one-but I don't know why. Food is mentioned but is a very minor part of the background. I like the two main characters but can't figure out why an ex-cop who left under a cloud gets to hang out and detect with a current cop-one who has his own issues. And how is she making money? She supposed to be a private investigator but she's working for free here. Beach read.

    11. just started this one this morning, granny is here visiting this time. didnt get too faris one was the skelton 3 girls, rich girls and a fat poorer friend who they locked up in a animal cage to 'lose weight' against her will. the rich girls dad ended up dead in a halloween coffin from a gunshot wound and steak thru his heart from one of the girls (who he was having a affair with).

    12. * Pg 151 (3rd paragraph)Pg. 267, "Savannah pressed her finger tips to the girl's jugular vein and felt a pulse."I love finding these errors in medical terminology. This is probably the 5th book by different authors I've read w/ medical terminology errors. I'm starting to document these just to humor myself. :)

    13. I recently re-read this book. I had just finished a book that was very draining (The Great Santini). This book was a great palate cleanse. The subject matter, a missing teenage girl, is not very light material. Overall, it is still a pretty darn good book.

    14. Same light escapism as the rest of the series, but loses points for underuse of supporting characters and (more egregiously) for hanging a climactic plot revelation on an erroneous understanding of library computer policies.

    15. I love this author! When I start to read her books, for some reason, I just can't put them down. Last night I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning just to finish the book.

    16. Savannah and Dirk are good together.The main characters make all the Reid mysteries great. I would rate it a five if the story line had a little more of a kick to it.

    17. I picked this book up just to give the series a try, and I really enjoyed the mystery. I will be adding more of this series to my collection soon!

    18. good, complicated mystery. Light, fun and "cozy" without being ditzy or condescending. I randomly picked this up at a boksale, and I will be on the look-out for more in the series:)

    19. Savannah stories are usually good reads but her down home southern stories about her grannie grate on me after a bit.

    20. Another great mystery with the Moonlight Magnolia detective agency gang.A missing teenage girl, spoiled rich brats and murder all combine for a great mystery read.

    21. I have really enjoyed reading this seriesis one was as good as the others in the series. I look forward to reading more of this series.
