Can hardly wait for her next one!

I also wish I could have the time back that I spend reading the book and the money spent buying it.

The main character has been getting too silly in last few books...this is the problem.

I've read every book in this series. They started off mildly entertaining, but they've been declining in quality since Play It Again, Spam. I've picked up the latest release each year, hoping that the quality would improve, but these hopes were always dashed. I'm not sorry to see this series end. I want the hours I spent reading this book back!

Don't know what is worse - the time wasted to read it or the money spent on buying it.
No plot to speak of, the intended "comic ramblings" do appear more to be more a product of a very sick mind.
Very disappointing - I liked Magdalena in the earlier books - too bad that lack of literary prowess of her creator caused the heroin to loose any credibility at all. Magdalena is not credible in any aspect - as a mother, a wife, a detective.
Even the recipes are downloaded from a website.

The only positive aspect is that it would appear to be the end of this series: started out good - shame that it ends on such a low note.

while this series has always had slapstick and slighty-incredible storylines, this latest (and last??) entry is just horribly absurd. In summary, it is rambling, sloppy and self-indulgent. There are none of the laugh-out-loud moments from earlier books in the series. I almost hope this IS the last, as Magdalena has just become a parody of herself. I read this entire series in the past 5 months and also have the Den of Antiquity series to read, but now I think I'll wait a while before tackling that series...

Format: Paperback
I have read the entire series and although there have been some other disapointments, none was this bad. There are entire sections that have no link to the story, as though there was a requirement for word count by the publisher and a couple chapters thrown in. The author phoned this one in and it is a shame to end (either get a ghost writer or end it now) on such a flimsy edition. Sad. But as others have said or intimated, it makes it easy to say goodbye. Don't buy this one. But the recipes may be better than her other books since these come from a legitimate source. Even if they seem to have no meaning to the plot or characters.

I have to agree with the other poor Reviews given this book. I thought maybe it was just me & I was getting bored with the COZY MYSTERY genre. This story was so tedious & silly, had a hard time finishing reading it. The earlier books in this series were enjoyable.

I used to love this series and have read every book in it. I started getting a little tired of it a few books back and this book made me decide to not buy any more of the series. I thought the author would "fix" the problem somewhere and it would get better again, but alas, it hasn't. The main character has been getting too silly in last few books...this is the problem. She started out as humorous but has become tedious in her slapstick comedy ways. The plots are getting unbelievable as well. I can't give away the plot without doing a spoiler alert here but trust me, you will be aggravated with it also. And the ending...well, has the author decided to end the series or what? You don't do an ending like this if you want your readers to keep on reading the series. I'm really peeved over this ending.

I've enjoyed this series since its beginning and I agree with the other comments. This has to be the last in the series but it seems that the author, perhaps in a hurry to begin a new series?, skimped on this one. Tt ended too abruptly and, to be honest, unsatisfactory in regards to all of the much-loved characters. Hope her new series' plots and characters are as good as Magdalena and Abigail.

I was not happy with this book at all. Magdalena has always been over the top and exaggerated -- this time is it just absolutely ridiculous!

I will not make the mistake of buying another of these books.
