I had a hard time getting into the book and set it aside quite a bit. About 1/3 - 1/2 way in I really felt like I was connecting to the main character, Lulu, and then the book went quickly after that. A wide and varied cast of characters kept me guessing as to the identity of the killer, but it also made it difficult to keep track of who was who. I felt like I needed a cheat sheet to identify all the secondary players. That may be why I had such a hard time getting into the story itself. I loved the fact that Lulu made everyone report their activities to the police, a unique approach for the amateur sleuth. I may read more from this author in the future, but at the moment she's not going to the top of my list.
