    1. Dollycas’s ThoughtsI must start out this review by saying Kathi Daley is an amazing writer. She has such an imagination. My only question is when does this woman sleep.

    4. I love Kathi Daley but this one was just ok for me. It just didn't hold my interest as her other books do. There were puzzles the main character had to solve while trying to solve the murder. I did think that was neat and different.

    5. A cozy mystery that touched my heart as well as entertained me. At Maggie's Hideaway, a mountain lodge in a lakefront community in Serenity, Nevada; T.J.

    8. Pumpkins in Paradise is the first book in Kathi Daley’s Tj Jensen Mystery series. This book is a re-release of the original book that was published in September of 2013. The storyline and characters are well developed and the story flows along at a steady pace. The characters are likeable and relatable. This book sends strong messages of family, friendship, and loyalty. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading the next adventure of Tj and her friends.Tj Jensen is a high school [...]

    9. It's been a long time since I read a good cozy mystery (weeks which is a long time for me) and I honestly can say this one wasn't one of them. I either got this for free or for 99 cents. It just wasn't that good. To begin with, there were several typos and issues with continuing the story. The book felt really disjointed in places. In addition, there were several times where a secondary character would tell the main character something and as the reader, we weren't told what it was. The characte [...]

    10. I enjoyed this first of a series book. Tj is a strong intelligent woman who follows her gut when she believes her friend has been murdered. I love the rest of the cast of characters. Her father and grandfather who you don't hear much about but give the feeling of a strong backbone in the family. Her younger sisters that she is raising, seem to be actual feelings a child would have at that age. The possible romance to come with Dylan, I love the fact when Tj would find something, he already knew [...]

    11. This is one of my favorite books by Kathi. I truly enjoyed all the riddles and puzzles that TJ had to figure out in order to know what her friend Zachary wanted her to find out. Kathi is the next Dan Brown. I felt like I was in one of Dan Brown's novel DaVinci Code in which Robert Langdon is deciphering symbols in order for him to save someone's life. Kathi did a very nice job of creating riddles which aren't easy to write that went well with her story. It was great to be in total suspense while [...]

    18. Heard a lot about this author but not had a chance to try her books out till now.

    19. Review of PUMPKINS IN PARADISE by Kathi Daley (TJ Jensen Mystery #1What a winner! I love cozy mysteries, and this start of a new cozy series is just great! I'm reminded of an Agatha Christie village mystery, had Agatha set it in Nevada's mountain beauty, beside a picturesque lake. TJ Jensen is a great lady, a great friend, and a wonderful choice for heroine. In tiny Serenity, Nevada, she is part of a close-knit family which owns and operates "Maggie's Hideaway," a lakeside resort. When a very go [...]

    20. Loved this first book in this new series and I think that there will be a lot more character development coming in the following books.I liked TJ because she doesn't seem to be afraid of anything and when she was a kid, she befriended a recluse named Zachary. 14 years later he is found dead and TJ believes it is foul play, but the new detectives in town think it is natural causes. There are also some visitors to the town staying in the lodge that TJ helps run (outside of her full time job as a c [...]

    21. When her close friend, Zachary Collins, dies, Tj Jensen feels that something is wrong. He was a recluse who had many secrets in his past, but he was contented when she last saw him. She doesn't believe that he committed suicide. As she checks out her suspicions, TJ keeps adding people to the suspect list. She's just not sure who wanted him dead or why. TJ is a wonderful character. She is smart, compassionate and tenacious. The way her mind works is amazing and her observation skills are impressi [...]

    22. This book was originally published in 2013 and is the first book in the Tj Jensen Mystery Series. There is a new book being release soon and it was great discovering they put out book one for people who missed it. It's a great cozy series featuring a teacher who is now guardian to her two half sisters. It appears the series is set around various holidays throughout the year. I like Tj, she is down to earth, sensible and leading a busy full life in the town she grew up and has lots of family and [...]

    23. This cozy mystery has an extremely well thought plot and more depth than any I've read in a very long time. The characters literally come alive right before your eyes, they are unique and unforgettable. I felt invested in the outcome just as if I was participating myself. There are enough twists and turns to keep the "Who done it?" mystery vibrating with intensity right up until the surprising end. I'm definitely emotionally attached to the characters now and will be reading the remaining books [...]

    24. This was my first Kathi Daley bookI loved it. My favorite cozies take place in small towns, and Paradise Lake really sounds like paradise. The main character, T.J. Jensen, sounds like someone I would like as a friend. The book had a mystery within a mystery, which is always fun. I can't wait to read Book 2 and learn more about T.J. and the other residents of Paradise Lake.

    25. I want to live in Serenity! What a fun town and resort. This is a great seasonal book. It left me wanting to know how things work out with the chorus, the ski team, and the relationships. The next book is coming out in February 2014 and I'm looking forward to it.

    26. 2013-12-27. I loved this cozy mystery. The characters were great especially for a first book in the series and the mystery a mystery. I loved the puzzles that she had to solve to really solve it. Very fun. Can't wait for the next installment!!

    27. I enjoyed meeting Tj Jensen, the main character in "Pumpkins in Paradise" by Kathi Daley. The novel had an intriguing plot, interesting and likeable characters and a great setting. I highly recommend this book.

She and her sisters live at their family-owned lodge with Tj's father and grandfather.In her youth, Tj befriended a hermit living in a house at Paradise Lake, sharing a love of puzzles and figuring out their solutions tog [...]

    29. 3.5 starsThis is the debut for a series with main character Tj Jenson (and I have to mention in passing how annoying it is that this character is named Tj and not TJ). She is an interesting person -- her background is part of the story, as her unreliable mom died and Tj has taken over the parenting of her two young half-sisters. She is a coach and is everything her mother wasn't: steady, someone you can count on, a good role model.The book begins with the suspicious (to Tj) death of her close fr [...]
