A Puzzle to be Named Later (Puzzle Lady #18)A Puzzle to be Named Later by Parnell Hall
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I like the concept of this cozy mystery since I am a crossword fan and constructor as well as big mystery fan and writer, but I think it could be done better. Solving the crossword or the Sudoku won’t help solve the mystery, which was a disappointment. I found the main character, the so-called Puzzle Lady, to be irritating and unlikable. The main appeal for fans, I suppose, is the dialogue, but I found it forced and distracting from what I hoped would be an actual mystery plot. It turned out there was no actual plot. The Puzzle Lady’s outrageous personality and (snappy?) dialogue is the whole thing. You either like it or you don’t.
