So, at some point, your publisher or editor came back to you and said, "there are so many things in here that you should make this two books." Sweetie, they were wrong. Don't get me wrong. I love your characters, your plot twists, your scenes... I have followed you through 6 books so far. And this book is wonderful until the last page. You keep me interested and turning pages. There is so much going on and I care. The problem is... every story should have a beginning, middle and end (even if they aren't in the right order). A cozy makes you fall in love or hate with colorful characters, builds them to a climax and then uses every gun that has been hanging on the wall. You don't do that. You drop 20 kittens out the high-rise window. You describe their cute descent. You describe the oncoming road. There's hope. A truck with mattresses is rounding the corner. And the moment before they hit the ground or are saved, you just stop. If I hadn't already bought #6, I would have left the series. And so I don't have to slam book #6, You left such a mess with this ending that half the next book is cleaning up. All pacing and anticipation are gone. It's like trying to restart a romantic encounter after being interrupted by the baby crying. You may eventually get there again, but you are starting over. Advise to the reader? Sadly, skip this one and read book #6. Advice to author? Books should have a beginning, middle and ending.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
