Berry the Hatchet was just delightful. The book has engaging characters, a beautiful setting (can you imagine a lovely, small town with snow), and a fun mystery. I just wish the murder mystery had been a little more difficult to solve. I did, though, enjoy following the clues (the author provided some good clues) to the conclusion (where I confirmed I picked the right killer). Berry the Hatchet can be read as a stand-alone book if you have not read the first book in the series. I look forward to the next novel in A Cranberry Cove Mystery series. I give Berry the Hatchet 4.5 out of 5 stars (if I had not been able to solve the mystery it would have been a 5). Berry the Hatchet had just the right blend of mystery, romance, friends (and quirky characters), and family. Peg Cochran did a very good job constructing Berry the Hatchet.
I received a complimentary copy of Berry the Hatchet from the author (as a part of the Cozy Mystery Review Crew) in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.
