Ction heats up so does the search for the iller Can it be as simple as Angelica or the current Chamber s President Bob wanting the competition out of the way Or is it an unknown relative wanting the estate OrI was surprised myself and truly can saythe Dangerous Disguise (Cavanaugh Justice, killer was Not The Killing Type I was given this novel proof as a gift from the author to me as a friendship gift I just had to write this review as I m truly a fan of this series and seem to grow invested in the mysteries as the stories become uick paced intricate and the characters become fully developed I can honestly saythis is the best volume in the series to dateNow when is the next one due out I wasn t crazy about this installment I think part of it was a bit personal I didn t like Tricia s reaction view spoiler to when she found the chubby chasers magazine how she was grossed out Throughout the entire book she acted like it was a complete mystery why a man might be attracted to larger women and that really bothered me I m not skinny myself and I struggle with finding myself attractive at times partly because of the way Inow so many people view me With that said there are still plenty of men who think I m pretty and like me and I really didn t like how she acted With that said I m glad she s starting to loosen up a bit she s been much too uptight I thought it was fairly obvious that the auntie yum yum would be closely involved and was surprised they weren t interested in locating her Glad Angelica won Bob s seat as head of the Chamber hide spoiler Don t read Not worth it I don t understand how so many people give this series such high marks Now I have a sense of humor and I do not get offended easily This book however was one disappointment after the other I ended up skimming pages and skipping ahead to see that I correctly guessed who and why someone was murdered in this novel I am done reading this series The last two books were very disappointing I love the idea of small town cozy mysteries I liked this series a lot when I first started reading it However the last two novels I don t The Bosss Baby Surprise know if there are bad things happening in the author s personal life but the characters have evolved into assholes I tried 7 even after 6 was just rampant with rudeness and negativity As I read books in a series I typically like the characters Not with this novel The main character is obnoxious She is petty and shallow It might make a difference in the story if the author had an ability to use it to charm readers but she fails miserably at that At first I thought the author was changing things around Angelica wasn t such a bitch especially to her sister Tricia was coming to the conclusion she needed to lighten up But as I read and I realized nothing was going to change The mystery in itself was disappointing the the murderer was too obvious The background was even disappointing Chubby Chasers International Really The author wrote that one of the women in the magazines was the size of two zebras Seriously This is what your novels have turned to But even worse than that were Tricia s comments about people who were over weight I started praying someone would murder her if she mentioned her caloric intake one time So is the author overweight and doesn t like herself or is she skinny and afraid of gaining weight Trying to figure out why she would write constantly about Tricia s food intake and fear of eating too much at dinner.
