This was just the type of book I'd been wanting to read. It stars a heroine who does not bother with makeup and nice stylish clothes (neither do I, give me practical any day). While there are several potential love interests, neither seems to have "chemistry" so I'm just as glad that those brief moments in the book were just that: brief.
The main plot and core of the mystery was solid. The main character is well developed, though she often refers back to events from the first book which, since I haven't read it, weren't clear to me. These events were surrounding her love life which is the book's one downfall, so I was just as happy to skim over those references.
All in all, this is a good and quick read. I would have devoured it in one sitting if my DP had not forced me to go to bed.

After reading the first book( "Candy Apple Red" ) in this series about budding PI Jane Kelly, I was hooked! A fast, light but engrossing read. If you like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum or Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone characters - you will love this book and this series.
