Barb | 668 comments Last night, I finished an ARC of book #3 from this series, and I have to say, I didn't like it as much as I did the first two. There were far too many characters to keep track of, and their possible motives made it even worse.

IMO, the reveal at the end of the book read more like a Three Stooges skit than the conclusion of a murder investigation -- although maybe that's where the "humor" factor comes into play? I'm not a big fan of books that everyone else finds hilarious -- Agatha Raisin grates on my nerves, and I can't stand Stephanie Plum! -- so maybe it's just me. Hopefully, the rest of you will like it more than I did :)


Mark Baker (carstairs38) | 673 comments I really enjoyed the first in the series. I had a niggle with the second. I'll be reading the third here in a couple of weeks, so we'll see what I think of it.
