Don't even bother. If you, like myself, have been a fan of Coco and Yum-Yum for many years, you'll find yourself wondering if she switched editors -- or if this book was even edited at all.
She crams in every character who has ever made an appearance in one of her books, with a very weak plot that really only shows up in the last 1/3 of the book, and is never resolved. Please, Ms. Braun, go back to your tried and true formula. Your loyal readers do not expect iinvolved character development. We just want the fluffy, yet delightful formula you've always delivered before.

The books a mystery, the story is not.
Contrary to assumption, this book is not a murder mystery but actually just a story about a town that happens to have a murder happen during the story. There is no resolution nor is there any plot. This book wanders aimlessly and simply ends. The characters in the book are incredibly shallow and flat. They give no sense of reality. You don't feel like you are reading about real people at all. The "suspension of disbelief" that should occur in a good novel is not obtained and you feel like you are reading disjointed sentences mentioning characters.
Hopefully this book is a result of "The Author Who Went Bananas" and is not a glimpse into the decline of the series yet to come.
