I would have given this book more than three stars if Goldy wasn't so dense in parts of this book. Sometimes she was competent enough to connect the dots. But, then there were many more instances where she couldn't manage to make blatantly obvious assumptions. I don't like figuring out the mystery halfway through a novel. What's the point? I'd much prefer it if the author gave her reader some intellectual credibility, and write her whodunit books with a smarter reader in mind.
