Seems like I had her first book (Hooked on Murder) on my Wish List a long time before I finally got it...so I assumed it must be pretty good.  But, I'm really having a hard time pushing through it.  I don't know if it's the main character's personality, or the lack of personality in the secondary characters, but it's pretty blah.

Does anybody else have an opinion about this book?  I'm thinking I may take the second book off my Wish List, and just forget about this series.

I really loved her book-  I know that at times, you can just not like an author that everyone else likes- I know many people like the Fran Rizer moutary books, and I cant stand them- why waste time on a book or author you dont like?

Thanks for your input!  Maybe I will like it better when I'm actually finished with it.  Monica Ferris is one of my favorites too :)
