    Disappointed

    Until Royal Digs, I was really enjoying D. D. Scott's Cosy Mysteries. They have been fun, yet action packed. Unfortunately, Royal Digs became less about the continuation of her series, and more an opportunity for D. D. Scott to commenton today's Presidential Race. I don't feel that I need to agree with an author's political views to enjoy their stories, in this case, her political views became the story. I do not agree with the author's political ideas, but I applaud her for taking a stand for what she believes in. I just wish she had chosen a different venue to take that stand. I would have liked to finish the story, but D. D. Scott was so obvious with her political parallels that I was unable to move beyond her overt message and just enjoy rhe story. She put me in the posistion of feeling as though to continue reading, would be to show that I agreed with her, and I very definately do not agree.
    The other reason I have for my rating is D. D. Scott's use of the first person for multiple characters. I usually enjoy the first person narative, but trying to keep track of which character was talking was very distracting. It made it difficult to lose myself in the story.
    I have been looking forward to reading this story, and have been excited to know that there were more coming, but I will not be continuing the series. I too feel as though I must stand for what I believe. Since D. D. Scott so obviously drew a line in the sand, I will respond my not crossing that line.

    Should have read the reviews first

    Like others, I was a fan of this series and had read every book. I am highly disappointed D.D. Scott used this book as a political diatribe. I couldn't get beyond page 45 before I became so frustrated I sent the book to the cloud. I regret purchasing Hullabaloo and Holly too as I won't be reading it either. D.D. Scott has just lost a reader. Authors need to remember that although they are entitled to their opinions, when reading fiction we readers are looking for an escape from the monotny of day to day life. If you want to espouse your political points of view write a narrative on your point(s) of view. Keep it out of your fiction series.
