This is the second in a series and I gave the story a 3 because it is supposed to be a mystery and I knew early on who the murderer must be. That said, the characters are likable and interesting. They really are the book. And with a very good performance, this is a fun book to listen to. I worked on a quilt while it played and the time was really enjoyable.
I would suggest reading the first two in order as the character's personalities do develop. If you want something intense, neither book is going to meet your need, but when you just want to sit back an enjoy, give them a try.

I really wanted to like this series. As a Dorothy Gilman fan I was looking for a similar tough and resourceful older heroine. Unfortunately, even though all of the characters kept talking about how quirky and unexpectedly resourceful the heroine Eleanor Trewynn was, nothing in her character or actions proved it to me. She is like a cardboard cutout. I read two of the books in the series to give it a chance, but was disappointed in both.
I love Carola Dunn's books but with this book was quite disappointed. It was blatantly obvious from the very beginning who the murderer was and was so odd why all the characters kept going around in circles like it was a huge mystery - especially when they're portrayed as clever and insightful. I spent the entire book waiting in frustration for the characters to catch up.
