Homicide and Halo-Halo Review

Amazon | Bookshop

Arsenic and Adobo introduced me to the world of cozy mysteries when I got it from Book of the Month last year. Homicide and Halo-Halo has a very similar tone – but this time takes place during a teen beauty pageant! 

I’ve taken up crochet during my new long Covid lifestyle, and this was the perfect book to put on while I was crocheting! 

My least favorite part of mystery series in general is that the lovers never get together. I read way too much romance to be strung along like this for multiple books. The romance plot line in this one felt very CW teen series circa 2004 – who will she choose? 

I actually guessed part of the who dunnit this time around – I’m very proud of myself!

I read this for the PopSugar Reading Challenge – a book by a Pacific Islander author. Check out my complete list of PopSugar recommendations! And stay tuned to see if I can finish my last 9 prompts by the end of the year…as of today that just means I need to finish a book every 5 days. Easy peasy. 😅
