This review is a DNF review. I read the book until my face started doing this (a bit over halfway).
I’ve never been to Wisconsin, don’t’cha know. I did grow up in a sleepy podunk town where nothing ever happened. So I do have some life experience with that. I like quirky characters. Being a quirky person myself makes me appreciate when a book character is just plain weird. But Kippy was a bit too outlandish, even for me. I quite liked her dad and the fact that she called him by his name. I liked all of his little names for her.
I just had a huge problem believing that someone as unworldly as Kippy could be solving murders. The suspense was laughable at times. It was like there was a monkey holding up cue cards to signal when there should be darkness.
The fact that Kippy’s only friend secretly hated her was a horrible second storyline.
