I received this ebook as a LibraryThing Member Giveaway and I'm so glad I did because I absolutely loved it! Not only was it a murder mystery that kept me guessing, but the banter between characters kept me laughing out loud! I found Mercy Watts a very likeable character and her family and friends were all interesting and wonderful. They rounded out the plot and I loved how unique some of them were...like The Girls. I found it easy to visualize them and some parts were so funny that I had to read them out loud to my husband who also laughed. I found myself wanting to get back to reading the book and stayed up way past my bedtime, I read a lot of mysteries and many of them feel so predictable and artificial. This Mercy Watts mystery was a fresh and delightful change. I love her style and her interactions with family. The humour reminded me a little of the Spellman series by Lisa Lutz, who is one of my favourite series, so this book was definitely up my alley. I enjoyed it enough that I'm going to purchase all the rest of the books in the series today! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a sassy and intelligent sleuth with a host of quirky characters and lots of humour!
