Just because I had the second one, I decided to read it too. I couldn't get past the first couple of pages. She's supposed to be a "Confidential Informant" for the police, but goes busting into the police station causing a scene so she can talk to her cop. Where's the "confidential" in that?
Truly, did not like the first book and couldn't stomach the second one.
Maggie is somewhat more of a doormat than I prefer, but that's pretty typical of cozies. Her worship of her ex-SEAL husband is over the top- I do not believe he is omni-competent, SEAL training or no. Pretty much all the characters were more sketches than individuals, but generally handled well.
Also, I have never, ever heard of a real-life woman as dedicated to cleaning as Maggie is!
It's set in MA, but lacks local color- it could be set anywhere just as easily.
Still, I did enjoy it! The writing was generally lively, although I do wish more authors used "smirking" less, or at least more appropriately; if it's not a cat and it smirks, that's got a nasty edge.
The plot was twisty, but awkwardly so. There was not enough nuance or foreshadowing to justify the final resolutions.
Mildly recommended for cozy mystery fans.
This was a well written book. I loved all of the characters in the book & Ms. Hart makes them all believable. She also had me guessing all the way to the very end about who the murderer was & boy was I surprised!
This is a great book! I read it in two days in between anything I could not reschedule! Quirky characters, mysteries, unsolved (zero gore effect) murders, a housewife that can talk the talk and she is written perfectly, and more importantly, she is written with truth. If anyone has ever been married, lived with someone, have children or not, you will latch onto her with a death grip! She is full to the brim with southern appeal.
Technical things: dialog to description ratio was the most spot on. It was dreamy. There were no grammar or spelling errors. There was about ZERO filler. It's well rounded and can be read as a single but you will want the rest of the series like me.
May Laundry Hag live on for many more tales of friends, family and foes (in-laws and bad guys)!
Again....Sidenote: I ended up getting the audio book because I needed L. H. in my car and it brought the characters to life in so many more ways. I'll get the rest and read long! Kudos!
