Kate is at the end of her rope, estranged from her husband and unhappy at the prospect of a possible divorce, all stemming from the rift that was caused by her recent miscarriage.

I grabbed this book at the library because this month we have to make suggestions for this year's mystery book read & I had never read this author. It was easy & quick reading. I have an angel collection, and fascination with angels in general. And two angels made an appearance in this book. It was light entertainment.

If I had read this Augusta Goodnight first, I would never have read anymore of them. This is the worst one that I have read. The characters were totally uninteresting. There was nothing "cozy" about it, and introducing all the drama which comes very close to melodrama into the story really detracts from the mystery. I kept waiting for the last page,and it seemed to take forever.

I thought this was a cute premise - a guardian angel named Augusta Goodnight appears to help those she has appointed to help in times of trouble. This story contains a wife separated from her husband, murder of an old housekeeper, and some mildly eccentric relatives gathered for a family reunion.

This was a good book. I guessed the murderer early but there was a twist to it that was unexpected. This is a light mystery. I have read others by this author and plan to read more from the Augusta Goodnight series.

Good book. I enjoyed the back story and the way in which the concept of angels was handled. Definitely a lot of mysterious elements which kept me engaged.

This one of the series was interesting with the family history interwoven in the mystery. I had figured out "whodunit" but there was an unexpected twist. Fun.

Mystery "lite" with artificial sweeteners added.
