In Victoria Hamilton's Bowled Over, the second installment of the Vintage Kitchen Cozy Mystery series, this tale had plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Before the annual 4th of July picnic in Queensville, Michigan, Jaymie Leighton had a run-in from her former best friend, Kathy Cooper. To this day, she didn't know what caused the rift of their friendship and Kathy's venomous looks over to Jaymie's way. Before the picnic, she had ruffled a couple of people's feathers. By the fireworks exploded, Jaymie had found Kathy's dead body near the bathrooms with her broken Melanine bowl in the area. Now it was up for Jaymie to find out what went behind the vicious rumors that ended her friendship and who killed Kathy that night. Meanwhile stuck in a middle of a love triangle of her own between Detective Christian and her boyfriend Dan Collins, it was up for Jaymie to get to the bottom of the truth before it might too later for her.
This was another great culinary cozy from Victoria Hamilton. This one dealt with a lot of secrets and tons of surprises at every turn. I cared for Jaymie and her relationship with her sister Becca, and became with the love triangle she faced herself with between Zach and Dan. I loved the Queensville MI location and the intricate and lovely quaint settings for this small town. I didn't like Kathy much or the Douglases for that matter. This one would pull at your heart strings and take your on a gripping ride with plenty of drama, intrigue, suspense and a hint of romance.
