Easy As Pie at Bobby's Diner by Susan Wingate



Synopsis from Amazon:  Georgette Carlisle lost her first husband, and is about to lose her next one: Hawthorne Biggs. She’s running the diner with Roberta, her late husband’s daughter. When old friend, Helen, comes back home after a failed attempt at a writing career, she is, once again, attracted to Georgette’s man. After the two women part company Helen goes missing. While digging around, Georgette finds out that Biggs has a dangerous past. With Roberta at her side, the two women brave separation, torture, and near death at the hand of Biggs. And, after taking him down, the women find a new strength and belonging. EASY AS PIE is the number two book in the four-part “Bobby’s Diner” series.


My thoughts:  Easy as Pie at Bobby's Diner is the second installment in what might also be known as the Georgette Carlisle series.   If given the opportunity to read Bobby's Diner first, I would recommend doing so.  While it was fairly easy to catch up on the story, it seems that this installment picks up where the first one left off.

There weren't any super surprising plot twists in Bobby's Diner, but it was entertaining throughout. Georgette Carlisle is a likable character who is not without her flaws.  There were a few occasions where I thought that she should have seen the light, but that is what makes reading this kind of story fun.  Roberta had an integral role in this installment and I would like to get to know her better.  I can see her having a larger role in one of the future installments.  I immediately saw Helen as a means to and end and nothing more. 

This book is a little more graphic than a cozy mystery, but not quite so much as a more intense mystery/thriller.  This was a nice little escape that I finished in just a few sittings.  If you have the time I'd bet you could race through it in one.  I would recommend this one to anyone who likes a cozy with a little bit of oomph.  I look forward to continuing the series. 

Wingate has several titles to her credit.  Take a peek at http://www.susanwingate.com/ to check them out.


My copy of Easy As Pie at Bobby's Diner was provided by the author for participation in her blog tour presented by Pump Up Your Book.  This is my honest opinion of the book.

I do enjoy a cozy mystery, so Thanks! I see you are listening to The Postmistress. It's on my TBR list--I'll be interested in your review.
