the new characters are giving the series new energy, the 3 old ladies was getting a bit predictable. Kept me guessing on who did it.
What made the experience of listening to April Fool Dead the most enjoyable?
Just when you think the general pace of the story slows down a bit, here comes something else up and running.
What three words best describe Kate Reading’s performance?
Reads characters well.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Very pleasant and laid back.
This was an okay addition to the Death on Demand Mystery series. This story seemed to lack the usual fun of the other books. I'm glad that Laurel didn't play a large role in this book but the role she did play wasn't believable. The story was just off.
