5th in the series and my favorite so far. I loved the antique cars featured in this novel and the atmosphere. Also, the hint of a possible romatic relationship for Betsy. The woman needs more in her life than her work and her murder solving! The writing has definitely improved since the first novel, Crewel World, and I can only hope it continues to do so. This is turning out to be a great series.
These characters are starting to feel like friends. But in this book, I felt as smart as Betsy--I figured out whodunnit fairly early on. However, my hunch wasn't confirmed until the last few pages so I kept reading in every spare moment.
