The body of a flashy real estate developer is found in Gator Lake, and the alligator is blamed. The Paradise Palms tennis team must find the real killer before their favorite gator, Big Joe, is hunted down and slaughtered. Packi Walsh's snooping uncovers real estate fraud, irate investors, an affair between a trophy wife and her tennis pro, and a connection between the friendly neighborhood pharmacist and the New Jersey mob. One of them tries to silence Packi by making her gator bait.

Gator Bait is incredibly boring with dull characters and a tiresome plots that drag on and on. It's hard for me to sympathize with an alligator, and it's not believable for this character to go to such lengths to save one. If she's not whining about the alligator, she's whining about being accepted by the Her new friends. The narrator doesn't help. Her monotonous voice contributed to this disastrous and tedious story. I stopped listening and returned it.

I gave this series one last chance and now I'm done. I don't know why the Grimlock series works but this one doesn't. The dialogue and humor falls flat or is over the top silly. I didn't even finish it.

This is one of my favorite cozy mystery series. I enjoy Geneva's antics and the relationships between the characters, and, how they work together to solve the mystery. I look forward to the next book.

This book might appeal to others, but it I didn't couldn't get into it. The characters were stereotypical and unappealing ,and I couldn't get into the mystery.
