A great little mystery following the exploits of a female African American P.I. Good plot and very realistic characters.

This is the first book I've read by Valerie Wilson Wesley; I'd gotten it from my mom, and I wasn't that intrigued by the cover. Finally I'd come across it again and decided to at least read the first chapter, which lead to the second, the third, and then I was finished. It was a fast, mysterious read, and I mostly liked it! All of the mystery, the suspects, the mother in her, as well as the secret love she held in her heart, however I didn't love the ending! I was shock

As a Jersey girl who grew up in Essex County I enjoy the Tamara Hayle series. They're always a fast, enjoyable read with an unexpected twist or two along the way. It's not Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but with this series you know what you're going to get and Valerie Wilson Wesley consistently delivers. It's not deep but good entertainment.
