Killer Sudoku Reviews
I saw this book at Barbara's Bookstore at O'Hare and as a fan of cozies, I was intrigued, even though I don't play sudoku. I found the premise intriguing, set at a sudoku tournament with an assortment of oddball characters. I liked Liza Kelly, the protagonist, and found her curious and humorous, but toward the end, the plot got a little over the top and outrageous, although always fast-paced. While I don't mind a bit of out there happenings in my cozies, this one seemed to pile on lots of murders (a total of 4) to the point that it somewhat detracted from the story, but not by a lot. My favorite part was the use of sudoku in solving the crime, which reminded me of another series I loved, the tattoo shop mysteries by Karen E. Olson. I was intrigued enough to want to read more, and have a feeling sudoku fans will like these mysteries even more than I did.
Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars... I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be on the look out to pick up more from the series/author.5 stars... I loved this book! It had earned a permanent home in my collection and I'll be picking up the rest of the series and other books from the author ASAP.
I love cozy mysteries. This is not a favorite though. I like sudoku so I will finish the series.Liza is a sudoku editor. She is in California for a Sudoku tournament. She has her elderly neighbor with her. Her exhusband and a guy from her home town who is trying to date her show up at the tournament for support and her fan base. As usual trouble follows her and there is an accidental death during the tournament. Then there is another accidental death soon after. Or are they accidental? Liza will find out.
Another Sudoku Championship, another set of murders. At this rate if Sudoku expert Liza K is scheduled to appear in your town, RUN AWAY! Predictable but fun and since the book I was reading was a library discard, I got to do the puzzles in the book before throwing it and it tons of coffee stains away.
Killer Sudoky was ok, but too many deaths and extraneous Sudoku puzzles/information. If I find another book by the author at a thrift store, I'd pick it up but I wouldn't seek it out at a full-price bookstore.
Pretty basic mystery but enjoyed the puzzles included.
Stopped after chapter three. Sanguine and sappy, yuck! I still love sudoku puzzles! Forgive me, sudoku.
Easy, fun read
Next in the series of Sudoku mysteries - easy cozy mysteries.
A nice easy read with tips for sudoku fans.
