Too Short for Much to Happen
NOTE: I was given a review copy of just A Knead to Kill by Chelsea Thomas, which is only in this collection at this time; this review is just for that story.
I have read other books in this series, and I have quite enjoyed the adventures of Chelsea, Miss May, and Teeny. I did enjoy the interaction of those characters in this novella as well, but the book was too short to really develop much of a mystery with all the elements I love. I know it’s all the rage these days to have super-short fiction that people can read in less than an hour or two, but I don’t think that format really works well for mysteries. Red herrings and bad leads take time to develop fully. I’ve only seen short-form mystery work well once. I will keep reading this series because I do enjoy the characters and the delightful setting that the author has created, but I don’t think this one added much to the series.
