Strawberry Shortcake Murder by Joanne Fluke
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The story could really be decent if the writing had been more in-the-moment. There are far too many moments in which some sort of action/investigating is starting, and the author stops the anticipation half-way through only to conclude it with a "had" section (ie. a section that is playing catch-up, like "it turned out that she'd found nothing of importance", etc.).
As with the first book, I really couldn't stand the obsession with people's weight. It really sours the book--and my opinion of the protagonist--when all she can do is internally remark on people's weight, how their clothes fit, and their eating habits.
