I got bored

I love Copperman's Haunted guesthouse series. They're funny, nothing too terrible happens the endings are always happy. They are fun entertainment between heavier and darker reads. So, I had the same expectations for this book.

My expectations were not met.

I didn't like the book's heroine, mystery writer Rachel Goldman. For someone who apparently is a able to make a living writing mystery books, she seems to have very little understanding of how investigations work, or any curiosity about how they work. When confronted with the news that someone is killing off mystery writers, she just wants to go home and work on her current book. It isn't until she becomes a target herself, that she begins to show some interest. Not, "Oh, my God, someone is trying to kill me" interest, instead "I just want to go home - alone" and pretend it's not happening kind of interest. At a minimum you would think that maybe she would think there might be book in it for her.

Cozies aren't meant to be taken all that seriously, I get that. But, they should at least be entertaining and this book wasn't. That said, I'm still looking forward to the next book in the Haunted Guesthouse series.

As for Amanda Ronconi's narration, it's always great, even when the story isn't.

Terrible book.

The main character is totally unrealistic. Her life is in danger.... so she goes to bed. Magical duct tape shows up after the author drills into your head over and over that there "was nothing in the room"

Waste of 9 hours.... i kept waiting for it to get better.... it didnt.

Great narrator tho.
