This is a humorous murder mystery and it just doesn t quite make it for me I have a little trouble with humorous books to begin with, but this one is almost slapstick at times and then jumps to supposedly serious drama I found it hard to enjoy any of it.The characters are flat, one sided, and not realistic I know the author was going for funny characters, but I expect them to be real first, funny second.There was some potential in the plot line was Sloane s mother murdered why who is trying to h [...]
