The unique cover caught my eye and I was looking forward to the story. The plot was intriguing  However, I was disappointed. The writing moved freely and it was easy to read but the characters did not bond with me. There was nothing funny with actions of middle age was so out a character of a person just left shaking my head. The daughter’s action was unreal to me as she told her Mother what to do. I did not like the encouragement of a 12 year youngest to hack into the internet was okay as long as they didn’t get caught.  All the characters need more development.

Poppy Harmon was shocked to learn that her husband had gambled her financial assets away and has left a huge debt. Having been actress at one time she had no marketable skills. Poppy decided to open a private investment agency with her two best friends. No one would hire the agency until her daughter’s boyfriend becomes the front of the company. The agency is hired to find the jewelry of an actress living in a retirement community. Will Poppy succeed? I recommend this book.

    I definitely would not like the 12 year old calling the shots. Also, this “if you don’t get caught, then it’s OK” attitude is a real problem in our society.
