❧ Bookish Coven Rating
I don’t read many cozy mysteries but this was a fun exception! Miriam was such a likable narrator! Do read book one if you want to pick up the series though, as there are some spoilers!
There is a lot of Spanish language dotted in the dialogue which I really liked, as it added to the character of the story if it makes sense. The murder mystery was a satisfactory one and I would recommend this book if you are looking for a cozy mystery to curl up this fall!!
P.S: There are a couple of recipes at the end of the book, which I definitely plan on trying!!
