Smart, but Dead

Smart, But Dead - Nancy G. West

I loved the first two books in this series so I was really excited to read this one. After all the brilliant humor in the first two books the absolute nonexistence of humor in this book was such a letdown. In fact I couldn't find anything that I loved from the first two books in this book. 


I could not stand Aggie in this book. Usually her humor really shines but as I said before there was no humor in this. This time around Aggie seemed absolutely desperate and pathetic when it came to Sam and completely inept and over her head when it came to her investigation. Some of the comments Aggie made about Sam and her love for him were just downright weird and creepy. I am all for a relationship between the two of them and have been from the start but can't see how Aggie thought her behavior would make Sam love her.


Aggie spent the whole book bumbling about "investigating" a murder. There were some consequences to her investigation which I wholeheartedly felt she deserved. Her stubbornness at trying to solve what happened (so that Sam would love her) was just unbearable at times. If it weren't for the fact that I felt like I had to write a review for this, I probably would have given up on this halfway through. Not even the action towards the end could really even save this for me.


I am not sure whether there will be more books in this series but I do know that if there are I won't be reading them. I really loved this series but this book was such a one-eighty from the other two that I just can't take anymore chances on this.


(I received an egalley of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.)
