Sounds like an acquired taste lol

It was very disappointing. The previous book I read by the same author was a 5*book for me.
Oh, no. Sounds like Kelly is very much hit and miss, after all!

Let's hope this one was an exception....much like Passenger.
The only other one by her that I have lined up for the near(ish) future is "The Spoilt Kill". Which one was your 5-star experience again -- "Dead Corse"?

I loved Dead Corse. That was the 5* book.

The Spoilt Kill is the one I originally wanted to read this weekend, but have now postponed (to probably next week).
That'll determine then how many Kelly books I'll be getting (besides "The Christmas Egg") … and which ones. Thank you for being such an obliging literary guinea pig …!

You know, stylistically, I liked this book. Kelly could definitely write well. There were even scenes when I was glued to the page. I just have no idea what Kelly was smoking when she came up with the plot, or rather plots, in this one.
Sounds a bit like the ending of "The Christmas Egg" (my sole point of reference, so far) ...

And yet, very, very different to The Christmas Egg.
Hmm. Not sure I want to find out just where the differences are! :)

This one was closer to Dead Corse, but Dead Corse so just much better...and actually had a plot I could follow.

The Christmas Egg was a detective story. Dead Corse wasn't in that the MC was an employee at the crime scene who just happened to be engaged as an amateur sleuth.
