      3.5 starsI enjoyed the first book in the series Murder at Barclay Meadow so I read this book shortly after reading the first book. Maybe I read them too close together because I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first. While I did like this book, it almost seemed like the mystery was secondary and the book was somewhat slow moving for me. The characters do shine in this series. They are interesting and as a reader I did care for them. A lot of detail was given to the start up of the Day Lily [...]

      These two books in this series, so far, are pretty decent. I like the characters.well, except for the sheriff--he seems like an ass. However, Rosalie, her best friend Glenn, Doris, Kevin,I guess I like all of them!! Anyway, the stories are good. I especially like the friendships of this small town. Rosalie just opened the Day Lily Cafe, her dream, when Doris walks in announcing that she needs help because the sheriff was accusing her sister, Lori, of murdering her husband. Rosalie and Glenn jump [...]

      Dollycas’s ThoughtsA couple of months ago received an offer to review this book. I took one look at the cover and knew I had to read this story. I also knew I had to invite the author to visit here for Cozy Wednesday. I was delighted when she accepted. I had not read the first book in the series but I threw that rule of mine right out the window too, but now I plan to go back and read it. Let me tell you why.Rosalie Hart is one of those characters you root for to succeed. She had an ex-husband [...]

      I liked the book. I wish I could say I loved it because I wanted to. I read it quickly because there are only two copies in our library system and I waited for this one. The interaction and development of the characters was very pleasant. It was nice to see Rosalie's dream of the café opening and being successful, for at least the short time that the book covered. The recipes contained at the back of the book could have had a more local flavor to them; I really wanted the shrimp and grits recip [...]

      **I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**Oh wow. This book really was amazing. She managed to touch on a very sensitive subject without it feeling like I was beat over the head with it. The ending was a teensy bit highly unbelievable, but still enjoyable.

      Thank you to Minotaur Books who provided me an ARC in exchange for a honest review. Death at the Day Lily Cafe is the 2nd novel in the Rosalie Hart series. You don't need to read the first novel to understand the second novel. Rosalie moved into her aunt's farmhouse after her divorce. She hired Tyler to farm the land and in this novel she opens her own Cafe. During the cafe's grand opening, Doris, a fellow store owner, wants Rosalie's help to clear her sister's name. Lori is accused of killing h [...]

      A very good book to read for relaxation, I found it hard to review as there was a mystery, a romance, a secret, thievery, and a Grand Opening of an organic cafe. These subjects are all found in this book, making hard to review. There is a lot of background of the characters, farm and cafe. The characters are well developed and the description of the areas is excellent.Rosalie Hart is opening her dream cafe, when her neighbor, Doris asked her to look into the murder of her sister's husband. The s [...]

      Opening a new café in your old hometown can be stressful. That is exactly what Rosalie Hunt did.The town comes under suspicion as a murder takes place and there are so many suspects.Rosalie helps to solve while trying to establish a love interest.My first book by this author. A Good Read!

    14. Rhonda on said:

      The pages of this book may get wet if you're reading a hardback or paperback copy and your kindle may need wiping frequently as this delightful cafe, Day Lily Cafe, is serving up some delectable treats. Throw in mystery, murder, friendship, romance, and danger, and you have a very interesting book. The plot is a bit predictable but most of the characters are easy to like and there's one sheriff to hate. I love little cafes, tucked away in friendly towns, and this book made me want to sit there a [...]

    19. K.A. Davis on said:

      DEATH AT THE DAY LILY CAFE by Wendy Sands Eckel was a good mystery with a great protagonist. Rosalie Hart, in her forties, decides to grow and better herself instead of wallowing in self-pity after an unforeseen divorce. The book delves into relationships: between parents and children and between spouses, and Rosalie provides plenty of introspection. The author seemed to genuinely portray Rosalie’s relationship with her college-aged daughter and the difficulties of wanting to hang on but knowi [...]

There have been fantastical urban suspense, psychotic thrillers, and English style cozies. This book is a combination of a cozy, with the delightful addition of a slow burn romance and a restaurant!

Rosalie is no stranger to crime investigation, so she gets right on that, much to the sheriff's chagrin.

      Death at the Day Lily Cafe is the second book in the Rosalie Hart series by author Wendy Sand Eckel.I like Rosalie Hart. She is a warm-hearted and intelligent woman. In the first book in the series, Rosalie was newly divorced but in Death at the Day Lily Cafe, Rosalie has come to accept and enjoy her new life. Her cafe venture is doing better than she hoped. She has made some wonderful friends. Her daughter is living with her. And that good looking handyman is still around fact they are business [...]

      The book takes place in a small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Rosalie has just opened up the Day Lily Cafe for its grand opening when her friend Doris comes to her for help proving that her sister Lori didn't murder her husband. This is the second book featuring these characters and I gather in the first one Rosalie stumbles onto a dead body in her yard and gets involved in the murder investigation helping to solve it, which is why Doris wants her help this time. Cozy mysteries are not [...]

      I thought I was reading the start of a new series, but this is book 2. That makes a difference. There is history here that I was not aware of. Sometimes in series books you can start in the middle and it doesn't make much difference. Usually, starting in the middle causes me to want to start again at the beginning to find out what I missed. Even though this was just book two, I felt like I had missed some really important history. Why was the sheriff so antagonistic toward Rosalie? What was the [...]

      This second book in the Rosalie Hart series is a charming and fun cozy mystery. Not having read the first book in the series, I was able to keep up with the backstory, which was outlined perfectly without cluttering up the current story. Rosalie is a smart woman who holds her family and friends close to her heart. I enjoyed her compassion for those dear to her and her drive to succeedwhether it be in her new business or in finding her friend innocent of murder. The secondary characters were very [...]

      I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. It is a mystery, but I frequently forgot about the murder victim and was completely engrossed in the Day Lily Café, the employees and customers. The farm was also engaging with its chicken/hawk problems. I have also had to contend with a hawk going after my critters. I enjoyed how the murder was solved and the culprit was a bit of a surprise. I was liking the characters so much I didn't want any of them to be guilty. Well, there is t [...]
