This was the first Clair Malloy I read and it got me hooked on the series. The clues are VERY subtle, but if you read it closely, you can figure it out. The only thing I don't like is that Clair comes across as snotty. I don't like that. Fortunately Ms. Hess toned her down a bit in the later books.

The main character was unlikable. Since she was also the narrator of the story, that pretty much killed the story.

Life is hard enough when running a book store and solving murders but add living with a dramaic teenage daughter and you have a very entertaining cozy mystery.

A comical murder mystery with a witty, sarcastic heroine is the sure thing to beat the winter blues or to take to the beach!

She has very funny comments about characters, her daughter and herself. She has teenagers down pat. Not a problem, I know where she coming from. Good story.

Enjoyable little cozy. I like the main character's daughter. She is a hoot along with the daughter's friend.
