Great fun- and I had no issues with the kindle version
on 21 May 2011
The books in this series are really good fun. They are light hearted fluffy chick lit/ murder mystery novels that are a joy to read. The main character, Maddie, and her motley crew of sidekicks (including her best friend, her Mum, her Mum's 5 times divorcee friend and 'faux Dad's' gay receptionist) all act as amateur sleuths to crack the case each time Maddie unwittingly gets involved in a murder in each book. The characters aren't necessarily the best detectives in the world (in fact I identified the killer before the characters did in at least 3 of the books) but that's all part of the fun and there's loads of laugh out loud moments throughout the series. This boxset is great value and worth every penny because you're bound to get hooked and want to munch through the books one after another immediately. I can't comment on previous comments that the books are similar to the Stephanie Plum series as I haven't read it but I can confirm that I read the kindle version and had no issues with it at all- there were no formatting issues or spelling issues so these faults must have been corrected after a previous reviewer pointed them out. Perfect reading for the beach! Highly recommended.
