The monthly book selection rumor that there is a curse on anyone reading it. Four members of the club have died after reading it. Phee’s Mother pleaded with her to come out and investigate the curse. Phew arrives to find the fifth member recovering from carbon monoxide poisoning. She had read the book. Phee is looking for answers to these questions: Were the deaths natural or are they murder? (Evidence suggested they might be murder). Who manipulated the book from almost no sales to a number one seller? Phee has a number of adventures before she finds the answer. For dog lovers, there are few adventures at a dog park. The ending is creative and it will surprise you. The actual perpetrator surprised me. I will read the next book.
