Laura and her husband move to a small town from Chicago, and have to adjust to their new surroundings. At the same time, there’s a murder in the neighborhood, and Laura joins in the investigation.
I liked the friendship aspect of this story more than the mystery part. The mystery was a little hokey and far-reaching, frankly. But the relationships among the women could have been developed further … The women were likeable and strong.
This was a Christian mystery, but there was no preaching, and just a smattering of mentions of God. This was another area that could’ve been developed more, as Laura tended to think about God when she was worries about her marriage, and marriage is a pretty hefty topic!
The marriage survived, the murderer was caught, and the friendships thrived. All’s well that ends well.
When *you’re* ready for a break from some heavy reading, pick up a cozy mystery.
Now I’m off to read some Anne Rivers Siddons. *waves*
