Hi Susan!

As a reader, I always like to read a series in order. I like to feel as though I'm experiencing things as the characters do, chronologically. That said, each Liz Talbot Mystery can be read as a standalone. There are certain things you will have more insight into if you read in order, but it isn't necessary to follow the story, and you won't be lost if you decide to start with book two or three. I hope this helps!

My best,

“Colleen appeared on the loveseat. “Stay.” “I’m staying, all right?” I leaned forward. “Would you please find Gram? Find out what happened.” Colleen turned transparent. “Can’t.” Her voice echoed. “Why are you here if you can’t help?” I shouted. “Merry.” The whisper was so loud it filled the room. “What”
