Felicia's Food Truck

 This was a collection of 4 short cozies each intended to be read in an hour.  Celia Kinsey created an endearing series with Felicia as the main character.  She owns a food truck that she runs with her BFF, Arnie.   The 4 books also have recurring characters from Detective Scott to several octogenarians who frequent the food truck.  The mysteries vary between robbery, vandalism, and mugging- no murders.  Each have a good degree of twists, false accusations, and misdirection but are readily completed in a short sitting.  

All in all a very enjoyable series that I hope gets new entries in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Enjoyable bite size cozies

This set of 4 stories based around Felicia’s food truck are just a nice length to finish in one sitting for each the stories are fun quirky mysteries involving non murder crimes. The books work well in succession as the characters have a bit more revealed in each. Their personality, the relationships with each other and their pasts are revealed a bit at a time. There are some humorous scenes surrounding the c eaten ve mysteries in NCIS living Felicia, her food truck partner- Arnie, officer Scott- her ex, and the residents of the local senior complex all in all enjoyable reads
