Devereaux, who is the new owner of a small-town gift basket/dime store and whose family and business histories have had brushes with the law, tries (along with the help of her two best friends and a possible love interest) to clear her name in the murder of her ex-boyfriend’s fiancée. This is the first in a new series. The mystery itself was okay, and it was certainly a very quick and easy read. I’ll be honest, though: I didn’t like any of the characters (especially the best friends) nearly as much as I wanted to. But, anyone who knows me knows that it takes a while for me to warm up to characters, which is why I often don’t start a series by reading its first book. I’ll continue to read the next few books in the series, hoping to warm to the characters. I just hope to goodness there are not any love triangles! (Btw, page 245 has a typo: Boone becomes Booth.)

Jill What? You don't think there will be a love triangle with the high school sweetie and the US Marshal? :)
