The author, Kathleen Cosgrove, created a main character that goes to show that while getting older, we don't necessarily lose our sense of adventure and humor. Maggie is a quirky character that seems to attract
trouble like a magnet and is constantly finding herself stumbling into situations that will cause you to wonder how she manages to survive, while at the same time laughing at her antics.
I deducted one star for the formatting issues that caused me to have to click 4 to 8 blank pages to reach the next chapter. When Maggie is in the middle of one of her misadventures, who wants to turn that many blank pages. It wasn't enough to cause me to quit reading, just a major distraction as I couldn't wait to keep reading.
Maggie Finn is 50-something, visiting Florida to move her parents into a retirement village. Maggie goes to visit their new retirement village home while a body is discovered in the lake. With that fragile of a connection, we have our tale. Maggie of course feels compelled to investigate, and of course, all the bad guys try to do her harm, because, of course, she must know something. In one such instance, she is drugged with a potent designer drug which causes her to hallucinate, and we are treated to scene after scene of Maggie's ridiculous and stupid psychedelic ramblings. And of course, the police detective on the case is so enamored with Maggie that he, of course, asks her out. Really? What kind of idiot would date such a flake?
If the author stuck to one outlandish plot, then perhaps the book would have been entertaining. However, she decided to throw every silly, offbeat idea she could think of (alligators, deejays, mafia, designer drugs, Zen, politics, drag queens, etc.) into the mix and it just becomes a muddled mess. Not worth your time and money.
I am eager for book two!!!!
