Be careful! This is only a free sample of the novel -- it's just 17 or so pages long. Forewarned.

This book was 242 pages long. It is a rather silly farce about a middle aged woman getting caught in a lie. Rather than confess, she continues her escapade, enlisting her friends to help her solve a crime. This leads to all kinds of problems, some of them quite funny. It does ramble on and on at times, but there are so few books involving women of a certain age, in rather exciting circumstances, i found it rather enjoyable. Through trail and error and more errors and trails, this book comes to satisfactory ending, the heroine and her friends save face and the day. Chick lit. This book has a bit of everything. I even got a few nice laughs out of it as well as a few moans and groans. I would read the author and this series of books again, especially if the author has the girls act a bit more grown up, but still have just as much fun. I look forward to the next book in the series. This book is sort of an in between book for hens and roosters. I think both would enjoy it, if they get past chapers one, two and three, that is where the interest begins. For adults. AD

I took this e-book on my recent cruise to the Bahamas and enjoyed the story immensely. It was not difficult to read and for once, I didn't figure out whodunit in advance. I felt there were a few loose ends: Why was Missy being stalked? Why had Livie put the holes in the floor and how? Why would the school consider taking her back with her letters and room destruction? I doubt prep schools would be so generous. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries. Try it, you'll like it!

This was not a free sample but full length book. I found it humorous and engaging. The mystery resolution is not obvious from the beginning as I have seen in other books and overall well written. I enjoyed the protagonist of the story and look forward to reading another by this author.
