A retired schoolteacher—and yes, daughter of an F. Scott Fitzgerald fan—Daisy Buchanan has finally found her calling in the quaint village of Millbury, Pennsylvania. While her husband endlessly renovates their old house, Daisy happily presides over Sometimes a Great Notion, a quirky shop that sells sewing bits and bobs, antiques, and jewelry.
Daisy has her eye on an antique dollhouse and a classic Singer Featherweight at the local auction—until her friend and mentor, auctioneer Angus Backstead, is led away in handcuffs. It appears he bashed in the head of a drinking buddy who stole a set of fancy fountain pens. Daisy’s sure the sprightly old-timer couldn’t have done it. But if Daisy can’t stitch together the bidder truth—and soon—Angus will be going once, going twice… gone forever.
My Review : 4 star: Going Through The Notions, is a quirky 283 page book that will have you turning the pages faster then the bodies are being found. Daisy, is in the drivers seat leading her friends in a fast paced thrill ride. She is truly a dedicated friend as she tries to save her friend Angus from a life in prison. Grab this series, there is more fun and sleuthing outside her store.
