My opinion: I have enjoyed Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen mysteries even though they are considered to be cozy mysteries and have to admit that I have grabbed a couple of cookie recipes out of those book that have thrilled my recipients. When I saw this non-cozy mystery by her, I jumped at the opportunity to review it. It was thoroughly disappointing. Because her other series is fun, it was more engaging than this book.
The writing in this book feel incredibly flat and was WAY too light. It almost had the feeling that the writing simply went through the motions. With characters that didn't rise to the same level of fun as in the Hannah Swensen books, this had the feeling of being a dime a dozen book.
