Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
I thought this book had a good plot and mystery. I’m glad it’s a series as I’ll be able to connect more with the main characters. I grew to like Hellen as well as the landlady, Peggy and Pete the parrot, and detective Grace.
While I liked the characters, I’d have liked some more character development. The writing style seemed too under-developed for the subject matter and main character’s age. Also, there were some predictable moments in the story.
Overall, shop Till You Drop was a good mystery and a good start to a series however, it left me wishing for more.
