I'm disappointed that I wasted my money. I thought I was going to read a new Gretchen story. Instead I discover that this is "Ding, Dong, Dead" renamed.I did like the story but I didn't need to buy it twice. So frustrating.
It's with a little sadness that I read this Gretchen Birch book - because it is the last in the series. I so enjoyed the characters. For those that aren't sure they'd like the doll theme - this book is more about an old house and a ghost, and a murdered lady found in a nearby cemetery. It has less doll references than the other three books. (Although in my opinion, you really don't have to be a doll collector to enjoy these mysteries - I'm not). I love the characters - they stick with you. Gretchen is independent and stubborn. Her Aunt Nina is hilarious at times, yet they all known when to be serious and get down to business. And who can forget the lovable purse dogs! This was an enjoyable read and I highly recommend!
One of the reasons I enjoy reading Deb Baker's books is because of her interesting characters. A detective who has a phobia about dolls, an aunt who trains purse dogs and is a psychic , and a woman who seems to attract danger all add to the storyline. The story moves along well and gives a good description of the area and buildings without being boring.
This is a very good series, I'm glad I read all of the books in the series. If she writes more I'll get them too
Great cast of characters--kooky, fun, sensible, neurotic & practical--the total package. Love the developing characters and the intriguing doll connected plots.
