Good entry in the series. Loved the gathering of the suspects at the end.

This is one of the better books in the series, and it reminded me of why I enjoyed reading this series to begin with. Susan gets away from her wimpy behavior in this book and takes charge of investigating this case. With several possible suspects and plenty of motive to go around, this makes for a solidly good mystery. Plenty of small town charm as well.
