At first I liked this series, but as I got into it, it became tiresome.
Addicts & enablers are not of reading interest to me, especially not when it comes to mysteries.
Honestly who cares if Caroltta's brother Weasel....oops Wesley gets hurt by his loan shark or goes to jail for failing a drug test while on probation. It's what happens when you're a Screw-off and it's no less than he deserves....
Carlotta herself is a Twit. The only job she can get is working in some shi-shi department store as a sales clerk. Also, to make herself more of a weak little enabler, she is living with her ex-fiancee (but screwing the "Hottie" cop on the side) because unbeknown to her, her insane ex-best friend (who tried to kill her), was living in her house alongside her in the closed off room that was once her parents.
This is so very unbelieveable (except for the dysfunctional enabler persona), that I've stopped reading the series. Happy to say, I only ever borowed them from the library and not wasted my money on purchasing them.
Thinking aloud: If they are such good books, why is it they are not published in hardcover?
