Yes, if you have read newer Christopher Moore, this one is sure to disappoint. If you are reading it to find out where Moore started out, then it is interesting. You can really see how far he's come in developing characters, dialogue and story.
It's much like reading an early Stephen King novel like Carrie after reading Duma Key. You can see the resemblence, but the maturity shows through in the later writing.
I think Lisa Wingate has talent and the potential to write a good book. However, this is not the one. Everything was there--character, plot, mystery--and then she neatly tied up all the loose ends in the last 20 minutes and everyone lived happily ever after, which is OK for a Fannie Flagg story, but more is expected from the next generation of writers.
