Why I Read it: I really like Sudoku puzzles
I know this is going to sound negative, but I didn't hate this book by no means...
I actually really enjoyed reading about the Sudoku puzzles and tournaments and even enjoyed the mystery.
I just felt it wasn't as friendly as most "cozies" normally are, and the writing style just didn't flow right for me. I found myself re-reading certain parts because it either lost my interest or it didn't make sense the way I read the words.
