Kritters Thoughts: The third book in this series and as I said yesterday, I definitely agree that you should start at book one and I won't spoil anything in this review, but I say go back to my review on Monday and start with the series there.
As I also said yesterday, the first few chapters definitely give the reader a little easy synopsis of the high points of the previous book and help get the reader "back" into this story, especially if you have been away from it for a bit.
I like the mystery in this book. I liked it because it didn't involve back stabbing or malicious characters as in the previous - not saying who so as not to spoil! I liked that it just felt like a true mystery and it brought in the interesting ways that Southern folks are and have been for a long time. The previous two felt very Southern and very Charleston, but for some reason this one felt the most Charlestonian!
I would say that this series is building and building and I am liking it. I like that because the author has used multiple books to build it, it is a nice slow burn in terms of development of the characters, but again the mystery is self contained in each book.
Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
