Marie’s Thoughts

This book is full of smart writing and sassy characters to back it up. It features a multi-generational sleuthing team from New York City and they take on solving a crime in the country. The characters are rich in personality and well developed. The mystery was entertaining and I appreciated the humor sprinkled into the pages. I was hooked from beginning to end.
