    Popped was exactly what I expected. It is a harmless, fun filled book. It's hard for me to describe the intricacies, but the plethora of characters shaped up the book for hilarity and manic disorder. The book is about a reality television show. Regan Reilley, our main heroine, steps in to oversee the safety of the cast, and also conduct an investigation. I thought the book was a hoot, and I found myself reading it for hours consecutively. I'm psyched for the following book. Who knows what will hap Popped was exactly what I expected. It is a harmless, fun filled book.

    OK, 2nd try for Carol Higgins Clark, and this will be my last. Not much mystery, way too much silliness, horribly shallow characters. She learned how to manage a "formula" from her mother, but Mom's mystery recipe is more delicious by far. OK, 2nd try for Carol Higgins Clark, and this will be my last.

    More than anything else, it's the setting of Carol Higgins Clark's new mystery novel, "Popped" that will draw readers into it. The setting is on the set of a possible reality show about hot air ballooning--with the payoff coming at the Alburque Balloon festival. What will keep you turning the pages is the novel fast pace and quirky characters. And what will leave you feeling a bit let down by the story is an ending that just rings a bit hollow, with an odd twist that should have been better fore More than anything else, it's the setting of Carol Higgins Clark's new mystery novel, "Popped" that will draw readers into it.

And what will leave you feeling a bit let down by the story is an ending that just rings a bit hollow, with an odd twist that should have been better foreshadowed by the events that come before it. All in all, this is a fun novel to read, but it's not necessarily a great story. The central mystery is intriguing enough, though it lacks a really great twist and resolution to make it truly satisfying in the end. The novel also suffers from a bit of predictablity--especially in the final few pages. Honestly, I wish this one had been a bit longer. The first two thirds of the book do a nice job of setting up the circustances and the quirky characters only for the second half of the book to rush to a resolution. It's a shame really because the book is a fun, fast paced read, but it does leave you hungering for something more once the final page has been turned.

    In the 7th installment of Carol Higgins Clark's popular Regan Reilly PI series, Popped, Regan returned in this cozy caper. In this story, we've found Regan in Las Vegas to help out an old friend who was producing a reality show that would really take to the high skies. In a wedding-cake shaped hot air balloon, three married couples would renew their vows and win money for the prize. But someone threatened her friend to halt production of the show, when "accidents" have occurred on the set.

    Regan investigates weird happenings at Danny's reality show production. The camera disappears, people slipping, threatening letters etc. This book is a short read; however, the organization is chaotic with multiple intersecting story lines that conclude perfectly. This was one of the worst ones. A weak mystery at best. There is something about Regan and Jack though that keeps me interested in the series...

    What goes up must come down and come to an end. Hot air ballooning makes a great theme. This series is a fun, quick read and always fun.

His show is basically scripted, the cast chosen by the owner of a local cable channel, who has pitted Danny’s team against another team who is working to produce a sit-com. One team will have their week long show expanded to be carried on the cable channel. When strange things immediately start occurring, he calls Regan to see if she will help determine if someone is sabotaging his production. It’s a weird reality show and a weirder sit-com. Both sides appear to be receiving threats, it’s almost as if the man in charge of this contest is out to get them both! So, will the show go on or will life in reality television be stopped before it starts?

    Who is trying to sabotage the production of a reality television show about marriages in trouble featuring a renewal of vows, a romantic hot-air balloon ride, and a million dollars for the winning couple? Intrepid private investigator Regan Reilly goes undercover to find, and stop, the culprit. Cute cozy mystery minus the murder.

    The premise of this book was really stupid. I have tried several of her books (5 in total) and I only liked 1. She is just not that great of a writer. Maybe if you like light-cotton-candy type mysteries??

    these are just clean fun mysteries. I don't know if their squeaky clean but there's no sex scenes. There may be some very mild cussing but if there is it's very mild and very infrequent these are just clean fun mysteries. I don't know if their squeaky clean but there's no sex scenes.

    This was awful to get through. The writing was terrible - the characters were uninteresting, the plot was ridiculous.

    Entertaining for a long car ride. Simple tale and story. Too many characters introduced and no follow up on a few items mentioned, like what happened to the mailbag?

    It was very cute and whimsical. However there was not a murder it was just a mystery of things happening. Cute but not one of my favorites of hers.

    This was an audio book that was in our library. Thought it would be funny. Boy, was I disappointed. Shallow characters and I didn't like the story line.
