I like Abby, her boyfriend Jeff, and her sister Kate. I "know" them from previous books, and the fact Kate and Jeff were both acting out of character was part of what made this book interesting.

We also had a variety of entertaining secondary characters that made me laugh or wince while moving the plot along. I cared about the mystery in this book, and about the process of finding the answers. Strangely, the details of who-dun-it didn't really worry me that much. I did have some quibbles with the book-- although I enjoyed seeing Kate and Jeff outside their usual selves, I think Kate was a little too far out of character.
I found some of the plot developments predictable.

But overall, I enjoyed the book. The big question for me with book 4 of any series is whether it makes sense to start here, or should a new reader start at the beginning. This book stands on its own plot-wise, but you'll miss out on some interesting character development. If you think there is a chance you'll want to read all of the books, I'd suggest starting at book 1. I still enjoyed both. Read them for the character development if they sound interesting, skip them if they don't. Dec 06, Kristen rated it liked it Shelves: This is the 4th book in the Abby Rose series.

This is a story full of strong characters, emotional circumstances, and great action. Sweeney does her homework and writes in a clear, clean way. There are no problems with grammar, spelling, consistency, etc. Great characters, tight plot, not a misstep anywhere! I tend to be rather citical, so my praise is hard - earned.

There are quite a few twists and turns in this mystery. It has the look of a cozy on the cover, but it's not cozy nor an amateur sleuth since Abby is a licensed private investigator. It's grim, but has its sassy moments since Abby doesn't take any guff from anyone. I liked this quite a bit and look forward to listening to more of this series.

The identity of the bad guy and his motives were so completely obvious that I couldn't believe that Abby hadn't figured it out.
