Amazon Editorial Review:
Like nearly everyone else in Paradise, Ohio, local laundromat owner and stain-removal expert Josie Toadfern eagerly awaits the upcoming July 4th Founders Day celebration with its highlight, the annual Breitenstrater Pie Company pie-eating contest, sponsored by the owners of the town's upper crust enterprise. But things may not be so sweet this year, what with juicy rumors flying that a black sheep Breitenstrater wants to spill the beans about some deep, dark family secret. And when a pie-making bigwig suspiciously drops dead after sampling the company's latest wares, Josie leaps into action. She loves her teeny-weeny community, despite its blemishes -- and any stain on its reputation must be eradicated! But if she sticks her thumb -- or her nose -- into this particular pastry, she's going to pull out more than a plum#133;and she may end up getting her own lethal just desserts.
Looks good.

I enjoyed this one. It was very funny in places and there were some good stain removing tips.
This is going into one of my virtual bookboxes.

Overall, I enjoyed this. Who would have thought stain-removing tips could make a background for a cozy mystery? I enjoyed "nosy Josie," although I got rather lost at the beginning when the author was trying to set the background for the story, telling all the families' interrelationships (but that's rather typical of a small town, isn't it?). I did enjoy the disparate characters, from small-town couples and teens, to the out-of-towners. I enjoyed the laundromat and stain tips background to the story; I thought they were a good fit for the small-town setting. But I thought the ending was ludicrous! (And I'll let it at that.)

I think if I found more in this series, I might read them, but I'm not sure I'd seek them out. Thanks for sending this to me Loveamystery. I'll be saving this for an upcoming cozy mystery bookbox.
