Its rare that I can't finish a book but I found this just too boring. The writing style just didn't catch my interest and I felt like I'd been reading for ages and still nothing had happened. Too much time spent on telling me what they ate. I might go back to it and try again some time as I think I have read one by the same author before and found it OK - so it just might have been the wrong time for me raather than the books fault!

If reduced to about a tenth of its length, this would be a good mystery short story. but the two ageing detectives act like lovestruck teenagers on their first date, and that, together with their constant focus on food and, to a lesser extent, dieting and exercise (or lack of it) makes for pages and pages of prose that has nothing to do with the central plot (such as it is). What is funny for the first few pages soon palls. I read it to the end to see whether it would get any better, but it didn't. I know this series has its fans, but it's not for me, I'm afraid.

I generally try to be positive in my reviews but this book does present quite a challenge for me in that regard. Whilst I didn't hate it enough to give up on it, I did feel my brain cells dying at times. The premise of two semi-retired homicide detectives living lives which do not appear to have progressed beyond their early teenage years gets a little wearing. There is a great deal too much about the food they like to eat - constantly - despite the fact that they are supposed to be losing weight and getting fit. That attempt at fitness being an excuse to play on a Wii every day. The endless talk and descriptions of Cy's relationship with his girlfriend are also too much, the nauseating repetition of the kissing and snuggling would put the average 16 year old to shame - these are middle aged men constantly fantasising about when they will next kiss their lady friends, not to mention the carry on in the back seat of the car, whether on a journey or on the back row of the drive-in! Whilst I have no problem with middle aged couples finding love and romance, I can't think of many who would behave like this. The men are constantly bantering in the same style as teenaged boys, throwing lighthearted insults because they know each other so well that they can be sure that no offence will be taken. Enough Please!! As the only other reviewer so far has said, there is only so much "quirky humour" a person can take.

The author takes three chapters to describe all the stalls at a craft fair, we are treated to the details of what is on offer at every single stall - far too much information. Information about what the detectives know or think they know is repeated time and again.

Thoroughly enjoyable. This was the first of Steve's books I read, and it made me want to read more of them. Love the interaction between the two detectives, and the humour. Highly recommended!

This was a relaxing read, the plot less important than the interaction between the characters. I enjoyed the struggles of the men to stick to their diet and exercise plans.

Sorry, but the quirky humour just got too much in the end and I couldn't even finish it. Some readers might love it but it's not for me.

Book was ok, wouldn't say it was in the top 50 of best books I've read, but was enjoyable and easy reading.
