gorgeous Cole I really enjoyed this quick read It is definitely a book you can pick up and finish while waiting for a couple appointments or taking breaks at work I really enjoyed the characters of Christine and Cole I thought is was a neat take on some of the traditionally thought about roles in society such as a female pastor I liked the pace and movement of the story, but I did feel that it could have had a fewtwists and turns I think it ended too early Also, though I liked the love story it was a bit quick and a bit forced due to the pace of the book I felt that if a fewtwists had been added then the love story would have seemed muchnatural Overall, it was a good little story It definitely hassuspense then anything But, if you are looking for physical love in this you won t find it It does have a christian undertone that if that doesn t interest you, you may find it a bit challenging to read At first this seems like an ordinary murder with romance, but J.Q Rose has brought in her usual or should I say unusual sense of humor and we also have a cat, a pig and a kangaroo taking major parts in the story Christine gets into all sorts of situations, both dangerous and funny, when they try to solve the murder mystery.I have read J.Q Rose s books before and this is another good one The author has that uncanny knack of putting together a serious situation with a touch of humor Not too At first this seems like an ordinary murder with romance, but J.Q Rose has brought in her usual or should I say unusual sense of humor and we also have a cat, a pig and a kangaroo taking

thoroughly enjoyed this book, which says a lot as I don t usually read inspirational books, but this is a definite can t put it down book Well done Ms Rose, can t wait for the next book from your writing desk I m really sorry to give Coda to Murder only three stars I ve read J.Q Rose s other lightweight mystery about murder in a senior park in Florida.The humor keeps Coda singing despite a number of plot holes and just glitchy stuff that bothered me An example is saying Christine would have to notify the murder victim s William s sister No, she wouldn t The police would notify next of kin For that matter, there s much talk about nobody knowing much about William s life outside of the church I m really sorry to give Coda to Murder only three stars I ve read J.Q Rose s other

the church I expected some revelations about him other than the specific cause of his murder, but there was none That s just a couple of examples that dragged the book down a couple of notches I won t belabor the point.But I liked the MC, Christine, and her stalwart sidekick, Lacey I enjoyed the interplay around the pig and the kangaroo I almost wish the story was about Christine s tribulations trying to keep up with the two service animals.The reason for the murder is solid and the revelation of the killer good form.I see the 5 star reviews here I wish the reviewers wouldn t do that when the book clearly is not 5 star material It s certainly a likable read and many will enjoy it Sometimes a book just doesn t work for me I m afraid this is one of the times I m really sorry to say that because I think this could have been a dandy romance mystery with better content editing Coda to Murder This book took me off guard, in a good way It s an easy, fun read A curl up and just enjoy type

in, as did the romance and the inspirational message of the story I read it in one night, couldn t put it down I highly recommend this story. This is one of the few times that I have read a novel where I feel I learned a great deal about the author, J.Q Rose, being very spiritual and a kind person That being said, it was a delightful cozy, with some romance, some religion, and lots of mystery This novel has an interesting cast of characters, humorous situations, and was filled with surprises I liked the pastor, Christine Hobbs the protagonist in the story She was strong, down to earth, and generous.
