My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I wanted to like this more: it was a straight up mystery novel, it’s based in Missouri (yay, Show Me State!!!), the cover is cool. Sadly, it didn’t take it all the way for me. It was dry and felt like it over-explained a couple of technical things , but I powered through because the murder mystery was good. The ‘romance’ and mama drama was random, and thank goodness the receptionist was only in a few scenes because she was a waste of space and good air.
