I read most of this series years ago and for some reason got sidetracked after the previous book, so I was delighted to discover four "new" books to read as I remember loving the series. Unfortunately, this was just not a compelling book - while some level of consumerism was inevitable, given the murder location (a hot new mall opening) the book and the characters come across terribly shallow. The mystery was well paced, though I did feel like critical information was held back to the end. The plot suffered from having an unsympathetic victim and a few too many twists. A quick read with some series character development, but I think I'd recommend new readers go back to the beginning of the series.
