humorous

This was an enjoyable listen. The story isn't very complex and the characters aren't well developed, but it is humorous and light-hearted. Great if you aren't looking for a deep read.

I can't eecommend it

I enjoy reading well written cozy mysteries that include believable characters and a realistic plot. I didn't find that in this story. Not only was the plot unbelievable, but, the characters were one dimensional and flat. I felt like the author just put something together without much of a plan as to how to develop it. The narrator didn't help either. Laurie Lane sounded like a grown woman trying to imitate a child. This book did not work for me.
