All of Karen Kijewski's books are fun. Clever writing, fast reading. I particularly enjoy them because they are set in the Sacramento area, and that is where I live. It's fun to read about places I've been to. The "girl" detective Kat Colorado drinks diet Dr. Pepper and instant espresso just like real people.
