Another great book in the series! This was the perfect way to start the new year because it was easy to read, full of action and had a happy ending! I loved reading how Lori (the main character) maintains her optimistism even while facing a threat to her family. If you are looking for a book (or series) that has mystery, action, and leaves you with a smile when you close the book - I recommend this one! ( )

Ugh. As far from a cozy mystery as you could get. Far-fetched, forced, and really not much fun or very interesting. Not sure why this author wanted to tell this sort of story, but it seems like it should have been told with different characters or not within this particular series. I just didn't enjoy it. ( )

OK, this is a popular series. It does hearken back to the sweet Miss Marple type books of Agatha Christie, with out even the small thrill. Aunt Dimity is a ghost who rarely even entered the story line, and really had no effect on the book. Everything is tied up just a little too neatly with bow, and of course the bad guy is a lunatic. This was probably one of the least entertaining books I have read in some time. ( )

I know why they gave it the 'Deep Blue Sea' in the title. That's where the main story line goes until the very end of the book. Then it's over and done with so fast with a few more chapters of rehashing so the reader gets the details. Not my favorite, but the recipe looks interesting. ( )
