I sort of liked it, the third I've read in this series, but not as much as the previous ones, which I really liked. I found the plot rather lame with the outcome reason for the murders even sillier. The secondary characters were melancholy, pouty, weak and not very interesting. The interplay between Jimmy and Willow and Sandy was also darkly moody and dysfunctional in this story, definitely not a "team working together oriented group". I would have enjoyed the story a lot more if they communicated with each other in a respectful way. I did like the way Ms Cleeves incorporated the geography of the setting - land and sea and weather - into the story, she did a good job of that in the previous books too.
