This is a lesbian mystery set at the Dinah Shore Gold Tournament, so it does help if you’re interested in golf. The writing is straightforward and casual. The protagonist is charming, especially in dialogue, and the sex scenes are abundant and fun. The mystery itself is a little thin, so don’t read it as a puzzler, but as a chance to hang out with a cute, simpatico, somewhat irresistible dyke.
Having thoroughly enjoyed, Elizabeth Sim's first Lillian Bryd crime story, I bought the next three in the series. I wasn't disappointed. I read this one on a chilly raining day as I lay on the couch with a bad cold. Hot tea and a day with Lillian Byrd, fixed me right up. Sims knows how to maintain suspense and twist expectations and I just adore Byrd.
Fantastic. I devoured the whole series over the course of a few days.
Pretty predictable, but it was a pleasant fluffy read. It probably helps if you are interested in golf or rabbits, though.
