Not quite as cozy as I like, will read the next one and hope it tones down a bit. Too much boozing for my liking, and sexual overtones a bit much for my taste. I don't remember the earlier ones being quite so heavy on the language and sex. Maybe it was just this one. I knew who the villian was about half way through. The others were tougher, but it was fun to visit old friends and keep up on their continuing story.
I have loved this series for the characters and the mystery. However, thIs one left me flat. Kelly did not get as involved in the sleuthing as much as before. It was just a series of phone conversations and gossip. I'm hoping the next one gets back on track.
