I like all the series that Elaine Viets writes. You have to read the books in order of course. I was disappointed in this book but finished it hoping hoping book 6 is better. She didnt mystery shop too much, and it was way too much about puppy mill dogs. I am also sick of the characters unrealistic love life.
This book is hilarious. Viets is a very funny, infectious writer with a way with words. All her secret shopping books make for an enjoyable, cozy read. My favorite line from one of her books is when she goes secret shopping at one of those huge discount stores. Her cart gets stuck in something gooey on the floor and try as she might, shc can't get it loose. She wrote that it was stuck "like a mastadon in the LaBreya Tarpits." (Not sure how that is spelled, so forgive me, if it's wrong)
