This is the 3rd in the Wicked Witches of the Midwest series, and although overall it was enjoyable, there were a few things that detracted from the story. The plot, an abandoned yacht, the mysterious re-appearance of Thistle's father and Brian's suspicious behavior, was well paced and enjoyable but I figured most of it well before the middle of the book.
While the banter between the 3 cousins, Bay, Clove and Thistle, was cute in the first 2 books, it's wearing a bit thin. They're all in their mid-20s but they act like 12 year olds at times. It's not endearing. Also, I don't see why they lie about every little thing. There's no reason for it and it's annoying. Example: instead of saying they were up in the middle of the night to check out something in the register and why, they make up bad excuses and eventually have to fess up anyway. Why bother lying in the first place? Ugh.
Overall, a fun read but starting to fray in some places.
