Dollycas’s ThoughtsKristi Abbott takes a unique approach for the third book in this series. We find our protagonist, Rebecca Anderson in jail. She then uses flashbacks to tell how the gourmet popcorn maker ended up there. Between her shop being under construction to repair the damage that happened in the last book, a found dairy from the 50’s, a town council race and a dead body Rebecca has her hands full. It seems her habit of popping herself into police business has pushed Sheriff Dan way [...]

I was sent Assault and Buttery to read and review and I loved it. It was brilliant. Not at all what I had expected having read the last two books and this one was innovative and I found it very exciting to read. The twists from the start roped me in and kept me grounded! A fun and exciting 3rd book in a great cozy mystery series! Loved it!

Rebecca Anderson is in jail for obstructing justice and her brother-in-law, Sheriff Dan, put her there and won't let her out. Her boyfriend, Garrett, fired her as a client and her only confidant is a criminal. It all started when Rebecca found an old diary in the wall of her shop, still under repairs. The diary, written in the 1950s, at first seems to be that of a typical dramatic teenage girl. As Rebecca reads on, she discovers a mystery that leads her to investigate to discover who the writer [...]
Another enjoyable read from Kristi Abbott. I really enjoyed this book, and it was hard to put down once I started it. Excited to read future adventures!!
I've liked this series, but this book made me think that the heroine had gone back to teenage days in some of her attitude, instead of being an adult with a current lawyer boyfriend, a sister-in-law of the sheriff (who she's known since she was 8 years old) and the ex-wife of a famous chef She has a great dog, that maybe with the book should be trained as a companion or service dog for some volunteer work, after she takes it for an informal visit at a care center for some information that she ne [...]

This is the next story in the Popcorn Shop Mystery series. The author did a good job combining current with World War II events. The crazy characters added to the mystery. The location in Ohio near Lake Erie gave the reader an idea of what it would be like to live in this area. It was quite an exciting way to end the story and give the reader hints that more will follow in this series. copy right 2017
Really love this series and this is the best one yet. It is full of pop and sizzle. I love the well developed characters, superbly written mystery and the entertaining story. You can't go wrong with this delightful tale with one of my favorite protagonist. I was given a copy by the publisher, but the opinion is my own
I really enjoy this series. I didn't know if I'd like the flashback format in the first part of the book, but it was really well written. Rebecca, Sprocket and friends are a fun cast of characters that I hope to hear from again.
This 3rd outing did not have the same appeal as the earlier books. The mysteries were muddied by too many characters, an at times unlikeable MC, and sloppy historic details (would a teen in the 1950’s use the term “gross?”). Not ready to give up on this series, but I hope for a tighter 4th book.
A fun and enjoyable series.
11/11/17 Full review tk. I will say that's a grudging 3, as there were parts that definitely dragged it down to a two.
Great cozy mystery series, looking forward to the next book.
Interesting story I liked the historical bit of the mystery.
Great series! Fun recipes great characters.
