"Stephanie Plum meets the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Non-southerners will find the madcap adventure an informative peek into an alien culture." (Kirkus Reviews)
Was this THE BEST book I've listened to? No, but it was fun and light and I enjoyed it! In fact, I'm getting the next Sarah Booth Delaney book to listen too.
What a great addition to a wonderful series. If you like the cozy, you're in for a treat, a unique setting and voice combined with a mystery for you to solve. This series never fails to satisfy.
I enjoyed this book immensely. The main characters were fun. The rhetoric reminded me of how some of my girlfriends and I talk. The story line was good albeit a bit predictable. Worth the time to listen.
The narrator was good or I would not have been able to stick this one out.
Beside the heroine obsessing on her sad lovelife, the family ghost obsessing on the heroine's lovelife and the heroine's best friend and PI partner obsessing on her lovelife, the mystery doesn't have a lot of room. Luckily it is a very thin mystery.
There was also some factual errors that were just due to sloppy research. For instance, it's been decades since anyone has had to go to Sweden for a sexual reassignment operation.
