    5. A good cozy mystery that is the third in the series. I have not read the first two which met, a disadvantage of knowing the characters and what they did. Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield co-own a cafe and bookstore. They plan tours on special books and authors. Returning from one, the bus driver is found stabbed to death. Sassy is the main suspect in the murder. Their Moms arrive a for visit bringing additional troubles. Special adventures are interspaced between the visits from various police of [...]

    6. This book has a good story, but it is buried in tons and tons of repetition.The descriptions are very wordy, and descriptions of the same places are repeated several times.There is so much made of the influence of "the moms" that it makes them seem unreal. The Heap a Jeep and the shiny red Ford Escort are mentioned so many times that instead of being able to picture them, one wants to trade them both in!

All thoughts stated in this review are entirely my own.*This is series is one of the series currently in danger of being cancelled by Berkley.

I truly believe that, given a f [...]

    10. Come on down to Ft. Myers Beach and join us at the Read ‘Em and Eat Bookstore Café, the third book in the Read ‘Em and Eat mystery series This is a new series for me and I had to catch up on the characters but it didn’t take long. The story begins when a book club led by Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield, owners of the Read ‘Em and Eat Bookstore Café, lead a small group on a road trip to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates. Prior to the trip the “clubbies” read the book The Florida Li [...]

    11. This was the first Ream 'Em and Eat Mystery that I have read, having won the book in the giveaways. This just wasn't for me. The story was really just about the girls daily life running a diner and book club. The real mystery of the book is why it's called a Mystery at all. The author does not really get into viable suspects until 200 pages in. And when the murder is solved, it is more of a side note where you are told it's solved but not really any more about it. I ended up skimming quite a fe [...]

    13. Sassy and Bridgy are all set to take their reading group to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates to wrap up the book club season. The snow birds will be heading back north soon and what a way to tie in their last book, The Florida Life of Thomas Edison, with local Florida culture and have the club go out with a bang. Except, Oscar, their driver has managed to ruffle some feathers among the women in the group, whether intentional or not. After arriving back at the cafe, Bridgy finds Oscar dead, and [...]

    14. This novel was really filled with friendship, family, and the fear associated with viewing a felony crime such as murder!Our Café team, Sassy, and Bridgy take their book club on it's end of season field trip. They have a very entertaining driver to the Edison and Ford Homes and Edison Lab (Winter homes.) The driver is perhaps too entertaining? Or, does he know too much about one passenger? Or, is it a random crime. All Sassy knows is that she needs to protect her BFF and now!This was the best o [...]

    15. READ TO DEATH is a fun, lighthearted read that is character driven. The senior citizen group has some quirky characters, such as Bridgy’s Aunt Ophie. There is tension and mystery surrounding the fallout Aunt Ophie had with Bridgy’s mother and the subplot weaves nicely with the story Sassy’s mother, who calls herself Sage at the moment, has a free spirit keeping everyone on their toes and provides some humor. I also enjoyed the historical facts woven into this cozy mystery. I had no idea th [...]

    16. Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield are at it again in Read to Death at the Read ‘Em and Eat Café. This time, they take the “Cool Reads/Warm Climate” book club on their annual field trip to the Edison-Ford estate for an outing, with their favorite driver, Oscar, at the helm. It’s a wonderful trip, and Oscar makes sure to tell them all about the history of the estate—with stories about Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone.But, when they get back from the trip, Oscar is found dea [...]

    17. With book in my hand and cat on my lap I dove into Read To Death, quickly reacquainting myself with the characters, setting, culture and history provided in the first few chapters. The entire time I was thinking about Florida and easily picturing in my mind the places that Terrie describes. I love a healthy dose of true history in my cozy series as it makes them feel so real! The mystery was fun to unravel with Sassy and I enjoyed getting to the bottom or this mystery! I could not put it down an [...]

    18. While this is the third book in the series, it is the first I have read. It was easy to get to know all the characters without going back to the first two books.The characters are fun and realistic, and the mystery keeps you turning pages, anxious to see how it all plays out. I read the story in one day, because I simply couldn't put it down!**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.*

    19. Family can always be counted onHow nice it was to meet and get to know the moms and see how much they love their daughters. You see Bridgy has been accused of a murder she didn't commit and both moms rush to her aid. They even put aside Bridgys moms fight with Aunt Ophie. Terrie Fraley Moran has written another wonderful look into the lives of two young women trying to live in a world that keeps throwing dead bodies at them. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

    20. This time Sassy and Bridgy take a group of book club members to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates. Their van driver, Oscar, gets killed after everyone returns to the cafe and the police keep talking to Bridgy because she found the body. Sassy of course sets out to find the real murderer. Both Sassy and Bridgy's mothers come for visit to help and bring comfort to the girls.Learned a little early Florida history. The book was a quick easy read.

    21. I wanted to crawl right into this book and be a part of this community and savor the tasty treats and take part in the book discussions at the Read 'Em and Eat Cafe. The characters are quirky and fun and the mystery keeps you reading. I fun and interesting read.

    22. Ultimate Reading Challenge 2017. A book with a red spine. The book club has taken a field trip to the Florida homes of Henry Ford and Thomas Alva Edison, as well as Edison's laboratory. When their driver returns them to the café/bookstore Bridgy realizes she has left her sunglasses in the van. When she goes out to the parking lot to get them, she discovers the driver has been murdered. WHY? And who would have had a motive? Bridgey's mom announces she will arrive for a visit to comfort her daugh [...]

    23. Too much repetition in this book, same ole same ole over and over again. Th two main characters naive nature got in the way of the mystery for me- especially Sassy. It's like she's a grown woman the brain of a high schooler. I wanted to like this series, hence me reading all of the books, but this one will probably be my last.

    24. I liked this one a lot. I thought it was fun and enjoyed the mothers visiting. They along with aunt Ophie fit well with Sassy and Bridgy. Someone kills the tour driver early on and there are some good twists and turns. There was good background added to the series and I hope the series continues to grow.

    25. A nice story, but not really a mystery. Other than running around after information that means nothing the main characters do nothing to find whodunnit. No clues, no evidence and Sassy still doesn't know what happened until she is reading about the arrest in the paper! I want something more than an aura as a hint, not that they even recognize that.

    26. Snow birds and a book store owner who promotes her store by hosting a book clubferences The Florida Life of Thomas Edison --local history involving Thomas Edison and Henry Fordrecipes included

    27. Even though I like the second one a little better, I still had fun reading this one. What is it about cozy mysteries that are fun to read? The writing style, characters, setting is what helps. Oh and the mystery too. Another pretty good read in this series so far.

    28. Sassy and Bridgy take a book club on a field trip. After returning, Bridgy finds the bus driver dead in his van in their parking lot. She becomes the prime suspect. Their mothers travel down to Florida to offer their support as they try to clear Bridgy.

    29. Too many characters introduced in the beginning made it very confusing. Could not really get into this book. Interesting set up (bookstore/book club/cafe), but too many characters.
