review 1: Either I'm getting really intolerant, or Helen Hawthorne is getting dumber. Either way, parts of this book were downright painful to get through. Overall, the storylines are pretty ok and somewhat believable, but when I get to anything having to do with the part regarding her sis...

review 1: Great cozy, again, from Elaine Viets. Some very important issues are presented about being a single parent, and there were times I actually laughed out loud as well; great sense of humor in her stories. Also, at the end of the book, she gives great shopping tips and some helpful ...

review 1: I am sorry to say, this book did not live up to the standards set by her previous Mystery Shopper books. While the cause she supported was admirable, it seemed as if she was preaching at times, and lost focus of the story line. She introduced a character who was unrealistic, whil...
