Hamburger Heist by Celia Kinsey

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

Hamburger Heist by Celia Kinsey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

(Click the title to find the book description/blurb.)

When a masked robber holds up Felicia’s cook at her food truck, Felicia is determined to find out who the culprit is—and to keep the wrong suspect from doing the time for it in Hamburger Heist by author Celia Kinsey.

After enjoying the first of Felicia’s Food Truck Mysteries, I had no doubts about reading this second one. It’s an upbeat, one-sitting kind of cozy with a good number of twists for its length, splashes of humor, and even a bit of (unrequited?) love in the air.

Now, unless I missed something, the mystery does rely on too-convenient coincidence at one point. Perhaps there’s a name for it: when it seems like late pieces of new information could have been made-up on the spot to easily tie up a part of the plot, as there wasn’t some hint or glimpse of that information earlier in the story. But that’s only a minor issue overall.

And, as I’m fond of repeating, I do appreciate finding mysteries sometimes that don’t revolve around somebody being murdered. There are more kinds of cases to investigate in life! I’m looking forward to going on to the third book in this series.

Here’s my review of the next of Felicia’s Food Truck Mysteries, Pizza Pie Puzzler.
