I have enjoyed all the Victoria Trumbull Mysteries. They are well written.
I emailed the author and she answered with a humble response that seems appropriate for the author of these books. I wanted to know if she lives on Martha's Vineyard. I also wanted to know when her next book would be published. She said in spring of 2009. It turned out she was right. I have my name wish listed for her latest. Can't wait until my name comes up. Literally can't wait. I may have Amazon it. She's that good.
I loved the characters in this book, the protagonist is 92, whoa, and is delightful. But, I thought the story was very weak, I found myself not caring who did it and why. But the characters were enough to keep my turning pages even when I was bored with the story.
