The writing is clever yet smooth. Providing a flow which caught my interest from the very beginning. Well developed main characters Val and Kit and a well rounded supporting cast, keep the action centered. It was nice that the portrayal of the 45+ female was not a caricature, as so many are these days.
My only dislike was that the author wanted to individualize her two main characters by having one speak ya instead of you when talking to her counterpart. I found it jarring that a sophisticated woman, well-dressed and well educated person would have such a "??????" yuk speech habit. But I do plan to purchase more Val & Kit Mysteries in the future.
Again, the authors have impressed me with how well they write as a team. This truly reads like it's written by one person - so if the co-author thing gives you pause, don't let it.
Like the other two books, the plot revolves around Val and Kit being thrown into investigating some suspicious deaths. Trouble seems to follow them wherever they go; even a trip to visit Val's mom is Wisconsin isn't exempt from mayhem. Like always, these amateur sleuths piece together what really happened.
I liked how this story introduced us to the flesh and blood characters of Jean, William Stuckey and Emily. All three have been mentioned in previous books or been a voice on the other end of the phone. It was nice for them to play a major role in this book.
I could have used more Tom in this one. He does swoop in towards the end to save the day, but I agree with Kit: he has more than platonic feelings for Val. I hope that during some point in the series this will be further explored. The authors keep setting the stage for this and I'll continue reading in the hopes that the next book will finally have the big payoff.
All in all, this series is a fun read. There's friendship, suspense, mystery, humor and a bit of romance for good measure. I can't wait to read what happens next.
