I have really enjoyed this series, so far. However, this book includes to much background information from previous books and the plot is incredibly predictable. One of the reasons I continued to read this series is because I was looking forward to seeing the characters grow and develop through their relationships and actions. Gin started the series as a distinct, layered and complicated character. In this book she is none of these things. In fact she loses almost any credibility as a character that she had. She is this mysterious shadowy assassin with magical powers, but is seems that by the end of the book the only person who doesn't know that is her nemesis Mab Monroe. For a shadowy assassin she doesn't do overly much to protect her secret. That being said, the one redeeming factor of the book was the whole situation with Bria and Owen. This book is about her Gin's tangled emotional threads. About her love for Grayson, love she finally accepts and about her estranged sister and the difficult but hopeful reunion between the two siblings. Unfortunately, Estep ended up getting tangled in her own writing. While the reunion was nicely done as a whole it happened 200 pages too late to save the book. Despite all that I can't say that I hated the book. I didn't find it terribly interesting or exciting and I skipped a lot of pages. In my opinion it is the weakest in an otherwise solid and intriguing series. I will read the next book in hopes that it is much better. Although it deserves one star, I'm giving it 2 based on the strength of the series and my hope for its future.
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.
I bought this book because I enjoyed the first 3 books in the series. They were funny, had recipes and involved a murder mystery. In this book, the mystery took a backseat to everything that happened. Chloe solves the murder but only because she overhears someone's conversation. This was more chick lit than a murder mystery. I'll read the next book, only because this one ended in a cliffhanger.
