    4. Hamptons Murder Mysteries are indeed strictly for cosy mysteries fans. Its plus points include quaint Hampton setting, likeable female detective, lots of mention of mouth-watering delicacies and a host of delightful supporting characters. Unfortunately, the mystery part is rather predictable. The murderer is in plain sight of Antonia; the homegrown sleuth in this series. And after figuring out who the culprit is in Chapter 4, it felt rather tedious to finish the book. However, I was rather curio [...]

    11. This first book in a new cozy series is sure to delight with it’s mouth watering descriptions of the scrumptious food served in the restaurant at the inn, to the gorgeous architect inside the inn, around town, and down at the beach.This cozy was a bit different than any other ones that I have read.

    13. Quite funThis is a little bon bon, a very fun mystery with a great setting, Easy Hampton, New York. I enjoyed this mystery, especially the witty asides thrown in by the author which are laugh out loud.

    14. The setting is quaint, love the food porn, the side characters are vibrant. I wish Antonia was "more": funnier, sillier, quirky, etc.

    15. This book left me somewhat frustrated, but hopeful that there will be a second book following these characters. The author had great character development in most cases, except for her main character. The weak point of the book was the main character and her vapid best friend. I'm hoping that the inconsistencies in Antonia's character development will be tweaked so that she will become more fleshed out and likeable in a second book. The plot was inventive and fun to follow even though you clearl [...]

    18. I know they say you can't judge a book by its cover, but when I saw my copy of Death on Windmill Way by Carrie Doyle, I fell in love with it -- it is very reminiscent of the M.

    20. 4.5 Stars - Death on Windmill Way is the first book in a new cozy mystery series. The book is set in East Hampton during the off season, which then means it’s set in a small little town.

During service one night she finds out that all of the Inn’s previous owners have had suspicious deaths and it gets her investigating into them. Then odd thin [...]

    21. I really enjoyed the plot of this book. I do like the fact that the author was very descriptive on the different characters in this book but she was a bit over descriptive on their clothing and brand named items. The setting was great and really put me in East Hampton, a place I have never been but would like to visit now that I have read this book.I am usually very good at predicting pretty quickly who the killer is or what character would be the next to be murdered but it took me the majority [...]

    22. In the end I really liked this book. It took a little warming up to the characters and the somewhat drawn out descriptions but the mystery was phenomenal! I'd recommend taking a chance and reading this one! I'm starting the next immediately.

    24. This is book one in a new series. I enjoyed reading about the Hamptons: the author did a very nice job of adding descriptive words to tell the reader about the homes in the area and seasonal observations of things like leaves falling from the trees and the layers of clothing needed for weather that changes. I also enjoyed the main character—a gourmand who relishes food although she is steadily packing on a few extra pounds. The book begins with a murder and gave details of how it happened. Eve [...]

    25. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

In addition to the daily grind she learns the previous owner of the inn may have indeed been murdered, but before she can contemplate that revelation too much, odd things begin happening to her that make her wonder if someone is indeed out to get her.

    26. This was a fun new mystery series to start. I felt like it was a little different than the normal cozy mystery but I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it was the setting and the cast of characters or the length as this is a bit longer than most cozies, which I enjoyed. I thought the author did a good job of developing the characters. Especially the main character Antonia and I love how she got close to Joseph and looks up to him. Another thing I enjoyed about this author was that she was ve [...]

    27. This is the first book of a series primarily set in East Hampton. The author clearly knows the area well as her descriptions of places and Georgica Beach are right on target. As a summer resident of East Hampton, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the places I am familiar with and could not help but think the Windmill Inn is basically The Hedges in East Hampton.It is a murder mystery with a myriad of potential suspects. Interspersed throughout the book are the trials and tribulations of running [...]

    28. Death on Windmill Way by Carrie Doyle was a book I was asked to review and one I am thrilled to have had on my table. This very well detailed and carefully crafty mystery was a great read. I loved the suspense that built in this tale about a young inn keeper and her ability to transform and over come the obstacles in her way and solve a few mysteries along the journey. I was delighted by the relationships and characters in this mystery and I thought the cover was lovely too! Antonia is a great c [...]

    29. The author took a lot of time to write a lot of details in this book. If you are seeking a book that is like this then I would recommend it for you. For me personally I did not care for so many details. I felt that the characters in the book were not true to themselves. In one sense they would say something "funny" then the next they would say a very large word. It was inconsistent with who they were. I feel that this book had a lot of potential, maybe with the next one leave out some of the ext [...]
