Picked up this cozy mystery, first published back in 1997. It was interesting to me that there were so few reviews for it on Goodreads, only 18. Seems to be a series that has been passed over. There are five books total in the series.

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

The mystery is a bit convoluted but the characters are interesting and have some potential for future stories. I do especially love the narrator, Stella Stargazer an astrological advice columnist formerly known as Jane Smith an accountant.
