Oh no, unpopular review. Sorry to be the negative nancy here, I think this book just wasn’t for me. I really need a exciting and edge of my seat book after this one.
You will like this if you want:
• A very light read
• Some humour
• Fun characters with a side of mystery
What I didn’t like:
• Overall it was boring, snail pace and not much actually happened in between the few major events. In fact 90% of the novel felt like meandering fillers.
• I was never immersed, had zero interest in the case which was hard to follow and had to re-read passages because I lost focus.
• There were too many characters and I lost track. This alternated between first person point view of Joyce and in third person point of view with airtime for the 4 members of the Thursday Murder Club, the 2 detectives, suspects and other side characters. There wasn’t any deep dive into any of them so I didn’t connect with anyone.
