Irish Stewed: An Ethnic Eats Mystery - Kylie Logan

Kylie Logan's books have always been hot/cold for me but my first impression of this one is 98% negative (Sophie being the only reason I'm hanging on) The main character, Laurel, is a self-absorbed narcissistic snob who turns her nose up at everything and even takes great pains to point out to strangers that she's not actually related to the sister of the woman who graciously took her in as a foster child.  I can't understand why anyone would write such an unlikable and annoying main character.  I'm giving it about another 10% and if it doesn't improve, I'm done with a 0 star rating.  Ugh!
