    A man as the amateur sleuth is new and soap making is a new business to me. I liked the soap making and family parts. The clue seemed a little bit obscure for my taste. The romance was a bit more than I wanted. Mostly because I really hate the love triangle and it seems to be string up that way. So good cozy, but not great.

Ben decides to do some sleuthing and figure out who the real killer is. This is actually a great book, I enjoyed these types of murder mysteries. The characters are good and well written for mystery fiction. Within entertaining, interesting, realistic cast of characters from the protagonists to the rest of the characters. I assumed it the writer put a lot of work into each character as well as the setting and plot. The Mistry is your standard whodunit, the way a whodunit should be written, nothing is held back and the clues are given when sleuth figures them out. The capturing of the smalltime life is spot on.

    Cute and lighthearted Not bad considering the subject matter. A nice light read as a palette cleanser between heavier reads etc. I call these types of mysteries "junk food books".

    Tim Meyers is turning into one of my favorite authors. I was not sure that a gentlemen could write a good cozy mystery because of the crafting element. I mean, really, how many men have you seen in the crafting section of the store? but, Time Meyers has surprised me over and over. I loved his candle making series, and now I am working my way through his soap making series. He has a wonder handle on the soap making business, and the craft itself. I love that part of the book.

I loved his candle making series, and now I am working my way through his soap making series. He has a wonder handle on the soap making business, and the craft itself. I love that part of the book. It appeals to the crafer in me and that is the min reason that I love the whole cozy mystery genre in the first place. The other thing that appeals to me is the whole Perkins family clan. I mean we are talking a large family, in a time when large families are kinda out of fashion, yet there is Ben, the big brother that is expected to just take care of everyone in the family and to right all wrongs and banish all evil. Makes me want to be part of that family, to have a big brother like ben to take care of everything for me. This book starts with the discover of a soap supplier, who just happened to be dating one of Ben's sister's dead on the back door. Ben's sometime girlfriend Molly, is on the police department, but Ben's over bearing Mom is determined that he meddle into the investigation to clear his sister. Another wonderful book by Tim Meyers and another wonderful series.

    “Benjamin Perkins, eldest son of a large family who own the boutique Where There's Soap, finds the dead body of one of their suppliers sprawled at the bottom of the back stairs of their small business. Ben's sister Louisa, who had been dating the deceased Jerry Sanger but recently found out he had been two-timing her, becomes the police's prime suspect in the murder. At the request of their mother, Ben investigates Jerry's murder on his own in order to clear his sister” This Myers book was just “Benjamin Perkins, eldest son of a large family who own the boutique Where There's Soap, finds the dead body of one of their suppliers sprawled at the bottom of the back stairs of their small business.

    A quick read, an interesting mystery. It is the first in a new soapmaking series. The hero and his family own a soap shop, and by teaching a class, the hero tells the reader quite a bit about craft soap making. It doesn't hit you over the head, and I liked the characters. Some of the hero's amateur sleuthing made the policework look really bad - and the convenient "ex-girlfriend who still pines for him" cop always showing up when the police are called - is she the only police office the town has A quick read, an interesting mystery.

I hope that is cleaned up (sorry about that pun) in the next soapmaking mystery.

    I stopped reading this about 1/2 through the first chapter. I did try to persue the rest of the book, but I gave that up too. This is written by a man, and the main character (a man) seemed weak to me...his mother is overbearing and his siblings are equally as bad.... The cop in charge of the investigation immediately made a huge mistake in placing blame without any type of investigation. A Very Weakly written book indeed.

    Book 1 in the soapmaking mystery series opens with Ben Perkins finding a body on the steps of his family's store. When his sister becomes a suspect his family looks to him to find the real culprit. I would say the mystery is only average. But, I did find it to be a refreshing twist that the police officer in the story was a woman while it was a man doing the snooping. I will read more in the series.

    I've been up and down with this book. I love the soap making and the big family they feel so alive. With that big of a family It was hard to choose my favorite character it would change as I would read. Ben is a good detective I'm glad he actually solved the murderer was not who I expected. Actually can't wait to read the next one. I've been up and down with this book. I love the soap making and the big family they feel so alive.

    Since I started making my own soap from a Melt and Pour kit I enjoyed that this is the way the series started. I hope the next book goes into the soapmaking a little bit deeper. I can't think of anything more enjoyable then stiring my batch of soap as it heats up, watching the oils blend together can be very relaxing.

    I am enjoying this series very much. I do wish there were more details about the soap making processes. Sounds like a fun hobby! Good mystery and can't wait for more. I even ordered his other two series based on how much I enjoyed this series. I am enjoying this series very much. I do wish there were more details about the soap making processes.

    I think this was a poorly written book. I barely managed to finish it. I could go on and on about my issues with it but I'll stick with the Louisiana cake mystery books instead of this author - the way he writes is predictable, over the top, and not very enjoyable for me at all.
