My Review: A total 4 star!!!
This is the first book I have read in the series. I found it to be delightful. Marla and her family are just fun people. Easy read you can just jump right into. I didn’t know the “who dun it ” til the very end. I love this aspect of a book that just keeps your interest while you keep reading. Nancy Cohen is a wonderful story teller and I can’t wait to go back and read book one.
