This is the 4th book in the Wicked Witches of the Midwest series, and overall the best book in the series, but still not without a few things that detracted from the story.
The plot in this one was riveting; Bay sees the ghost of a little girl who wants to find her mother. The last thing the little girl ghost can remember is being on a boat with other kids, and then going to sleep.While investigating, Bay learns of a terrifying new crime and races to solve it before there are more deaths. Meanwhile, she has her hands full while overseeing the building of a new greenhouse for Aunt Tillie, dodging the consultant hired to expand The Whistler, and learning how to trust her relationship with hunky FBI agent Landon.
Aunt Tillie had a lot of endearing moments, it was nice to see the relationship growing between her and Bay into one a bit more supportive. although still testy. The romance was a nice touch, too. That'll be cute if it goes forward.
A great read, and hard to put down. But still, getting tired of the inane childish behavior, especially Thistle, who needs a boot up her ass. Nice that they're starting to be called out on it, though. Maybe this means they'll grow up a bit? Here's hoping.
Also, not sure what the point of Edith's rant was. It didn't add to the story and it really annoyed me. A little too heavy handed, as was all the talk about sex. I'm sure there's a better way of writing than to have one character exclaim about all the orgasms that Landon gives Bay. Really? Goes back to the childish, inane behavior I pointed out earlier. If it's supposed to be funny, it went over my head.
So, overall, 3.5 stars but would've easily been 5 stars if not for the childish BS.
