The book just rambled. I'm hoping it eventually got to a point or some sort of action plan, I just couldn't hang in there. It kept going in circles without giving any kind of real information.
There was no story.
I probably wouldn't have made it past the first page if I hadn't been plugged into an audio book and taking a walk.
This is basic Stefanie Plum formula: exploding car, Ranger vs. Morelli, Lula in spandex, Grandma Mazur going to viewings. Nothing new, nothing predictable. But, as always, it is good for several hours of mindless amusement. The narrator is fabulous - she has an amazing range of character voices. Sometimes I forgot it was only one person doing the reading.
The story was so disjointed. I understand that the author was telling it from various viewpoints, but it went so slowly that I kept losing interest.
This was my first book in this genre. I probably will not try another.
I didn't even have a favorite scene. I just felt apathy for the whole thing.
I wanted to like this. The premise was good. The narrator was good. I liked the idea of the different narrators. It just didn't come together enough to hold my interest. Bummer.
I loved the story (I'd seen the movie many times but never knew there was a book). I thought the reader had a great voice for the main character. The only thing that bothered me from time to time was that I could hear her audibly swallowing and/or breathing between sentences. Sometimes I would not notice it, but other times it drove me crazy. I would, however, still recommend this version.
