Laugh out loud!
Ms. Benson's narration ... it draws you right into the story.
When Charlotte takes what she thinks is aspirin. Not going to spoil it but it is funny!
Ms. Benson really gets the characters. She gives each one their own voice. Charlotte has a lot of 'in her head' dialogue and Ms. Benson is able to make it so you know what Charlotte is saying out loud and what she is not.
Pineapple Lies is the story of Charlotte, a woman in her mid 20's, who lives in a 55+ retirement community. With her 2 surrogate mothers along for the ride, Charlotte is determined to figure out who murdered the woman that was buried in her backyard. Throw in a hunky pawnbroker who happens to be the son of the dead woman and you have yourself a comedy waiting to happen.
Ms. Vansant has written a solid mystery full of humor, laughs and surprises. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the cozy mystery genre of books.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
