Marie’s Thoughts

I really enjoyed this book. It sucked me in from the very beginning and is written in a very conversational style, which makes it easy to binge read. I found myself drawn to the secondary characters (a group of senior citizens who were stranded in Naneda on their way through town). I am sad they will most likely be in future installments because they were such a hoot! If you are looking for a lighthearted and engaging mystery, this is a great book to try!

Haven’t read any of her work, but since I respect your judgment, will do so soon. I think Crooked Lane is becoming on of my favorite publishers. I have found a lot to like there.
