Lee Martin created an excellent female detective for this series of mysteries. Deb Ralston tries to juggle her family and career without neglecting either. Although she often feels that she fails to do both justice, she is a remarkable character. The entire series is well worth the time spent tracking down all the books. I highly recommend not only this book but the entire series. Great for reading while cozying in a comfy chair next to a fire and sipping a hot drink. Or by the pool in summer. Enjoy!
Move kinda slow, but if you like 'cozies' then this should work for you, except it is rather graphic.
