A great read! This is the third book I've read in the 'Roxy' series, and the best so far. Roxy has endearing, realistic qualities -- she's believable, not superhuman. The other characters in this book have also become more rounded; their personalities have become more distinct, unique, less stereotypical. Good storyline too; while you can make a good stab at 'whodunnit', there are enough red herrings to keep you guessing. Well written, keeps you coming back until you've finished it.
