I tried but I couldn't finish this book. I actually made it through more than 2/3 of the book but decided than I don't want to waste more time on it. After all this pages the book hasn't even been near to what it was described and I just got too bored. This is probably because it is the 13th book in a series, some might say it's a cozy mystery only, without much mystery up until where I stopped reading.
Unfortunately I don't have anything positive to say about it.
