A Real Basket Case by Beth Groundwater is a fun cozy with a likable heroine-an empty nester coping with bitter friends, a workaholic husband and a hobby-cum-business of basket weaving that doesn't quite fill her life. When her gym/workout instructor is murdered while giving her a massage in her home and her husband is chief suspect, Claire Hanover has to come to terms with herself, her marriage while tracking down a murderer.

The plot is clever and the characters and their relationships engaging. Claire occasionally irritated me with her helpless innocence but on the whole I empathized with her situation and liked her and her choices.

I strongly recommend this read for those of us who love cozies!
