It still is an entertaining book and i love Sophie's sense of humour, but she's starting to get on my nerves. The whole self-inflicted, non-existing, self-fabricated drama with Luke is annoying and frankly ridiculous. I'd still recommend it though

This was a cute way to end the series. I wish there was more to the series, but I don't think there is any more to tell.

Sophie Green and Luke Sharpe are at each other's throats - so why are they going on holiday together? Twice?

According to Luke, Sophie's acting like a stupid cow for having broken up with him, and I have to agree. But he's not being much cleverer, and I often felt the urge to throttle them both. Unfortunately, despite the fact she frequently describes Luke being suave and skilled, they both come across as alarmingly inept investigators, blatantly drawing attention to themselves whilst pestering u

This is the 4th book in the series and my least favorite. It seemed that the author was trying too hard to create the storyline. Additionally, the female lead was put into peril so many times that it became very annoying.

Perfect silly, fluffy, light-hearted read for Mother's Day.

3.5 stars.

I really like this series. I got a little impatient in this one, though, and hurried through parts, assuming a certain outcome... only to find several unexpected developments that took things in a different direction (which is good). I don't think there's a fifth in the series, despite this one having come out 2 years ago, and I'm not sure what that means. Was this intended to be climactic? I could see how it might be taken that way, but if this was the intended conclusion of a series

This might be my second favorite of the Sophie Green Mysteries. (I, Spy? being #1).

Sophie actually got quite irritating with her woe-is-me attitude through out the first half of the book - especially considering it was over a situation she created for herself. butI was happy with the ending. And I felt like overall, the book did a solid job of wrapping up the series.

I'm sad to not have any new books to look forward to though.

Sophie Green is on holiday with her professional spy co-workers, including her ex-boyfriend, when a woman mysteriously turns up dead in a nearby cave. Sophie's interest is piqued when she casually investigates and someone tries to kill her in the same cave. Out of a job and with only the dumbest blonde dog ever as a trusted companion, Sophie sets out to solve the murder and save her own life.

It was a little slower than the other books. Not my favorite Sophie Green storyline, there wasn't as much action or something was missing because it seemed so slow that I actually forgot that the story of Maria meeting her new love interest happened in this book. But I still enjoyed the characters and can't wait to see what happens in the next book!

This is my least favorite of the sohpie green books. Uninteresting mystery, too many woe is me conversations from sophie and no real closure on the future of sophie and luke. I read a lot of the book and couldn't even tell what was going on, especially in the action scenes. There were too many suspects to know what was going on with the mystery.

This was a great book. Sophie is totally someone I would want as a friend. I can't wait to read the next one. I was glad to see that Sophie and Luke both came through the events of book 3 okay to continue their attraction and chemistry in this book. The end of book 3 had me in tears.

I think I got this as a kindle freebie years ago. I liked it OK. It was quick and had some action.

I started with book 4, though (not my usual habit) and so I wasn't invested in the characters. Maybe if I had started at book 1 I would have liked it better.

It was very entertaining ;-) A little too much on the woe-is-me relationship stuff, but I'm hooked. Kate Johnson is looking for a market for her fifth book. I'm keeping my eye out...

This was the fourth book in the series and I enjoyed each and every one of them. Read on the author's page that a fifth one is in the works. I'm looking forward to that one too.

Quick read, light read, predictable mystery/romance format. Just some nice fluff to round out a boring day.

I really like Sophie Green...she's nuts! And fun. And easy to become "Friends" with.
