Although this is number two in a charming mystery series set in 1920's Pasadena, it is not particularly a mystery itself. Packaged as a romance, it's not really a romance, either.

Another Daisy Gum Majesty down the hatch! These books are just a fun, light read but also very interesting. I do enjoy the descriptions of just about everything, from the frustration of the old Model T and Brown the horse who doesn't want to always go to the very real problems of living with a spouse in constant pain. But her attitude is always very upbeat.
