This is perhaps the weakest entry in the series. I usually don't even try to solve the mysteries as I am reading, but I had this one figured out within pages of them discovering the skeleton. I love the series, so I am giving the book three stars...but if this was the first book I read of Monica Ferris', I doubt I would bother to read any others.
Too much of Jill's children (cute as they are supposed to be, their presence really did nothing for the story) and Betsy's man troubles, and not enough of Crewel World, Godwin, or The Monday Bunch.
The book felt rushed and incomplete to me.
