Hat begins on her own doorstep It seems that Landen her husband actually drowned. Maybe only a 35 star but it was another fun trip into such a strange world filled with literary references slippery characters murder mayhem There s plenty of wry humor puns ridiculous situations to make sure things don t get too serious I d call it a cozy mystery except that belies just how fantastic the world is there is no way the reader can figure out what is going to happen I sometimes wonder if the author knows He writes the way Mrs Haversham Yes the lady from Great Expectations drives with complete abandon sheer joy It s a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola Thursday Oh oh Lola Thursday OK I ll uit singing now but if this series had a theme song that wouldn t be a bad oneIt was a bit uneven but I put that down to the high points striking me as so funny There s a great scene at a book sale for instance I didn t uit chuckling for several minutes Reminded me of the time I stood in line at 5am in 20 degree darkness to get Ghost Buster backpacks for the boys for Xmas That was 30 years ago so I can laugh about it now The savagery of mostly mothers on the prowl was shocking a lot of fun to watch once I got the backpacks of course Very well narrated which added to the atmosphere I m definitely up for another at some point
