Though I’ve tried for quite some time, I just can’t seem to finish Delivering the Truth.
The mystery is a good one. Someone started a fire that killed several and Rose is looking for the perpetrator.
There is a sweet romance between Rose and the local doctor. They’re adorable if a bit awkward.
I think one of my biggest issues with Delivering the Truth are that the thees and the thys in Minnie’s speech were difficult to get used to. Every time she spoke I had t ore-read it to make sure I was understanding correctly. I also felt that the story was very slow. I just kept wishing she’d get to the point.
While Delivering the Truth wasn’t for me, I did buy a copy for a friend who loves cozies and she devoured and raved about it.
