Number 7 is an outstanding episode in this series. It covers domestic violence and the shelters for the victims involved. Liz Talbot has been hired by an attorney to protect Poppy Oliver from arrest by the Charleston police as the hit and run driver that killed a man. He refused to inform Liz and Nate Andrews, her partner who hired him. Poppy was at the scene of the accident and called for help. The police feel that she hit the victim and are afraid to admit it. Her vehicle has a front dent. There is strong evidence that women are in abusive situations. Who hired the attorney and why is Liz and Nate’s concern? Where are the two phones that the police review about the accident? What does the BOOKSHOP have to do in the accident? Of course, Colleen is there.

Thanks for sharing your review Betty.
I like that it addresses serious issues with the mystery in the middle. It explores the limits of “the end justifies the means.”
This is a good example wheb of the ends justifies can go wrong.
I also love this series Betty. I am waiting for the new one as well. She is a great author.
