I love this author! There are many pluses to this book. Some of the Christmas things she comes up with are clever. The mystery was not very developed this time, no clues for the 1st 175 pages,but the story is moving well in those 175 pages. It was the last 100 that went wrong. I was disappointed in the reveal, and the ending. Having said that I cant wait till the next book to see what happens in Josie's life.
I just love the Mystery Shopper series! I think Josie is a great heroine and the books are fun.
I was very disappointed in this book. I rushed to the store over the holidays since I really like the Mystery Shopper series, but when I started reading... Josie is angsty and guilt-ridden and Amelia is suddenly a horrible, nightmare child. The book was not fun and certainly not light as was the rest of the series. It might not have been so bad, but I had such high expectations based on how much I like the rest of the series.
