    1. Another fun outing with Erika and her buddy Freddie. Their murder-solving is putting some obstacles in her budding relationship with Grady, but this time its personal. This is a silly book, but endearing. Overall rating: 3.5/5.0 stars.Reviewed for Affaire de Coeur Magazine. affairedecoeur.


    2. This series hosts quite interesting characters. Lots of laughs and some head shakes included. Not exactly your average mystery. :)


    3. I wish I could give this book more stars! Sunday morning I was up before 5 am and finishing Pumpkin Picking with Murder. I have to tell you that this 2nd book in series is just as wonderful and funny as the first one. Otter Lake is a very exciting place well at least when main character Erica comes home for a visit. Erica and her best friend Freddie have one of the most fun cozy mystery friendships I have ever encountered. I laughed and enjoyed myself reading their antics and adventures. I loved [...]


    4. 2 out of 5 stars, it was just okay. This book took me a lot longer to get through than usual. I kept having to put it down because something in it just pulled me out of the story and it was frustrating.Honestly, this book just wasn't my cup of tea. I expect cozy mysteries set in small towns to have some eccentric characters. that's how it is with small towns. What I don't expect is that they will ALL be that way. Every last character seemed to be "quirky," the main character, Erica, still rebell [...]


    5. On the scale of one to Coco, I am proud to give this the highest rating possible: COCO! The first non-Parra book to get that distinction! This was a fantastic mystery and absolutely hilarious. Auralee Wallace is a great writer who gets the cozy genre and takes it to new heights. I can't wait to read the rest of her books. Do yourself a favor and purchase the best fall cozy out there!


    6. This is the first book I read in the Otter Lake Mystery Series and I really had mixed feelings about it. When I started the book, I almost put it back down. The author just seemed like she was trying too hard to be funny. The characters in Otter Lake all seem to be rather eccentric. Names like KitKat and Tweety, along with the retreat belonging to the mother of the main character holding a vow of silence retreat and the mom miming when she tries to communicate with her daughter just seemed to be [...]


    7. 4 star review. This is the first book that I read in the series, I did like the characters as I found so many funny events, saying, the way they acted, to where my husband had to keep turning the t.v. up so he could hear it over me laughing. Erica Bloom has returned to her hometown of Otter Lake in time for their fall festival, her best friend Freddy Ng has opened his own security firm and is the security guard for the festival it isn't long before Erica and Freddy hear screams coming from the t [...]


    8. This was a cozy mystery and I received it from NetGalley for a review. Erica and her friend Freddie like to solve mysteries in their small town despite the sheriff's warnings as well as family and friends. Freddie was a character that kind of got on my nerves. Erica has a relationship with the sheriff but she keeps jeopardizing it. There is a murder at the fall festival and Erica and Freddie are out to solve it. They get in trouble and risk their lives. I did enjoy it and it was a quick read.


    9. This is the second book in the otter lake series. It is the annual fall festival in Otter Lake and Erica who has recently returned home is trying to enjoy herself. But when a body is found in the tunnel of love and Erica's surrogate aunt is the prime suspect Erica makes it her mission to find the killer.I really enjoyed the relationship between Erica and her friend Freddie. It was an enjoyable read.




    10. About a 3.5. This is the second book in the series, but the first I read -- grabbed it off a library "October" display. The main character is a woman in transition. Having moved away to the Big City in order to get away from her identity as either "the daughter of that weird woman" or "the one who accidentally flashed everybody when she was a teen", she returns to town in order to spend part of her vacation with the local sheriff -- who just so happens to be the person she's been chatting up onl [...]


    11. This series is a hilarious, quirky diversion from the typical cozy mystery. Ms. Wallace does a wonderful job at creating unique, real characters, and her Otter Lake is extremely vivid and different from any other small town mystery setting I've ever read. In this adventure Erika and Freddie, BFF’s from high school, find themselves in the midst of one misadventure after another and soon discover there are things in the past that someone is trying hard to keep hidden. Plenty of suspects and hjin [...]


    12. Erica envisions an idyllic, romantic vacation with her long-time crush, back home at Otter Lake. But, since her crush is Grady, the local sheriff, a sudden death disrupts their plans. When it turns out that the husband of the richest man in town may have been murdered, Grady must question the last person seen with him--Erica's close friend Tweety, whose identical twin Kit Kat warns Erica to stay out of the investigation. But Erica's BFF Henry Ng has different (and grandiose, as usual) ideas. All [...]


    13. I picked this up because I needed something fun and seasonal to read and saw a review complaining that the characters were all too ridiculous–which to me sounded perfect. Erica Bloom visits her hometown (Otter Lake, New Hampshire) hoping that this time nothing goes wrong and she can finally get a relationship with the town’s sheriff to work. Enter a dead man, Erica’s “aunts” being looked at as suspects, Erica’s mother currently taking a vow of silence, and her best friend Freddie who [...]





    14. The second entry in the Otter Lake Mystery series, this book features Erica Bloom back in her hometown, hoping to get together with the handsome sheriff, who also wants to get together with her. However, when she witnesses a dead man on a swan boat coming out of a ride at the local carnival, in the presence of Tweety, who is like family to Erica and her hippie mother. When Tweety is accused of the murder, Erica and her gay, Asian, mega-rich best friend Freddie must put aside all of their persona [...]


    15. This wasn't a bad read, but it wasn't a particularly good one either. It was OK. I like quirky characters, but it seems this author works a bit too hard to make EVERY character quirky. They mystery wasn't bad, but I do have some problems getting around some of the characters. I have the 3rd book. We'll see how it goes. If it's the same as this and the first one, probably done with the series.
