I'm an avid mystery reader, and this was terrific. It was a great escape, well written, and full of surprises. The sexual tension and impending doom were tempered with relevant sub-plots about co-workers and fun family dynamics. The pacing is just what I love in a mystery--a mix of nervous anticipation, characters I care about, and just enough humor. Especially clever are chapter endings that make it a real page-turner. It was hard to put this one down. Write more soon!! (I'm a Kate Atkinson fan, and this didn't disappoint.)
