In the gentle coastal town of South Cove, California, all Jill Gardner wants is to keep her store - Coffee, Books, and More - open and running. So why is she caught up in the business of murder? When Jill's elderly friend Miss Emily calls in a fit of pique, she already knows that the city council is trying to force Emily to sell her dilapidated old house. But Emily's gumption goes for naught when she dies unexpectedly and leaves the house to Jill, along with all of her problems...and her enemies.
I love the humor, the friendships and the bit of suspense! I have all that are available to me in my library

Hazel Rose never dreamed that the murder mystery book group she and her friend Carlene started would stage a real murder. Nevertheless, the normally composed Carlene is unusually angry and rattled one night during a book group discussion and dies after drinking cyanide-spiked tea.
I enjoyed listening to the narrator.
The content was good. Kept me guessing. I would and will listen to more selections by this author

In a novel in which ancient traditions conflict with reality and the pressures of modern life, a young European princess proves that simplicity, courage, and dignity can win the day, and forever alters her world. Determined to make a difference in the world, she persuades her father to let her volunteer for the Red Cross in East Africa.
Are you a crier? Well read this. I love Danielle Steel's books. Sometimes it gets exhausting the crying.
Olympia Crawford Rubinstein has a busy legal career, a solid marriage, and a way of managing her thriving family with grace, humor, and boundless energy. With twin daughters finishing high school, a son at Dartmouth, and a kindergartner from her second marriage, there seems to be no challenge to which Olympia cannot rise.
Danielle Steel is great! Liked this book like all the others.

Life was good for Liz and Jack Sutherland. In 18 years of marriage, they had built a family, a successful law practice, and a warm, happy home near San Francisco, in a house on Hope Street. Then, in an instant, on Christmas Day, it all fell apart, and Liz was left alone to pick up the pieces.
In for a good cry then you will get what you want. I always am pleased with a Danielle Steele novel.
New York Times best-selling author Rita Mae Brown, co-writer of the wildly popular Mrs. Murphy mystery series, weaves a captivating tale from her foxhunting series. The New Year's Day festivities of the Jefferson Hunt are about to pick up when a promising Harvard Law School alum is found stabbed to death. As the investigation proceeds, those searching for the truth realize they might not survive to enjoy the next New Year's festivities.
It was hard for me to give even 1 star. I loved all the other Rita Mae Brown books but this is the first I wanted to get my point back. Sorry Rita I cannot even stand her voice. Keep writing the Mrs. Murphy ones, please.

Never have two species co-created a work of such suspense and humorous catitude as the wildly popular mystery series by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown. This time out, that agile-witted tiger puss Mrs. Murphy makes the round of parties where Virginia's Very Best People mingle with some of the worst. Together, she and her human must unravel a veritable cat's cradle of ambition, greed, and murder at the center of which waits a killer with the most tangled of motives.
A++ For Rita Mae Brown

The New York Times best-selling Mrs. Murphy mysteries delight fans with an irresistible blend of suspense, engaging characters, and the entertaining high jinks of some quick-witted, four-legged friends. With more than two million copies in print, the series has made co-authors Rita Mae and Sneaky Pie Brown the most popular human/feline writing team in the world.
Really like Rita Mae Brown's books. A+
