Pretty good for the first introduction of Kate Yancy. There's lots of suspects - and laughs - along the way of discovering "who dun it"...

This book is both suspenseful and romantic at the same time in equal parts. I'm a mystery buff and not really into romance but it held my attention.

Just shows not to judge a book by its cover. Hated this book after I read this paragraph on page 13, "Less than ten minutes later the office entry bell jingled and a huge, beefy Negro wearing a navy blue slouch cap and a tailored navy blue suit pushed his way inside. The man was immmense, and a complete stranger to me, and I was so startled by his sudden appearance I almost wet my pants." Almost every time she mentions him in the storyline, she still calls him the Negro instead of the chauffeur. Hated it.

Another in Edna Buchanan's Britt Montero, intrepid reporter, series. The Britt Montero books are best read in sequence. This is a riveting plot that leaves the reader trying to figure who-dun-it with a surprise ending. You don't know until you get to the end of the book!

If you're a follower of Meg Lanslow, ironworker, this is one of her funnier misadventures. Whodunit ends up being a surprise to the reader when everything that seems wrapped up unravels...
