I'm an avid fan of cozy mysteries; one of the reasons being that I love the character development that progresses with each book. But that character development was truly lacking in this book (#2 in the series). The interactions were flat, and considering the subject matter, I expected so much more. Lee Hollis is the pen name for a brother/sister writing team and unlike the 1st book in the series, which was wonderful, this book felt like the sister of the writing duo was absent as I could not see most women in similar positions being so apathetic towards certain individuals. Where was the anger, or passion, depending on their viewpoint!? Therefore, as there are so many excellent cozy series out there, this likely the last book in this series that I'll spend my time reading.
