Professor Lizzie Stuart is a wonderfully realistic and intelligent woman sleuth who is human enough for all to relate too, a great lead character. Lizzie finds herself entangled in a murder mystery that involves all the good stuff: love, family, money, and violence. Not only was the plot interesting and engaging, this book was so well written with witty dialogue and real emotion, that even non-mystery lovers can appreciate the read. I couldn't help but wonder if the the little side stories and observations reflect the author's own life experiences.
