A very cleanly constructed story, i thought. I felt the author wasn't just hurrying to get something out there. Though I may have guessed the mystery a little sooner than I'd have liked, it was fun hanging out with the gals, putting the pieces together. I guess I would have to say that "Catnip" (love that nickname) was probably my favorite character. She seemed to me the most well defined, and I liked the way she was always surprising us. I do hope, though, in the books to come (of which I hope there will be many), that the presumed "love interest to be" will loosen up and show us a little more character so that he may be deemed worthy of our Julia.
I also have to mention how sincerely touched I was by the genisis of the name the girls gave themselves, "The Old Maids Club." I felt this book had more heart in it than many mysteries I've read of late. It had me hooked and was very satisfying. Thanks!
Nosy busybody? check.
Sounds familiar? I've read a variation on this theme so many times, I sometimes wonder why I bother.
I should have read the reviews more carefully - when a reviewer describes a mystery novel as "cozy". I usually stay as far away from it as I can. My mistake. The synopsis was better than the book.
The protagonist let herself be bullied by the nosy busybody - to the point that said busybody even had a key to her apartment. Really?
Julia is not a strong protagonist. Her interaction with Sybil: she just lets herself be bullied by the nosy busybody.
Frankly, The only character I kinda liked had a very minor role in this hole story - The talking parrot. Some comic relief in an otherwise boring story.
And what really ticks me off is the role the author assigned to a Roman Catholic priest. There have been enough scandals already. Real ones.
The author must have a strong aversion against anything Catholic - at least that's how I read it.
Even if there's a sequel to this book, I won't bother with it.
