It has been 7 months since Richard and Laura have given birth to their daughter Alice, but they are still basking in the afterglow and are acting like typical doting parents. Laura has no intention of leaving her Boston home and going to visit her relatives in her hometown of Byerly. However, when she gets a call saying that Aunt Margie eloped with the town's wealthiest citizen Big Bill Walters, The Flemings hightail it to Byerly as fast as they can. When they arrive, Maggie tells them that ther ...more

This is the final book in the Laura Fleming series, and I'm kind of sad it's over, but at the same time, I think it was probably time. Pretty much every character who's ever been in this series EVER shows up in this book, and it's a little overwhelming for me. The mystery involved characters I didn't really care about, and I didn't have any idea who did it until the end, but not in a good way. I didn't suspect anyone because I figured the answer would kind of come out of left field, and it did. ...more

This is the eighth book in the series and the first one I have ever read. There are a lot of funny parts but I missed about 30 of the previous book referenecs that the author mentions (and has a footnote referring to previous books..yah) so I probably missed some of the other humor. No real plot twists really or suspense. As usual with some mystery authors, the bad guy is someone barely mentioned during the whole book so as a reader you would not be able to "solve" the mystery. Not sure if I wou ...more

Laura Fleming returns to her home in Byerly, NC, where her feisty great-aunt Maggie has surprisingly married the riches t man in town. Big Bill Walters and Maggie confide in Laura and husband Richard that they got married so Maggie could help Big Bill t rack down the person who's trying to kill him. Leaving her new baby Alice with a series of adoring relatives, Laura tries to t rack down the many enemies that Bill has made--enemies that may include members of his own family.

The last of the Laura Fleming books. I compare them to the Nancy Drew books only for adults. Fast easy read before I go to bed.

It was OK, I didn't quite like all the plugs for her other books. (There were a LOT. Like more than 5-6. It was a bit weird.)
