Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.
I'm finally getting around to reading this series. I have most of the books, and they have been sitting on my shelf for a long time.
For book 1... the mystery wasn't good. A lot of time was spent on setting it up, but when it was came to the big reveal, it was a letdown.
There wasn't much focus on the cat, Koko. I didn't find Koko's ability to read backwards to be important. It only came up a couple of times.
I mainly enjoyed the wit throughout the book. The depiction of the art scene was funny.
