    1. Well, it's OK. Not horrible but not a riveting mystery. Someone said they didn't understand the name but it is glaringly obvious based on the fact that everyone has one in their closet. Even the main character. The real challenge is figuring out which closet has the most interesting skeleton. There is a mystery here. Who killed Jason McKendrick. However, after reflection, this book is basically a philosophical rant by the main character. No one fits into the molds she'd constructed for them. Thi [...]


    2. Best yetGreat plot twists with action galore!Keeps you guessing from page to page and anxious to find out what happens in the next episode!


    3. Let downAfter enjoying other books by Julie Smith, I was very disappointed. About 1/3 of the way thru the book went south.


    4. So here's the thing. I spawned rather earlier than predicted which meant three unanticipated (completely unprepared for) weeks with my perfect baby, and who can complain about that? It did, however, throw off my book reading and reviewing. It also turns out I was kind of sick those last couple weeks so some things are a little fuzzy around the edges. Between all of that, I really have no memory of this book. I do remember I didn't want to read it again and I thought it ended abruptly. I don't re [...]


    5. Too darkI really enjoyed the first two books. They were funny and entertaining. The third book was darker and it was like a new set of characters. I didn't care much for it. Book four had done a complete turnaround, and was just another typical mystery, and so implausible and far fetched and stupid it was sad. As bad as 4 was, 5 was worse. I have no clue who the character is supposed to be, but I would have no interest in reading any more of them. It is sad when you see A series go from great to [...]


    6. Ehh not the bestToo much hatred based on incorrect and inaccurate information about Christianity. Stupid. Plot was so-so but the women's lib to the point of bashing Christianity was so disappointing. No reason to blame Christianity for your women's lib issues. Dumb. Don't waste your time


    7. SuspensefulI didn't see that coming until the end story, but the motive had me almost in tearsep up the good work, Ms. Smith


    8. Great cozy with complex charactersJulie Smith seems to be an undiscovered gem of a writer. Her books are fun and breezy with real mysteries to solve, yet she has deep character development. Apparently some find this book a bit dark, but I find it refreshing to see a character undergo some self assessment, recognize her faults and mature.


    9. I really enjoyed this one! Julie Smith keeps me reading, what's next, hard to put down. The last of the Rebecca Schwartz Series, dang, what will I read next?After this Series I feel like I know Rebecca.I can almost see a Rebecca, Talba and Skip adventure!Paul McDonald Series here I come!


    10. The book was really hard to follow. It didn't seem organized or flowed well. The story took long to develop and towards the end when things started to pick up it seemed rushed. Just not my type of book.


    11. I got confused in a few places trying to figure out where the plot was trying to go. Sometimes the subplots took over and keeping track of which characters fit where became an issue. it did come together in a satisfying end.


    12. I have to be honest, this book started off very slowly. I struggled getting into it for the first half, and for that I have only rated it 2 stars. If you do read it, keep pushing through as the second half is a page turner.



    13. I expected more from this mystery. It didn't really seem like a mystery to me anyway. I hope that Smith's stories are better than this.


    14. I enjoyed this murder mystery set in San Francisco. Nothing too far out except, perhaps, psychics, drunks, mobsters, etc. I little bit of everything.









    15. Downloaded as a Kindle freebie and while I finished it, I found the writing weak in places. Also, the main character is not that like able.
