The plot and characters are typical of the author; it's the development and treatment that are lacking. It shows little respect for her readers, most of whom undoubtedly have read the entire series and buy the newest book believing it will be of similar quality to the others. Plus, she piggybacks on her mother's publishing date, which probably guarantees still more readers.
The title of the book, "Gypped," is an accurate description of how this reader felt.
Gypped was incredibly lame. First of all Regan has been 31 for at least a decade. Jack is always loving arm candy and has been conveniently disposed of "in a conference" in at least four novels. I suppose its harder to have disagreements (or sex) if you are never in the same city. Not that I expect these to turn in to Fifty Shades of Regan Reilly, but Jack-and-Regan-the-couple are just BORING.
This book had zero plot twists and the even the predictable coincidences were so transparent, I assume they were put in as filler to make the book appear more than twelve pages. The bad guys are identified so quickly I wouldn't have been suprised to see yellow highlighter over their names. I read the Kindle version and kept waiting for the story to evolve - with the Kindle, you can't really tell how far you are into a book. However, it was painfully simple to recognize the end was near (all the characters converge) and I kept thinking, "no ...there is going to be another character, or an alien invasion or SOMETHING."
Alas, no such luck. The good guys all wipe a tiny bead of persperation off their brows and thank Regan for saving the world and Regan and Jack ride off into the sunset to not have sex. Or argue, or drive into the San Andreas Fault where they might have to have an interesting conversation while trying to figure out how they are going to get out.
The Kindle version is $13 plus change...buy chocolate instead.
This was the first Carol Higgins Clark book I've read and I probably won't read another. I'm used to reading actual mysteries with actual plot twists, ex. James Patterson, Harlan Coben, even the other 2 Higgins Clark women.
The only reason I finished it was to see how the vitamins plot fit into the story (spoiler: it didn't really, so she forced something).
The "mystery" man following Regan? Not for a minute did I think it was anyone else but the guy from the garage. I'll admit I was surprised at who it was, but otherwise the characters in this one are so dumb.
Zelda... you're dumb.
Regan... you're probably dumber.
Norman was kind of interesting, but it would have been more interesting if he wasn't such a "good guy"
Maggie/old lady story line was dumb.
Also the ending happened so fast and perfectly- was there something wrong with the tea or not? How did Zelda get sick in the first place?
Anyway, I'm glad other people disliked this book as much as I did.
