I found this book to be a bit of a letdown. I LOVE Elaine Viets (especially her Dead End Jobs series), but this one just seemed to drag on. There were plenty of suspects and a pretty decent plot, but there seemed to be too many wasted pages (pages with parts that don't advance the plot and don't really need to be in there). I was rather disappointed.
I like this series a lot. I wish he'd written more than just the three titles in it. I love the little pop culture/TV references and the "behind the scenes" info about shooting a TV show or movie. The main character is very likable and the plot is fast paced. There is ALWAYS something going on. It's also got a few little twists toward the end. Very good book !
AWESOME book!!!! Great plot, believable characters, no wasted pages!!!! So good. I did have an idea about who the killer was, but even so, when all was explained, I was more than satisfied. Can't wait to read the other two in this series!
I did not really care for this book. I found the main character to be a tad annoying and there were quite a few sections that were very dull. I did not feel there was much investigating or even information that pertains to the mystery until the last quarter of the book. I wound up skimming a lot just to get to the end. No going to try another in this series.
This was a good book and it definitely keeps you wanting to read on. However, I did figure out the killer fairly early on which is always kind of a bummer. And I did not care for the graphic sex scenes- I read a mystery for just the mystery.
I liked this book a lot. Good plot and hard to predict too. I realize it is part of the Augusta Goodnight series (this is the first I have read in the series), but the story really could have worked even without the angel and her little helper.
decent overall- the first half of the book was kind of slow (pretty much all that happened was the murder and the police suspecting her!), but the second half was a lot better (more sleuthing,etc). There was a good twist at the end that I didn't see coming.
*although I get that it's a "food" mystery, I felt there was Too Much description of food in it
I did not like this book. The blurb on the back is a tad misleading (at least the way I took it) and I found that I just did not care about these characters at all. It's mainly about ghosts and them trying to get to the afterworld. And the mystery plot is barely a mystery at all. You pretty much know from early on who the murderer is. One of my least favorite books.
Overall I liked it. It was kind of like an old fashioned whodunit but a more modern version. There were a lot of potential suspects and people doing things they shouldn't have been doing and secrets that were exposed. I will definitely read the next book in this series.
