Overview

Smart and funny, Thea Kozak is carving out a career for herself while trying to win her critical mother's approval.

Home for Easter, Thea's mother introduces her to Julie Bass, a young widow whose husband died in a horrific accident at the local auto racetrack. Julie is the woman Thea's mother wants her to be--married to a suitable man and producing adorable children.

While resisting her mother's insistence that she use her own experience of losing a husband to help Julie, Thea brings her amateur detective skills to bear when the racetrack "accident" proves to be murder and Julie is arrested.

Bypassing the authorities, Thea searches for the real killer, confronting crooked rednecks, corrupt bankers, and barreling through a web of lies. But this time, she may not be able to save herself... or Julie.

I started reading this series after reading her Burgess series and am disappointed. Some of it is my fault; I really do know what to expect from books about amateur sleuths and know I generally don:t like them. This series has all of the usual flaws: the ridiculous number of homicides occurring in the vicinity of said amateur, the unlikeliness of her gaining access to information, and the general obnoxiiousness of some silly twink thinking she can do a better job than professionals and the ridiculousness of her actually doing so. In this book, Thea is particularly obtuse (come to think of it, her failure to suspect the villain in the previous book was also pretty dumb). I had a pretty good idea where this one was going quite early on. The writer's wry humor almost makes the book worth reading, but in the end, Thea's foolish busy-bodying is just too annoying to continue with this series.
