The Regan Reilly books get a little better each time I don't like the reviews that compare her books to her mother's work criticizing it as not as suspenseful Of course it's not as suspenseful Mary writes suspense novels Carol writes mysteries That's like hating the movie Philadelphia because Tom Hanks wasn't as endearing in that as he was in Forrest Gump Same general genre different subgenre This definitely falls in the cozy mystery category Great for a rainy day or an extra long bus ride while your car is in the shop A feel good mystery with a happy ending I liked it The character Regan gets a little human and likable with every book What a charming story with lots of uirky characters Even the bad guys were inept bumbling idiots so this was a mystery without a grusome mudrer to solve i love this book so much it has very good storyline and a great ending to the book i started reading 930 and had to keep reading till i finished the book this by far the best book that she has written so far i can't wait to read the next book in the series Boring We have a private detective who is hired by this family of hippies who need to find their daughter so they can all attend to the wedding of a 93 year old millionairess actress who happens to be marrying for the 6th time and who's 5th husband used to be their uncle If they attend to this wedding they get 2 million dollars each just for being there because this old lady is kind and giving I guess The lady of course is marrying a younger guy who only wants her for the money And our lovely detective has to find the girl and of course find out who this guy is because she feels something wrong about himThe plot is WAY TOO PREDICTABLE and also non believable The coincidences had me rolling my eyes during the whole book saying Oh but of course that is going to happen So so real rolls eyesAlso way too many characters like for real WAY TOO MANY It was hard to keep up with who is who and just when I thought I had it all on my mind buuum 5 characters Just nope please stopI didn't completely hate it but Carol Higgins Clark dear your mother's books are better In the 6th installment of Carol Higgins Clark's Regan Reilly PI series Jinxed Regan returned in this new cozy mystery to solve another puzzling mystery This time we found her in Los Angeles when Lilac Weldon reuested her to find her daughter Whitney to attend her aunt's wedding If she did she would inherit a boatload of money But Lilac's soon to be uncle in law is a con artist who would do anything to prevent Whitney from showing up in the wedding It was now up to Regan to foil the plans and to stop the wedding from happening Regan Reilly is off on a rollicking romp through California wine country trying to track down a missing actress The crazy cast of characters includes a former movie star from the silent film era her much MUCH younger and suspiciously shady husband to be hippie winery owners and a motorcycle gang The Road’s Scholars Hilarious sometimes almost slapsticky antics keep our attention to the exciting end amid wildfires and buried treasure Waaaay too many characters for me I'm not sure what is going on when you have blow by blow details about where people are walking what they are thinking what they are eating come on Tell the story we can infer and we are smart enough to know how some things work without being told it in such great detail This was another great book in the Regan Reilly series I enjoyed this story with Higgins Clark's humor uirky characters I adore the entire Regan Reilly series They read so uickly I don't think it's taken me a day to read any of them
