Quite a spread of styles and subjects! Can't wait to get started!(less)

Yet I can't imagine how anyone could make them a plot for a book! They're not too thrilling. Such as: what made me choose to leave New York and come to Canada for my university education? It changed my life for the better, and things might have been very different had I not done that. It would take a very inventive writer to turn it into a suspenseful, mysterious story!(less)

This book is delightful. It's the first Robin Macfarland mystery that I've read, and I recommend it both as an escape from all the bad news and an immersion into other kinds of...bad news. No, it's not heavy in any way, and in fact, it's quite funny ...more
