Great Mystery - Main Characters Getting Dull
on June 28, 2015
By this, the third book, I was beginning to get a little bored with Harper. While the mysteries she's dealing with are fascinating (and in this particular book sickening and nightmarish) her own story line isn't progressing in a way that keeps me wanting to keep coming back to see what's going on with her.
I predicted her and Tolliver's relationship almost precisely, and I have to say that I'm happy Ms. Harris didn't throw in too much angst in this regard. I appreciate that they're both acting like adults and making their own decisions, without allowing outside sources to muddy the waters too much.
This particular mystery was utterly heinous. The previous ones were bad, but geez. This one was just awful. At one point I had to close to book and let myself remember that I was just reading a fiction-book, not a newspaper.
There were a few twists and turns that kept you on your toes a bit, so
overall this book was decent, and I do want to read the final one. It wasn't anything super special but it wasn't crap either. 3 stars.
