Really enjoyed the first half of this book - characters are fairly well developed (I loved Aunt Bea), dialogue is snappy, plot has some unique characteristics that keep it from being entirely cliche for the genre. However, the secondary characters (Aunt Bea, Freddy, Featherby & William, etc.) really steal the show. The attraction between Abby & Max feels forced and I really could not have cared less if they ended up together or not.

Also grating was the fact that all the conflicts are wrapped up neat and tidy with little effort or action shown on the part on the main characters. In fact, the main threat/antagonist is dealt with entirely off screen by Max while Abby and her sisters wait at home. There's definitely a lot more 'telling' than 'showing' in this book.

Still a fun and light-hearted read, but not a re-read.
