Another fast and enjoyable read in the Torie O'Shea series. I have been reading them out of order as I can get them from other members but the series works well even out of sequence. I'm definately hooked and looking forward to more from this author.
Tori O'Shea's small historical town is so typical of small towns all over the U.S. except for the murders that she's so adept at solving. MacPherson brings us Tori as a very normal and likable woman with a heightened sense of curiosity. Again, a good mystery.
