It's great to know everything a main character knows throughout a mystery story when it comes to the punch. I really like the plot and appreciate the respect for characters and mysteries alike. Thinking is enjoyable but not optional. They don't make stuff like this anymore.

This book was a very enjoyable read. I found the characters believable and down to earth. So much more realistic than some of the overblown heros and heroines in modern fiction. I also enjoyed seeing Sally build a new life after the death of her beloved husband. It's nice to have a realistic character who could be my next door neighbor. I will definately keep Mary Jo Dawson on my list of authors to read when she has a new book out.

I found this book to be a very good combination of mystery, humor, great characters, and believable. Sally takes you through the mystery solving process so that you have the same information she has to see if you can solve the crime. I would recommend this book to anyone from 13 to 103.
