Comments : I love this cute series. It really is a cozy mystery and I love the way the characters interact and develop together. A.J. is a super main character that most readers can identify with. The sensuality of this novel is extremely tame and so is the language. Tension runs high, tempers run higher. I like the book, I like the series, I will read more.
