Of Murder and Men (A Cat Latimer Mystery)

Of Murder and Men (A Cat Latimer Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon DNF at 38%

I feel bad to DNF it. It is a well-written cozy mystery, very culinary (that I normally enjoy), and it is a nice holiday read. My problem with [b:Of Murder and Men|34488841|Of Murder and Men (Cat Latimer Mystery, #3)|Lynn Cahoon|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1489242228s/34488841.jpg|55609813] - it is already the book#3 in the series. I honestly didn't know this fact, when I requested an ARC.

Even if the author tried to do her best to get an occasional reader to know what happened (more or less) in the previous books, I couldn't get rid of a feeling that I missed something. I lacked the background story, and even the worst - the emotional connection to the characters, the understanding of the whole picture and their role in it.

I would strongly recommend to read the previous books of the series before you pick up the book #3. It is not a stand alone IMO.
