5.0 out of 5 starsNice to see bad woman come to a bad end
Reviewed in the United States on October 29, 2012
This is yet another strong entry in the Sophie Littlefield series set somewhere in MO. It is nice to see a middleaged overweight woman kick booty. She keeps trying to have something happen with the sheriff who is smokin' but life seems to interfere. Her partner in crime is designed to appeal to younger readers and is an Annie Oakley shot with personality out the wazzoo. Her daughter is a hairstylist with great talent and a sucky lovelife. Read this crime novel and feel better about your own life. Laugh at the misadventures and trials of this MO mom.

I have read this series in order but I really feel you could pick it up anyplace and get caught up in Stella's life quickly. Christy's family antics add another dimension to the storyline. I was surprised to see Ms. Littlefield tackle the idea of gay relationships but it was done in a perfectly sensible way without sensationalizing things or making the characters involved too one-dimensional. Carry on!
This was a good mystery. I thought I had read another book by this author but once I got book, I did not recognize any of the other books she had written listed in front of this book. I am a member of a Mystery Book Club and would definitely recommend this book for reading to the book club. It was a good mystery and an easy read.
