The tone is upbeat and funny despite a few dark scenes in this well-written gentle read/cozy mystery. The twists at the end are surprising and satisfying.

Loved the book! Usually I can't stand it when a male author writes from a woman's perspective, but not only did he nail it, he offered insight that went beyond the hilarious sarcastic comments that kept me laughing and pondering through the whole book. Especially great ending!

I absolutely LOVE the commentary in this book! Witty, sarcastic, with just enough cynicism, I loved Alanis from page one! While the book went along pretty quickly, it did do very well at keeping me guessing! Excited for the second!

I wasn't sure about this book as I first starting reading it, but it didn't take long to hook me. It has some unexpected twists, which was great. I'm hoping that the authors release another edition soon!

A laugh out loud quick read.

The "voice" of the book has a
delightfully sarcastic outlook on life paired with a warm and witty heart.

I hated to see the book end!
