This is the third in the series. It is filled with engaging characters. Vinnie is likeable, smart, and a tough cookie. She is accident-prone and wryly funny. The plot is not grandiose and there is no deep mystery here. Just a good, fun, enjoyable story. I appreciate that she isn't smug and pompous (like the annoying amateur sleuths in those "cozy mysteries" who feel that they are the only ones who could possible solve the crime).
What prevents me from giving this a 5 star is that Vinnie is supposed to be a Criminal Justice instructor at a local college, so I expect her to be a little smarter about some of the situations she ends up in. But all in all, I've enjoyed this series and look forward to future installments. I hope this author keeps writing.
And it is readable by the entire family, a big plus for me.
So why not 5 stars? A little too little character development, although they are interesting, and the reader feels a friendly rapport with them. A little too little depth to any one story line. Besides that, I'm not quite sure. Just something about it did not measure up to the books to which I have awarded 5 stars; and that alone, in fairness to those authors, is the main reason.
You'll like this book if you are looking for a fun and interesting mystery, packed with the added laughs from a second-generation Italian family, where one member is affiliated in "unsavory" activities associated with that ethnic background, and nearly all the friends of one family member (Vinnie herself) are cops, feds, or state bulls...and she teaches criminal interrogation at the local college.
Now, that alone ought to be enough to "whet your whistle" for the laughs and good reading upon these pages! Definitely worth the reading!
Coming from a large Italian family I enjoy the interaction portrayed in the Esposito books. While her interaction with others sometimes leaves something to be desired, I can see several cousins in her character.
I made the mistake of reading these out of order so I am off to read the start of the series.
The main character taught criminal justice type courses at a local college, and as such you would think she would act on suspicious behaviors and events, but she rarely did so and that was just odd.
For the price, for a quick easy read, these are great, but also very forgettable.
