Laura Levine seemed like she was trying too hard, almost like she was trying to copy Joanne Fluke's style, though set in Los Angeles (in fact I thought at one point it might be Joanne under a pen name). And the L.A. setting felt very unnatural, forced-I'm from Southern California and it didn't "feel" like that author was really from there, and it turns out she's not, she's from New York. The second author though, Leslie Meier, has a very natural flow. I'm not quite finished with the final story but I'm finding her to be very easy to read, very enjoyable. She I would read again, but not the other one.

This book should be removed from shelf, Fluke was as always, other two writers poor to mediocre.

The half star rating is probably unfair. It was so saccharine sweet with adorable toddler and adoring grandmother that I could not get past page 5.
