I felt that this one was strong. Although I was missing some favorite regulars, there were many regulars returning, and some new interesting `characters¿. I was afraid the dynamic could change now that Lee and Joe were married, but it seemed that the author did a good job with so many other characters of making it not all about the two of them. Interested to see if it can maintain the integrity and carry on with the tone through out the series. Nice cozy mystery, with lots of action.

This series has gone downhill. Too bad, really, because it had a lot of promise. This particular entry hits the reader over the head constantly with the fact that it's hot in Warner Pier. And there doesn't seem to be any reason for the long descriptions of the weather other than to take up room on the page. We are supposed to believe that Lee has to suffer with the heat and may lose her business because her central air goes out and they only have casement windows so they can't put in window units. Well, you know what? We don't have central air and we don't have window units. For YEARS they've been making rolling AC units you just take from room to room with you. Is everyone in Warner Pier too backward to know about such a thing? What kind of business owner doesn't know exactly where to lay her hands on something so vital to her business?Plus, Lee's verbal tick is really, really annoying.

Lee and Joe are starting off their married life with a house full of guests. But that's nothing compared to a string of burglaries and the man showing up claiming to be Joe's long dead father. I missed many of the series regulars, and the plot wandered around a big before it really took off. Fans of the series will enjoy it.
