OK I have finished it.

One thing at the end bothered me and don't know if it's me or I just missed it.

Janet the second murder victim was gay. Really where apart from the end where they said, was there anything remotely pointing at that in the book? Where were the hints at that then?

Beth Stewart | 608 comments I missed the gay factor altogether. It was mentioned at the beginning that Janet latched on to Shirley but I didn't interpret that as gay.

AngryGreyCat (angrygreycatreads) | 565 comments I thought it was a unrequited girl- crush type thing, with Janet and Shirley. Not necessarily gay, but just some kind of clingy/co-dependent relationship. I believe I remember some comments about the oddness of the relationship at some point early on in the book.

This book seemed to have an identity crisis. It seems on the surface like a cozy, but it doesn't really have that feel to it. Books like this can have a hard time being marketed because they don't fit neatly into a niche.

I thought it was an okay read, if not very flattering for women, with all the gossipy backstabbing stereotype kind of characters.

Beth Stewart | 608 comments I just thought Shirley was odd. Mind you, they were all rather odd in their own backstabbing, gossipy way
