This series improves with each new book. The characters are familiar now, so there seems to be more interaction, instead of explanation.
In this installment, we get to meet The Swine (Alison's ex-husband), and we learn more about Maxie the ghost. There are two investigations going on -- one involving someone from Maxie's past, and one involving someone from Paul's past.
I picked out the villain fairly early, but there were still some interesting twists up until the end. Alison's snarky comments are, as always, amusing.
Overall, a fun read with characters that get better with each new book in the series.
New favorite writer. It was a fast read for me and I loved the characters.
