Can You Start the Series in the Middle?
This is the first book in the series I’ve read and I didn’t feel left behind in any way.

Marie’s Thoughts

This is a fast paced and engaging book. I classified it as soft boiled versus cozy because of some adult themes surrounding the murder, but no language or violence takes place that this cozy mystery fan objected to. The book kept me hooked from beginning to end. Carol Childs is a strong and vibrant protagonist you can’t help but root for.
