I'm still puzzled at the number of serial killers that turn up in "cozies", and the MC always seeming to slip through the killer's fingers with ease. [Maybe that's their purpose.] But both books made adequate who-done-its with enough twists and suspects to make the reader work to solve the mystery before the end. There's at least one more in the series, but I'm not going to go searching for it. I'm reading the Hunger Games.
