Funny and Funny!!!

What a great book to keep you entertained, yet engaged as each chapter builds its mysterious cliff hanger. The narrator is so perfect for the story. She is articulate and has the right tone for each character. Bravo on this selection.

Witty, funny, engaging, light mystery....what more could I ask for!

I loved it!

This book was just great fun. The reader was wonderful, slipping easily in and out of characters and the mystery element kept me going. Jane Stanton Hitchcock has a real feel for upper crust New York society, the older money, the jockeying for position. If it was not a perfectly constructed tale, it was one of those times you really didn't care because the ride was so fun. I'm getting another of her books now.
