I'm about the biggest Annie and Max fan there is, and I've often wished Broward's Rock was a real place that I could visit (I think I could probably find anyplace I wanted, I have it so clear in my mind) but this book was a disappointment to me. Of course, anything by Ms. Hart beats a Nancy Pickard or Susan Conant anyday, but the writing, and the title(!) are weak. I know Carolyn can do better, and I still have high hopes for White Elephant Dead (another lame title, let's hope that's not indiciative of the contents.) When I first started reading the Death on Demand books, I hoped Carolyn would write them forever, but I hope now that if the next one is as weak as this one that she lets the series die a graceful death. Henny was very disappointing in this book. I did not like the direction her character took. I suspect that Carolyn likes her Henrie O. books better, and is spending more time on them than the Death on Demands. I for one, don't care for Henrie O., and would be happy to see that character retire for good. She's conceited and annoying. I really hope Annie and Max get the attention they deserve in the future. I'd love to read about them for another couple of decades if the quality of writing can remain in the leagues of the first 9 books, especially A Little Class on Murder, the Christie Caper and Mint Julep Murder.
