    1. My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin: witandsin/2016/03Trifling Favors is a story I wanted to like far more than I did, which makes it a bit difficult for me to review. Hardworking Betsy Popham has been an interesting secondary character in the Redcakes series and I was excited that she finally got a book of her own. I loved learning more about Betsy and my heart broke for her more than once over the course of the story. She’s the daughter of a convicted killer and has lived her life with t [...]

    2. I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.This is book seven in the "The Redcakes" series. I would say this is a standalone book even though Betsy has shown trough out the series as a secondary character and Greggory I think was just in the last book. This is the story of Greggory Redcake who manages Kensington location of the illustrious tea shop and where Betsy is the store manger of the tea shop. They have know each other for a few years but up unt [...]

    3. **I received an eARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review**I would rate this book 3, maybe 3.5 stars. I liked it much better than Wedding Matilda, but it cannot compare to the first books in the series.I think the writing was much more cohesive in this book than it was in the last book, but I felt it was still lacking the true romance of the first three books. The mystery was very well done and had me going back and forth for much of the book trying to d [...]

Betsy Popham works hard in Redcake's tearoom, helping her father to have a dignified life.Added to this the fact that they need to pay the expenses of another family, the Carter, because Betsy's mother was accused of having killed the head of that family. But it seems that part of this responsibility ends when Mrs. Carter dies.

    5. We have met both Betsy and Greggory previously in the series and now we visit with them as they find their happiness. Unfortunately that happiness must wait for slow police work, family betrayals, murder, vandalism and lack of self-esteem. Once again Ms. Heistand brings deep and complex character portrayals to the story and even if you have not read the other books in the series you will cheer for Betsy and Greggory and hiss at the betrayals. I loved the story and the tension the murder brought [...]

    10. Trifling Favors by Heather HiestandKensington BooksPub Date: Mar 15 2016The only thing I can say about this story is the mystery was written in a great way. It keeps you guessing as to who the villian would be. I have read the entire series and having said what i have about the way the mystery portion was written, I will say the romance portion was perhaps a little under written. I was disappointed for I have waited for the female character to have her own story. The romance just did not give th [...]

    11. Really wanted to love this was likable. Betsy is a great part of the Redcakes world and her story was just so so. Plus really bummed that they killed off Mannifred Cross And I liked his character

    12. This was a great murder mystery with a romance included. I loved the Redcakes series and enjoyed every single one. I hope this isn't the end of the Redcake family. I want to still see what happens to these characters and their lives.
