A cozy mystery that is a funny and a superb read yet it deals with a major social problem. The first portion had me laughing at the antics. This is the fifth book in the series and I have been fortunate to read all of them. The series is set in the 1970’s and features members of the Country Club’s set. Details of the area are perfect. Telephone on the wall, going next door to call out, the comments on Mr. Coffee are fabulous. I still remember my first one and I am not a coffee drinker. While each book can be read as a standalone, reading in order will add to your enjoyment. Ellison Russell is a widow and her teenage daughter is Grace. She has a dog, Max. Her caregiver is Aggie. Her Mother wants everything to be proper. Much to her Mother’s dismay, Ellison keeps finding dead people who have been murdered. She has selected Hunter Tafft for Ellison next husband while Allison is developing a crush on the lead homicide detective, Anarchy. In this book, Ellison leaves her decorator, Khaki White alone in her home to pick up Aggie. She is gone 20 minutes and finds Khaki dead in her study. Anarchy has a new partner, Detective Peters who a law abiding officer. He feels everything is black and white. At this point, the tale has enough twists to keep you reading. I didn’t put down until finished it. You will learn about Society’s feeling about domestic abuse at the time. I highly recommend this book and series. Disclosure: I received a free copy from Henery Press through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.
