** spoiler alert ** I wanted to like this book, but I was really annoyed with the main character of Chloe. She just came off as too wimpy and nervous for my liking.

Plus, the writing was really slow and if I read one more time in the first few chapters about how it was Chloe's first day on the job, I was going to throw the book across the room. She must have said it twenty times! Enough already.

The premise was a good one, but the story and characters just didn't work for me.

Deb I'm reading Old World Murder right now. I live in Wisconsin and have visited Old World Wisconsin where the story takes place. I love the setting and like Chloe very much.

Grey853 Everyone likes different things, which is why these reviews can be so helpful. The setting was a good one, but I didn't like Chloe and for me the main character is often the reason I read a book and stick with a series.
