The first in a series about Abby Cooper, who has very special and keen insight, allowing her to tell others things they don't even know themselves. Abby gets herself in scrapes, and then there's that hunky cop to rescue her. A fast and enjoyable read.
Jane is finally getting married to detective Van Dyne, and she and Shelly spend a lot of time finding the right fabrics, hats and flowers for the fake wedding to be thrown by Mel's mother. Meanwhile her deceased husband's mother tries to play havoc with the whole thing. Jane's children are almost all grown, so we have seen their development, and we get to meet her parents, too. It is more of a Jane story than a mystery.
This is a most engaging read. It captures you right from the start, and it is a whirlwind of events from there onward. I started it last night and could not put it down until 3 AM when I knew I had to get some rest.
This is a good writer, a really good writer. His style of writing captured my attention, gave the reporter's character a real sense of being. I stayed up way too late reading to the end, as I just could not stop. I will look forward to reading more from Mofina.
