This books starts with a plane crash - and the body on board being eaten by a bear! You'll have a good read while trying to figure out who done it to whom.
Part mystery, part adventure, part humor. A woman's soon-to-be ex-husband dies in a plane crash and is presumably eaten by a bear. He leaves behind a trail of bad dealings that lead investigators to suspect his wife is behind his death. The plot thickens as the body count goes up.
Husband's plane crashes, but there is no body. Wife becomes prime suspect. Funny mystery
Screwball comedy from a writer I'll be looking for again.
As Stacy Kavanaugh's acrimonious divorce drags toward its conclusion, her soon-to-be ex-husband manages to crash his private plane into a Montana mountainside. When Stacy is the discovered to be the beneficiary of a hitherto-unknown half million dollar life insurance policy, she quickly finds herself suspected of arranging the accident.
LaFoy's finely-tuned sense of the ridiculous manages to keep all this funny in a Janet-Evanovitch kind of way. Great fun.
I enjoyed the book, Stacy was witty and fun. New things happening all the time. I enjoyed the characters.
"How am I, a smart, confident-and did I mention, innocent?--wonam suppose to react when smack-dab in the middle of my messy divorce the single-engine plane of my soon-to-be ex-husband crashes into the mountains of Montana's Bitterroot National Forest and I become the prime suspect in his disappearance?*"
*"Did I also mention that there was no body? (There is a very strong possibility it has been dragged away by bears. Yes, bears!"
"Grin and bear it--like I've done most of my adult life--only now, I've decided, I/m going to be the one asking the important questions (see above) and not taking any answers at face value..."
