    Last book in the series of four, hope there is more

    These books are great. There are a few editing issues, but nothing major. I loved the characters, the animals and the setting. Each book is around $4.00 and has over 500 pages. There is humor, mystery and murder without a lot of the horrific details some authors provide. There is no sex, cursing or any types of violent abuse such as rape or crimes against children. Whodunit and why is not difficult to figure out, yet there are quite a few surprizes to keep the reader involved. The animals help make the books, but they were not as involved in the storyline as in the previous books. These books are geared more to more to the women readers. Readers ages fifteen and up would enjoy these stories.

    After discovering her boyfriend of seven years Steve Kuchen cheated on her, Gretchen Birch dumps him and returns to her hometown to move back in with her mother and also becomes part of mom¿s doll restoration business. When her mother goes on a publicity tour for her new book, Gretchen attends her first auction where she wins the bidding on a box of Ginny dolls. However, her package and that of someone else gets mixed up and she leaves with a box of kewpie dolls instead. Reporter Ronnie Bean covered the event, but while working on a big exposé story is killed. The weapon is one of Gretchen¿s tools which has Steve¿s fingerprints on them because he took it from her. The police arrest Steve, but Gretchen does not believe the rat is a killer. She begins receiving kewpies dolls with threatening messages inside the boxes containing them. When two more people are murdered who know about the kewpie doll mix-up, Gretchen decides she is on the list unless she exposes the identity of the culprit. --- Readers will enjoy this engaging exciting amateur sleuth tale filled with quirky characters that provide comic relief when the tension seems ready to explode. Gretchen is a delight as she never makes up her mind but stumbles about trying to uncover a killer before he or she adds her onto the collector¿s dead list. Deb Baker provides a fun tale starring a likable living doll. --- Harriet Klausner
