At first I thought it was starting a bit slow - but then I couldn't put it down! This book has everything happening in it - a fun and down to earth read! I think it's one of Jennifer's best books - never boring - and highly recommended!

I agreed with several of the write ups. Not as funny as some.. kids made me crazy (but mine do too) and they were tied into the story plot which made it all work. There was joy at the end which always works for me!

Really good book with some very serious issues. There were times that I put it down just so I could catch my breath! You'll be nervous, you'll choke up & most of all you chuckle. Not my favorite book but if you love Crusie like I do then you will have to read it just b/c it's something she wrote!

I just finished this book and to me it was just okay as compared to her other books. This book was a bit more serious than her other books, which are usually very funny, and I suppose that makes sense as this was a bit of a more serious story. I found some of the scenes that followed the main character's daughter tedious. I just didn't care what a couple of kids (elementary aged kids at that) were planning and thinking. I loved all of the scenes with C.L., especially the ones with his uncle. Maddie, the lead character, almost went on my stupid list near the middle of the book when she started complaining that the C.L., her love interest, had lied about why he came to town, which was untrue. However, the narration did not stay on that theme for long. Overall, the book was written well. There was LOTS of chemistry between the main character's, Maddie and C.L. Ms. Crusie did an excellent job of weaving a complicated thread about a small town murder and how small town life played a role in it. Overall I really enjoyed the book and definately left me smiling and happy at the end. I am still a big fan of this writer.

We picked out this book for our book club to read because we wanted something light and easy to read. We succeeded! The plot is not deep, but it is entertaining. There is a little bit of everything - mystery, drama, romance, and humor. While some things are predictable, others take you completely by surprise! I have to say, I didn't see the end coming and would have been wrong in guessing "who dunnit" :-) If you are looking for a book that is quick to read, but also keeps you reading because you want to know what happens next - this is the book for you! Most importantly, it has a happy ending. I like to finish a book with a smile on my face and a "feel good" feeling in my heart. Winner here.

That first sentence is what hooked me on. I definately laughed out loud on this one. The plot was definately a great mystery and found myself caring for the characters involved. I always suggest this one to everyone.

Such a great book! If you're looking for something easy to read just for entertainment, this is it. I got so involved with the story and the characters that I couldn't and didn't want to put it down! Twists and turns, romance and intrigue - great story!
