did not like it

I did not like this book. Toward the end I was still listening to find out who the "bad guy" was but after a while, I just didn't care anymore and felt it was a waste of my time. I have enjoyed the Anna Pigeon character in previous books, but this book was not enjoyable for me. Too much time was given to what was going on inside the characters heads. I got so tired of everything being compared to the theater life Anna had previously. The sky couldn't just be blue - it had to be the blue of the stage curtain that was used with so-and-so play and when so-and-so actor was performing!
In addition there are characters that seem to act crazy and then sane then crazy again. Anna kept getting into life-threating situations over and over that just didn't make sense. About the third one, I gave up. Perhaps if I had stayed with the book until the end, all these things may have made sense, but I just wasn't into it anymore.
