It's OK if you don't mind a totally stupid "heroine" who gets herself into all sorts of unnecessary trouble while wise cracking all the time. Actually some of the jokes are good, but the story was a disappointment.
This protagonist is a "60's" character. I didn't like her enough to make the book a good read for me, but loaned it to my niece and she loved it, so it has more appeal to a baby boomer than a senior citizen.

Helpful Score: 1
I rated this book a '5' because it was a '1' for plot but a '10' for the setting, which was Colorado Springs! If the book hadn't have taken place in Colorado Springs, I probably would have put it down right away. The mystery was enjoyable but it seemed like the author recycled a lot of the same lines and jokes throughout the book. Nevertheless, I will be seeking out more of this author's work. :)
