Suspense simmers in the suburb of Walnut Hills as Kate tries to figure out who killed her recently divorced friend Mona Sterling. A bottle of expensive scotch and an empty vial of sleeping pills convince the police that her death is a suicide. But Kate has her doubts. With the help of mutual friend Sharon Covington, Kate contends with Mona's troubled teenage daughter, her ex-husband and his suspicious wife, and a mysterious stranger plying kids with candy on the school grounds - all while trying to ferret out the killer and decide what to do about the handsome detective Michael Stone.
This was an enjoyable and quick read. The characters were likeable and the story was engaging.
