    Story
    "Kathy , Kathy, Kathy.. Let it go already, r"

    A 32 yr old woman goes on and on and on and on about a botched junior high friendship. What would Kathy think, or do , or say! too much filler. Thin story material. Jamie was not likable at the end. Too silly and self-centered. Needed serious editing. More events , much less speculating on kathy's failed nursing career she never bothered about. Enjoyed the first book this one was boring, redundant, repetitive.

    Story
    "Vintage glass can be deadly!!"

    In Queensville, Michigan, Jaymie Leighton, enjoys collecting her vintage kitchenware and cookbooks. She has lots of friends, including her ex's fiancé, the family at the local B&B, and a couple of men who are interested in her. But Kathy, her best friend from twenty years ago, still refuses to speak to her and Jaymie has decided it's time to finally clear the air. This can't happen though, because Kathy's body is discovered by Jaymie at the Fourth of July celebration, murdered with Jaymie's beautiful vintage square glass bowl. Everyone in town knows about their situation. Thus begins the search for the killer.

    This is the second book in this series and I have found them both very enjoyable. Kathy is spunky and determined in everything she does. The descriptions of the vintage items in the story is excellent and fascinating, including the foods from old cookbooks. The mystery was full of twists and turns, but made total sense in end. Looking forward to the next one. I've been listening to these on audio, which adds a lots to my enjoyment also.

    "second best"

    This story was disappointing because it did not talk enough about her vintage kitchen business. The first one was way better and I don't know if i'll move on to # 3
