    Potato chip book - kinda empty story with Jill bumbling her way thru 'solving' cases as usual. Can't read just one, tho.......... Potato chip book - kinda empty story with Jill bumbling her way thru 'solving' cases as usual. Can't read just one, tho..........

    Well, we got back to CASS in this episode, so some of my disappointment in a couple of recent books was assuaged. Still liking the ingenuity of the mystery solving and the neverending parade of quirky (I'm being polite) neighbors.

    Jill has a few challenges this time Dealing with several cases at once, a sick cat, clown school and more weird events in Candlefield. First is a missing person case, followed by a few surprises. Several big things are happening some at CASS and some at Washbridge. The flower fairies, a zoo and Daze all need help and Jill's feet don't touch the ground. Add to the mix a murder and other discoveries in Washbridge make for a busy non stop story. Of course Winky too.

I can't wait for the next instalment.

    Right from the top, I have to admit that this was something of an odd choice for me. Not the book itself as such, just the fact that I chose to read book #29 in a series before reading any others! The reasoning behind the purchase is lost on me now, but none-the-less, I ploughed on regardless. And to be honest, despite there being a few references and ongoing subplots I struggled with, the book itself was a refreshing summer read.

Not the book itself as such, just the fact that I chose to read book #29 in a series before reading any others! The reasoning behind the purchase is lost on me now, but none-the-less, I ploughed on regardless. And to be honest, despite there being a few references and ongoing subplots I struggled with, the book itself was a refreshing summer read. Jill Maxwell is not only a private investigator earning a good living in rural England, but she is also a witch, something that the majority of her clients know nothing about. Her cases are an interesting mix covering both worlds. She is simultaneously searching for a missing canal boat owner and investigating the mysteriously vanishing water in the fairy reservoirs. It is all in day's work for this particular sleuth. I found the style of writing very easy to read and the gentle humour made it a particular pleasure. In a typical PI style, the story is told in the first person and is very dialogue-driven. Ms Maxwell does not go in for long-winded descriptions or soliloquise. The writing is concise and well-paced. I particularly liked the way the mundane and magic worlds were interwoven. All I need to do now is go back 28 books and see where it all began...

    Improvements over the past few. Because this series had been more than slightly predictable, I was reluctant to continue reading. However, this installment brought an underlying plot element more forward, rekindling my interest. Machinations with Grandma continue, as does the ongoing rivalry of the twins (bored), but the new employee at the creche and developments at both WOW and CASS may hold future interests as .

    Adventures galore This is a pretty fun episode in the life of Jill Maxwell. There is the clown school next door to her office and her decision to hire an office manager. And what do wooly massives and fields of flowers have in common? Then there is her missing person case and her meeting with the new headmaster of CASS. Jill is kept busy and I was kept entertained. A good combination!

    Something appears to be fishy. Once again several stories come together with great results. Jill is still as funny as ever and poor long suffering Jack garners no sympathy whatsoever. The twins fail to out do each other again, but they were a great set up for what is happening in the creche.

    Complications, Murder and what comes next As if a drought, a baby contest, disappearing witches or a new evil CASS headmaster arrives, there are new neighbors, her nephew wanting her to give a talk at his school or Grandma not forgiving her for not winning the tournament, life is full! Other than a custard cream and muffin, life goes on

    Brilliant! I absolutely LOVE this series! For a guy that really didn't like anything "witchy", I've become hopelessly enamored of Jill, Grandma, Aunt Lucy, Mrs V, Winky and the entire cast of characters imagined and wonderfully contrived by author Adele Abbott! I enjoy the multiple plots, the snarky humor and the wild ride of character interaction! A MUST read!!! Brilliant! I absolutely LOVE this series!

    Wow!!! It appears that Jill Maxwell p.i. has out done it again! She saves woolly mammoths, witches married to humans, and the livelihood of the fairy population. I'm not sure if I can wait to see what she does next. Wow!!! It appears that Jill Maxwell p.i. has out done it again!

    Canary yellow This series is so easy to read. I love all the mischief she gets into without even trying. Grandma is a hoot and the twins seem clueless. I look forward to the next in the series!

    Clever, imaginative, funny and quirky! I love the periodic talking to the reader and the clever schemes that Winky devises. The inventiveness of the quirky neighbors. Adele Abbott has a great imagination into what could be possible in alternative worlds.

    It was nice getting back into this world but the main mystery was a little slow.
