Second or third in a mystery series featuring Susan Wren, a small town police chief who succeeded to her position when the previous chief, her husband, was killed.

This one was readable, but not that good. The writing was kind choppy, the characters felt like stereotypes. It wasn't really awful though (except for a couple of scenes, like the unbelievable diary). If you're looking for a mystery, you could do worse.
I didn't read the first of the series because my library didn't own it. But I don't think it is necessary to read these in order. A very interesting mystery. Will read more in the series.
ill bk strong story with good plot a young woman comes to Hampstead KS to look for her birth mother and is foudn dead then the asst chancellor of local private college is missing
did not care for it as much as the first one which was novel for a murder mystery. Too many murders in this one
