    In a world where everyone talks about women’s emancipation, where we see more and more female presidents and prime ministers, it’s good to see that contemporary writers are also able to write engaging and funny fiction with strong female characters that might just be your next-door neighbour. The thing is that Lola Hussey, the main character in Betty Byres’ book, is not an extraordinary woman with extraordinary powers, ready to save the world. Instead, Lola can be any one of the millions of women out there, ready to take on the world, not afraid to speak up their mind and fulfill their fantasies.

    In this second book in the Lola Hussey Mysteries, we see a more mature main character who is ready to take on a new case and find the truth behind the mystery that revolves around her brother. Although there are a few coincidences here and there, I believe that the author herself also matured as a writer alongside her character. Compared to the first book in the series, “Don’t Shed a Tear” makes a better read and, although it follows the same structure and pattern as the first book, it leaves the readers wondering what’s the next challenge Lola is going to have to face in the next installment.
