  1. As far as the mystery goes, this book is a lot of fun. There are hidden clues, some red herrings, and it’s fun to unravel the details. I also liked the main character…but this is where it gets hairy. Normally I wouldn’t have a problem giving this book four or five stars because I enjoyed the mystery so much, but this main character kept putting herself down and saying what a loser she was, and that was sad, because she was an interesting character who owned her own business and had a lot of fr

    I enjoyed this book, it was a funny read. The main characters are interesting, the dog is silly, and the main character is very relatable – (other than her constantly adding cream to her soda, which I never heard of and sounds kind of gross to me 😉 ) she suffers the usual pains we all do as adults.
    Some of the secondary characters aren’t flushed out very much considering the book is longer than I expected it would be, but it was better than
