Predictable but fun
I found this book to be a nice break from the more deep and involved mystery novels out there. Like many of the other reviewers I too had figured out the actual murderer half way through reading. Although it was predictable and I felt that it lacked some detail, Nursery Crimes did make for some easy and enjoyable reading. I will read the next book in the series, however if it does not raise the bar slightly from it's very juvinile level I will have to abandon the series and return to more adult type reading.Was this review helpful?

Possibly the Worst Book I Have Ever Read
This is a very poor mystery. The characters are stereotypical (do we need yet ANOTHER wacky former lawyer sticking her nose unattractively into other people's business?) and uniformly unlikable; even the protagonist's 2 year old daughter is revolting. The solution to the 'mystery' is telegraphed very early on; this, coupled with the fact that the heroine's antics also pall very early, made the book excruciating to work through. Frankly, I think this author should refund my money with interest for pain and suffering!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
