I've meant to read this book for AGES. I just never felt like it was the right time. Until I saw a copy available at DG. Then once I bought it I couldn't get it out of my head. I knew it was going to be my next Cozy Cull. So here we are.
I enjoyed it from the Alcatraz themed party (that made me miss the Alcatraz television series) to the characters. I really appreciated Presley's relationship with her mother. Her mother has Alzheimer's and is at a home, but Presley makes sure to visit regularly and treats her well. I did find parts a little obvious... like something about Presley's new neighbor. And I thought Presley definitely should have at least considered the killer as a suspect. I did.
The series is already 5 long so I've got a little catching up to do, but not too much. The next book is How to Crash a Killer Bash.
