    " A good read and followup to original book. A great series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 2/6/2014

    " much better than first. Good humor, pathos, suspense "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 1/26/2014

    " I enjoyed Deborah Knott as a character and I want to read more of this series. Incidentally my librarian loved it too!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 1/11/2014

    " I love this book and this character. This series has become one of my all-time favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 1/9/2014

    " Great setting, likable characters and good humor. Maron's books have been a great light read for me while on break from school. I like the prologue style of her beginning chapters and the entries at the beginning of each individual chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kilian Metcalf | 1/8/2014

    " I like the leisurely way she carries you into her setting before the murder occurs. No rushing, time for everything. Love her huge, extended family. One paragraph in the hospital waiting room had 17 named characters, plus children and cousins. This would be a major flaw in a writer less gifted, but the point she is making is that in an emergency there is a flood of family. The reader is expected to be overwhelmed by the numbers, but also comforted by the support they provide for one of their own. Highly recommend this author and series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marti | 12/3/2013

    " I had not figured this out and was surprised by the who in the "who dun it". Liked it better than the first book. Enjoying how the characters are rounding out... Wonder if the growth will be like others or will become static. I have book three already - i guess the hunt is started for the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 9/22/2013

    " This was a hard book to get into and it seemed everything of interest happened in the last 50 pages. I like the character, this was just a bit slow. "
