~DOWNLOAD PDF ☩ Cooked Goose ☫ A sexy, Southern born private detective Savannah Reid is back, keeping the streets of exclusive San Carmelita, California, safe while indulging both her passion for food and her appetite for solving crime This was my first book by this author and I plan on reading the rest of the series. Another great Savannah Reid episode. Savannah is helping her ex partner, Dirk, go after a serial rapist Suddenly, they also have to deal with the death of some fellow police officers and figure out if the two crimes are related I m really enjoying this series so far I would have given this five stars, but it drives me crazy that Savannah talks about how poor she is and how late her bills are because she doesn t have a paying job, but she never seems to go hungry She still buys plenty of stuff And whenever somebody offers to pa Savannah is helping her ex partner, Dirk, go after a serial rapist Suddenly, they also have to

Savannah talks about how poor she is and how late her bills are because she doesn t have a paying job, but she never seems to go hungry She still buys plenty of stuff And whenever somebody offers to pay her for something, she turns them down Where is she getting money I am starting to have some issues with the overall arc of the series She is a PI who left the police department albeit involuntarily and still works most cases with her partner from the police force Whether she is helping him out or he is helping her He never had a new partner assigned to him Then there are her friends with FBI connections that help her out with things on each case.I am not saying solving crimes shouldn t be a collaborative effort but this feels weird.As far as the individ I am starting to

crimes shouldn t be a collaborative effort but this feels weird.As far as the individual story, I feel I knew who did it about the middle of the book, it was slightly obvious However the sudden pivot from rape to murder felt like it was two different books smushed together The story tied up but not seamlessly in my opinion I was mislead by the cover art and title into thinking this was a cozy mystery, it is not in my opinion Cozies keep profanity and graphic violence to a minimum, and that did not happen with Cooked Goose much to my disappointment I read books from many different genres, mysteries are one of my favorites Cozies are an escape for me from some of the heavier reading that I do I liked the character of Savannah and her friend Dirk although they did have some annoying traits, don t we all The pace I was mislead by the cover art and title into thinking this was a cozy mystery, it is not in my opinion Cozies keep profanity and graphic violence to a minimum, and that

and that took it down a notch I have another book in this series, which I ll give a try, but I probably won t be looking for It s Christmas season and someone dressed as Santa is raping women in and

members of the police force begin to die, things get interesting Then, one of Savannah s sisters arrives announced with her 2 bratty 5 yr old twin boys This would have beenenjoyable if we didn t have to get a rundown of her daily intake of crap food She whines about her weight, but does nothing to help herself And, we already know that she has a pie crust table at the entry of her home for keys and mail Why remind us each and every book Guess I am dense but I didn t guess the killer right off Although I liked a good bit of this story, the ending really let me down There was little to no explanation as to why the bad guy did half of what he did, and and the logic for why he committed some of the crimes was lame I also had difficulty tolerating Savannah s sister Vidalia and kids, all of whom should have had a come to Jesus meeting with Savannah and shaped up or shipped out However, there were tender moments involving a troubled teen and there s something about curmudgeonly Dirk th

there were tender moments involving a troubled teen and there s something about curmudgeonly Dirk that I really enjoy I have the next two books in this series in my possession and, after I finish those I will have to decide whether I m going to commit to a long term relationship with this set of characters This is the first savannah Reid book I ve read I really like her She sounds a lot like me Sounds like I m going to have to make our library get the first three seeing as how this is the earliest one they had.
