All I have left to say is that I enjoyed every minute of this Mistry, from the characters to the the small-town setting, to having another hard case to crack, and I mean that I wasn't expecting who the killer was revealed, but I had fun in solving the mystery.
1) To consider Jill suspect number one because she had a public quarrel with the victim -- a man who quarreled with everyone. Beyond silly.
2) If Jill ate as much as she is described as eating, most of it loaded with sugar, and drank as much beer and wine, she would be roly-poly! It would take more than the occasional run on the beach to burn it off.
3) How does this obnoxious mayor stay in office?
I had a hard time finishing this and maybe it was me. I liked her first in the series. Here's hoping that book number three picks up the pace.
But the author is either trying too hard, or not hard enough. It seems to depend on the page. I haven't seen any typos, but the grammar needs work. She'll write compound sentences and then follow it up with a phrase. One stood out on page 43, where she talks about her morning routine and tiring her dog out with a run and then the next sentence is "Exactly my evil plan." Umm, where's the verb?
She has odd descriptions of the scenery and house that aren't moving the story along and aren't really setting a scene or giving the reader a sense of place. There is a lot of internal dialogue as well. I don't mind that, but again it doesn't feel like she's moving the story forward with it. The pacing was better in the first book.
I hope for the next few she finds a good(or better) editor than she had. The story and the series has a lot of potential. I like the characters and the romance as well as the mysteries and the small town tourist vibe on the coast. But I'd recommend a critique buddy and a friend with a sharp editing eye for the next book.
