Who doesn't like pizza right??? Well i thought it would be fun to read a fluff mystery about a pizza contest and murder that sounded like a thriller to me! I had read book 1 and it was ok. Not being able to get my hands on any others in between i picked up book 5. I don't read alot of fluff so this may be the reason why but it just was so silly to me. I felt i was wasting my time and have no idea why i finished it. The police do not ask 2 sisters who run a pizza place to help "snoop around" a murder case. The security officer who used to be a police man does not act like a big ole idiot and talk like a high school kid. The line to the maids about having to eat in the kitchen was terrible even as a joke. This book just didn't take me away, cause any emotion, or even make me laugh. I did not care who won the contest or even who the killer was. 2 1/2 stars only because i managed to finish it.
