So boring it was a struggle to finish
Unfortunately, the Deborah Knott series appears to have completely run out of steam. This book is almost totally lacking in the elements that have made most of the other books in the series so charming---i.e., Deborah's new husband (Dwight) & stepson (Cal) & her fascinating clan of brothers, their wives & her "Daddy." Dwight only makes cameo appearance in the very beginning & at the end. During the remainder of the book, Deborah is at a conference in another city with a huge cast of superfluous characters. Since the storyline is very thin, the author resorts to padding it by describing everyone's appearance & clothing & the furnishings of every room in exhaustive detail. Also, the book is printed in a large type font with wide margins--another sure sign that there is not much of a story there. This might have been a good short story, but it's not worth the price of a full-length book & I won't rush out to buy the next one.
