Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A new fun character that adds to the tale. A good mystery with suspense, action and humor, yet even more centered on 'who done it'. The ending leaves a definite trail that could be picked up in another book in the series. I will look forward to more stories with Noel and his family and friends.
