Shannon (Giraffe Days) I actually liked the short story-type format, so I don't think that was my problem with the book at all. The little murder mysteries were interesting but they were solved in such "pat" ways, often through no detective skills at all but rather coincidence or good timing. I just had no idea what they were talking about half the time! You could picture them giving each other knowing looks and raised eyebrows and smug smiles at the expense of the reader.

If the setting had been more richly described I probably would have enjoyed it more, though.
