DEATH IN ADVERTISING By Laura Bradford

A new author for me and I found a chick – lit book with a tinge of mystery. I am not a fan of the first person format. At times I almost didn’t finish. The addition of the African gray parrots is a nice addition and very well done. I felt Tobi Tobias was self-center and not very likable. The quirky characters did not work for me. There were very few clues given for the mystery making the end hard to understand. Tobi has struck out on her own as an advertising executive. She is almost broke and making ends meet by working weekends at a pet shop. She has a chance to write a slogan for Zander Closet Company. The slogan is successful and it gets a lot of publicity.

    Hmm. Maybe the series will get better with experience.

    There are a few times when my review deviates from what most people are saying. I try not to worry about it. Everyone comes to a book with different tastes and experiences. Your opinion (and mine) are as valid as anyone’s. Usually if I don’t like a book I won’t read any more in that series, but sometimes I see some potential and give the series another chance.

    I’m surprised we disagree with this book because normally our tastes are very much alike.
