I saw this book at Second Story Bookstore in Dupont Circle last week. I decided to try it since the reviews were so positive on Amazon and it was published by Penguin. It started out strong and I loved the voice of widow Julia Springer. Unfortunately the plot was too big for the author and it became a bit far-fetched and zany toward the end. However, it is in the same genre as the Spellman series and Stephanie Plum, so if you are looking for a really light read give it a try.

Quick synopsis: Miss Julia finds out a lot about her dead husband, the upstanding Presbyterian pillar of their small town. Unfortunately he didn't exactly walk the talk. Turns out he left a child or as she puts it - his "last legacy." Everyone is out for her money and the minister wants to have her declared incompetent so he can get the money for his new building.
