um well where do i begin with this book? If you want a really light book to read then pick this one up for a round but if you're thinking about any brain activity during the duration then don't even bother. This is just one of those books that you pick up and read and think 'what was that? did anything even happen' and thats where i would promptly answer 'well no'. Nothing happens in this book..all the characters 'the cousins' just sit around at talk about all this junk and by the time they actaully figured out who murdered the dude you just don't even care. Ms. Cousins definatley seems to try to hard to put in the 'southern touch' and it kinda makes the book look ridiculous at times....Overall a light a easy book to read if ya wanna read something

Lindsey Fox is the most colorless mystery heroine I have ever encountered. She is hopelessly overshadowed by talkative cousins, Mam and Bonnie. Lindsey also lacks any convincing emotional depth in her romantic quandary over whether to become involved with Will or Luis Rivera. The authors would do well to beef up Lindsey's character and cut out a good deal of the weak humor and mindless Southern prattle. A little goes a long way, believe me. What Fiddle Dee Death has going for it is an interesting and well-described location. I found Indigo Island appealing and wouldn't mind another visit there if a second mystery novel by Caroline Cousins improves upon the first.

Did you ever go to a movie that was acclaimed by critics only to mumble to yourself, 'Why on earth did I pay to see that?'. You shake your head and wonder where do critics come up with these acclaims. That is precisely how I felt reading this murder mystery novel. It was hard enough to figure out the characters, I still don't really know who 'I said' is! There were so many characters in and out of the story I got dizzy. Needless to say the characters are less than one dimensional. The writing is a novelists nightmare. There are no emotions involved. All you get are Cissy said, Margaret Ann 'said', I said, he said, blah, blah, blah, for about fifty characters. If I see one more said, I'll scream. I couldn't really find a plot other than a murder and I'm not certain who was murdered. I should read it again, but NO THANK YOU! HOW DO REVIEWS AND CRITICS COME UP WITH THEIR REVIEWS? DO THEY READ THE BOOKS?
