As with all hers, it was a fun & quick read with lots of witty dialogue. Great wrap up to the Who Done It mystery woven throughout the last 5 stories.
I no longer keep every book Jeffries writes, and sometimes I get a bit lost when her characters are discussing the plot points that they remember better than I do, but I always enjoy reading her books and cannot wait for the next one, whether it's related or not.
Well this is book 5 in the series and it did wrap up nicely though I will have to say that a couple of times I wanted to toss it across the room due to the repeating of the I am so not worthy,if he/she only loved me, blah blah blah... and it went on and on. Other than that it was great.
