I look for to the Abby Cooper mysteries. This book was no different. For the most part I enjoyed it. The mystery was solid, Dutch and Abbey were great. However, the book lost a star with Abby's sister Cat and MJ. #1 I don't like when books go back and forth with the past and present. It doesn't increase the suspense it only becomes a distraction. #2 The inclusion of MJ and Gilley was annoying. The two characters were out of place and didn't add to the progression of the story. They could have been eliminated and Candace and Milo could have played a bigger role in the story. #3 Cat was completely out of character. In the past she has always been a little over the top. But she has never been so obnoxious and over bearing. I expected her to plan an extravagant wedding, but I also expected the wedding to be sophisticated and stylish. The wedding that she planned did not reflect anyone's style. It was actually tacky and offensive. If it was meant to include humor into the story it fell far from it's mark. #4 although Abby's parents were mentioned in the book and it was explained why they would not be attending the wedding, I expected them to attend anyway. In previous books they were described as social climbers and wanting to be in the center of attention. Plus they have a relationship with Cat. The addition of the parents could have served as comic relief and unnecessary drama instead of including MJ and Gilley, and going back and forth with the past and present. I found myself skipping through the book at some points because it was too much. I will buy the next book but if it continues to over exaggerate comic situations I might have to say goodbye to Abby and Dutch.
This book might be good but I will never now. The narrator's voice is so annoying that I couldn't get into the story.
This is an entertaining and fun book. I recommend it to anyone who likes mystery and paranormal books.
I've had enough of this series. I'm over the cheesy dialogue, the over done sex scenes and a little bit of violence to keep the plot moving. If J R Ward wants to write a romance novel she needs to learn that romance isn't hardcore sex and people declaring that someone belongs to them. Bring back Jane and V or Rhage and Mary. At the rate this series is going, I'm done.
This is the weakest book of the series. The"Long Game" is being drawn out. I think they should just get to it.
There are no words to describe how great this book is. It is quite possbly the funniest and most entertaining series around at this time. This is a must read book.
Rachel Morgan is an awesome character. I love the world that has been created for her as well as the supporting characters who are involved in the story. This is a great book and a great series.
This is one of the best books in the series. Sky, Wally and Simon are at their best. I can't wait until I read the next book.
Denise Swanson has kept this long running series fresh and interesting. Murder of the Cat's Meow is an entertaining and fun read. There were many twists and turns and lots of interesting characters. I would recommend this book and this series to anyone.
This is a very good book with great characters. The only thing I don't like is all of the name dropping. I've read all four books in this series and would recommend them to anyone who likes mysteries.
I enjoyed the fast pace and the characters in this story. Melanie is a likeable character who happens to be a general contractor. I like the way she pairs her masculine job with her frilly outfits. Mel is smart, strong-willed, funny and loyal. She works in a man's world and is able to hold her own. The ghostly aspects were well-handled and often very creepy indeed. This is a must read series. It a realistic mystery and interesting characters to make it a good read. Also, the setting of San Fransico and the historic homes make this series even more intersting.
