A light mystery about the world of figure skating
Very slow action...took for ever to get anywhere....
I had a hard time getting into this one. The beginning was rather boring, but once it got past the intial chapter it seemed to smooth out. Unfortunetly, that was an illusion. The author simply tried too hard to make this one feel cozy. Too many bad references to TV detectives, too much campiness. I gave up 1/2 way through. There are too many good books out there to waste time with one that isn't!
It doesn't matter whether or not you like ice skating, if you like a good clean murder/mystery, this is it!
As a great fan of ice skating, I was really looking forward to reading this book. I managed to get to page 35 before changing my mind. It started off wonderfully. The author gives the MC, Bex Levy, a truly great sense of dry humor and at one point had me really laughing. Then the foul language took over. The language covered pretty much all the swear words I have ever heard. This is one thing I just don't like in a cozy mystery. This is just MHO, and I know it doesn't bother other folks. Then we get to the murder itself. By that time I was pitching it. I'm sorry about this, because it had the making of a good read. To me, if an author can't come up with better language than the constant use of foul words they should go back to their Thesaurus until they can find better.
