4 out of 5 stars to Sticks & Scones, the 10th book in the “Goldy Bear Schultz Culinary” cozy mystery series, written in 2001 by Diane Mott Davidson. When the book is about scones (which I absolutely love), Shakespeare (which is a favorite), and a castle that’s been torn down in England and re-built in Colorado (how cool is that), the book had a very small chance of going wrong. And it didn’t! It was a good mystery, eccentric but fun characters and very tasty-sounding recipes. I never make any of them for two reasons: (1) too many cookbooks to choose from already on my shelves and (2) I rarely use a recipe to cook. I kinda skim it, get the basics and then do whatever I want to do. It’s worked in all but two occasions. Both were in baking. Sometimes the ingredients only work together a certain way. I digress… this was a good one in the series. I enjoyed the whole premise of Hyde Castle and would love to build a place like that myself!
For those new to me or my reviews… here’s the scoop: I read A LOT. I write A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at https://thisismytruthnow.com, where you’ll also find TV & Film reviews, the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I’ve visited all over the world. And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who/what/when/where and my pictures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Vote in the poll and ratings. Thanks for stopping by.
