My first—and last—response to this book is that it was made for TV. Although the main characters are lesbians in their mid-thirties, they act more like elderly busybodies. Think Golden Girls. Some of the entrances and exits read like stage directions, their conversation is aimed at the lowest common denominator of boob-tube watchers and some of the repartee begs for canned laughter. Now I’m not saying that this wouldn’t be a good episode of Golden Girls, I’m just suggesting that it is only an av ...more

I received a copy of this book from Inked Rainbow Reads in return for an honest review.
I enjoyed this book, even though I'm not sure I like Diega. I'm once again forced to admit that mystery is not my genre. And sure enough, I felt like I stumbled along with Diega in her investigations, trying to puzzle out who-dunnit and getting shot down every chapter or so. Jenny's secret wasn't much of a surprise to me, since I was paying attention earlier in the book. I was more distressed by the fact that

Diega DelValle is a teacher who finds herself in a whole load of trouble when her ex lover, Sheila, a news anchor, is found murdered. When the police seem intent on pinning the killing on her, Diega and her group of gal pals set about solving the case for themselves. There are a lot of twists and turns in this mystery and plenty of red herrings to keep the reader engrossed. A cast of characters with connections going back years and some surprising revelations make it a great read and I didn’t wa ...more
