First Sentence: “My dear girl!”

Overall I liked this Maggie MacGowen mystery. I read #7 without reading the others first, so that may be part of it. There was a lot of characters to keep straight especially since every one and their dog was related in the story.
Strong entry in this revitalized series. Maggie is shocked to discover secrets from her past and a murder intervenes and puts her at risk. I loved the family dynamics interwoven w/ the mystery-solving.

I really enjoyed this book. I had trouble finding places I was willing to stop.

I can’t remember ever not knowing that I was a writer. When I was in the second grade, because I was forever writing little stories, my teacher, a lovely woman named Barbara Heath, gave me her own copy of Little Women, to keep. Hardcover, illustrated, no less. The story wasn’t so much magic for me as was the character of Jo March. Somehow I knew Jo, I pretended I was her sometimes, and knew I was...more
