"Least favorite" is not the same as "don't like". I've
never read a DWJ I didn't like a lot. But the question
was there and under protest I answered it. Maybe
someone should work out which DWJs got favorite and
least favorite votes. (not me as I have accidently
deleted a couple of replies - and don't have time
before Christmas anyway). I suspect that there will be
few books that aren't on both lists. As for why I like
Deep Secret, I just loved the convention. I've been to
conventions that were just like that, and although
I've read other novels set in cons, including one set
at a Con I was at ("Charles Fort never mentioned
wombats" set at the 1975 Aussiecon), nothing else has
ever captured a con, and fandom, so well. 
Until recently I'd have put Sudden wild magic in my
least favorite list, but I've recently reread it and
enjoyed it hugely.
