I am big fan of this author and have read all her books to date. This was a good book that kept me intrigued, and wondering. I especially like her writing style, as it is easy to read yet well written. Although not neccessary, I do recommend startng with her first book and working forward, as you will get to kow each character and want to continue reading the next book. Her newest book, Moonlight, Magnolias, and Murder is my favorite so far.

This was a nice, easy enjoyable read. The story line had quite a few twists and turns that kept my interest. Ellie Avery is vacationing in Washington,DC. While sightseeing with other military wives whose husbands are attending training classes, Ellie finds herself witnessing a possible murder. Ellie’s sister-in-law, Summer, is a suspect in the murder and Ellie can’t leave well enough alone, so she starts her own investigation to the possible murder. Although pregnant, she doesn’t let that stop her from getting herself into some sticky situations. This is where I had some issues. The story would be going along fine, then all of a sudden it’s like ‘oh wait, I’m pregnant, I shouldn’t be doing this’. Being a mother myself, I may be over-sensitive, but I got annoyed at some of the risks she took without a thought to the baby. It would’ve been more believable if Ellie’s character wasn’t pregnant. There’s a lot going on in this story, and at first some of it seemed irrelevant, but it all tied together at the end, which I thought was great. Also, as with other reviewers, I found the tips at the end of the chapters to be useless. I suppose if I was a traveler, they may have been helpful, but didn't mean anything to me.

I enjoyed reading and now want to read others in the series. Ellie and mitch were going to have a vacation together. Had her parents to take the 3 yr old and dog to dogcare camp. When the airforce decided Mitch should take some training in Washington DC. So Ellie decided to cash in thier airlines tickets and go with Mitch. Her good friend Abby and her husband was going to the same training. So the airforce wives got together and hired a tour guide to show them what subway stations to get on and off and where to go to see what museums and tourist spots to see. Ellie and Abby where both pregant and visited all the bathrooms and tourist spots. Ellie cousing was going to DC at same time to meet with someone who was in Korea with her dad. she did not know how her dad died or what her family would not talk about it and where ashamed. but her child had come down with chicken pox, so Ellie was going to take her place and find out what she could. Ellie was also going to get together with Mitch's sister Summer who was back their at collage. Summer was late meeting with Ellie and called to say the police were interviewing her about a murder. The police thought Summer and maybe Ellie helped to push a guy in front of subway. So Ellie was motivated to find the real person who pushed him. So Ellie finds out what a lot of people around her who were suspious and gets involved in wierd ways. It was enjoyable who dun it book.

I like all the descriptions of the memorials to the service members. The only way I may get to see them will be if I get a chance to go on an Honor Flight. (What an experience check it out).
