    Good read

    This book was ok. It had twists and turns with intresting characters. I prefer Deb Baker's "Gertie" series over the doll series but thats just personal preference. This story was well written and held my attention the whole time.

    There are four books so far in this series

    Thete are four books in the doll club series. I have enjoyed all of them. There are a few editing problems in each book. Nothing major, just a bit irritating. I love the books being set in Arizona. It is one of my favorite places and the main reason I bought this the first book in this series. I also like the books because there is a dab of romance without sex. So rare these days. There is no cursing and no blood, gore, guts or other horrifing details accompany the murders. There is not any cursing, preaching, rape, pyschological abuse or abuse of children. There is a kooky aunt, a down to earth mother, crazy friends, hunky police officer boyfriend, a whacked out dolls club and a heroine who is not perfect, but always does her best to get along in a world which seems to constantly throw corpses at her feet. There is dogs and cats and wonderful descriptions of Camelback mountain, which I have climbed. I have two other books by this author and enjoyed them also. The books are all over 500 pages long and cost about $4.00 each. Well worth the reader's time and money. Recommended for readers ages 15 and up, but not juvenile in any way. These mysteries contain humor and are more for women then men. A really enjoyable read.

    A good cozy

    Most of the characters were well developed and charming: evev those lifestyles that may not be congruent with our own. Plot somewhat convoluted albeit contrived. Had read Gertie Johnson story, and it was fun to see her included. It was easy to ascertain the villain after only a few pages, but that 's OK It's still a cute way to spend a rainy day with a cup of tea

    Mystery Lite, Okay but not great

    This is the first book in the series. It was a pleasant, light read, with interesting characters. But I never felt fully engrossed in the story. There was too much attention to details about things unrelated to the mystery and not enough development of the mystery itself. The details about collectible dolls wasn't at all informative, mostly just names of dolls that were meaningless to me. I found the mystery itself to be on the lite side. The conclusion seemed rushed and lacked suspense or tension, and it left me feeling generally blase about the whole thing. I doubt I'll read subseqent books in the series.

    Dogs Dolls Details

    Too much of this book was about dogs,dolls and uneeded details. The actual mystery was pretty good, but could have been told in a much shorter book.

    Why is do.much of it underlined?

    I liked the story and characters, but sentence after sentence was underlined, making it harder to read. Someone needs to fix that!

    This is a great book

    I was pleasantly surprised that this was such a good book. I read the reviews and put it behind some others - what a mistake. I love her humor and characters! It was a great read.

    Good

    Definitely a good read. I, like other reviewers, like the author's Gertie mystery series better, but I will read more of this series. Good charactors with a storyline that keeps the reader guessing.
