I am starting to read Tortoise Soup, the second in this series but my first one and not sure if I want to continue. Anyone read and like these that can tell me if this is a good series? I know the first ones aren't always the best so am willing to give them a chance if anyone can reccomend them.

Thanks for any comments good or bad.

I liked 'em - I didn't like 'em.  Some of them I was totally immersed in the story and others left me wondering why I was wasting my time with it.  I did read them in order when they came out and I know I have one or two on my TBR pile.  Just a sittin' & waitin'.

Thanks Geri, I managed to finish the one I was reading but don't think I will bother with another one. Too many books I really love to read one that is just so-so. I understand though when you are invested in a series you have to keep reading, been, there, done that - just don't want to on this series.

I really like the books, and have read every one in the series.

Thanks for the feedback Lisa. I know I can't really tell from only one book.

If I remember right, I DNF'd the first book after my required 50 page attempt. It was some years ago though so I can't remember exactly WHY I didn't continue reading it.

Thanks Cheryl, I was very tempted to not finish the one I read and don't think I will read another. I don't really even like the main character very much.
