    Despite the birthday cupcake on the cover, I did not connect the title to the phrase and one to grow on, but rather to hill to die on, so I found the title awkward and annoying, but aside from that, I enjoyed the book I started it at about 8 15, waiting for a bus, and finished it around 1PM on an airplane, reading it straight through it was just right for that.I d read one Puzzle Lady book before, and as it was years ago, I don t remember it very well, but I think I liked this one better and found Cora funnier and engaging Cora the Recovering Alcoholic is way fun than Cora the Alcoholic I have trouble finding anything fun in that Edit I forgot to mention the little detail that amused me the most At one point, someone describes a very unlikely thing as being likelier than the Red Sox winning the World Series.The book wa...

    When the best things about the book are the actual word puzzles sprinkled throughout you know you re in trouble As a word puzzle fan I had high hopes for this, but it just didn t deliver on any level The plot was so convoluted that even the reveal had me crossing my eyes The dramatic courtroom scene was ridiculously unrealistic I wanted to skim but couldn t because ...

    My mother gave me this book recently for no particular reason, and I promise you I would never have read it otherwise There s not much to say about it It s a mystery, in a series where the gimmick is that an elderly lady is famous in her small town for being The Puzzle Lady a successful crossword constructor But the real constructor is the Puzzle Lady s niece, and the elderly lady is just a young acting grandma with a sharp mind and a smart mouth and a penchant for solving crimes.The book is peppered with real crossword and anacrostic puzzles to be solved I m sure someone is geeking out on this somewhere I confess even I enjoyed the concept, and completing the puzzles The mystery itself however left me completely cold The plot is too convoluted to be engrossing in the end when the reveal comes it s tedious and barely makes sense Then the denouement drags on for an extraneous boring chapter I also didn t care about any of the characters, and didn t like the Puzzle Lade herself very much She seems like a receptacle for a lot of worn out cliches and a lot of jokes I never found to be funny the first time around let alone the fiftieth She s an old lady but likes to drink and party and act young and gasp ta...
