While not usually a big deal, one overlooked email would haunt teacher Gilda Greco. Had she read it, former student Sarah McHenry might still be alive.

Suspecting foul play, Constable Leo Mulligan plays on Gilda’s guilt and persuades her to participate in a séance facilitated by one of Canada’s best-known psychics. Six former students also agree to participate. At first

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Former teacher Gilda Greco is drawn back into the past when one of her former students dies. Was it an accident or was it murder?

Constable Leo Mulligan has persuaded Gilda to return to Parry Sound and reunite with some of her former students and participate in a séance to try to get clarity about the young woman’s death. The first séance ends abruptly and they try again and again. Each time the level of true cooperation diminishes but Gilda gets to see the truth about who her

Recommended! This is a cozy, but a cozy for grown-ups. It's got a tight mystery plot and Joanne Guidoccio skillfully sprinkles the clues as the tension builds, and the reveal is as good as any I've read...the vilain is right under your eyes all along, hidden in plain sight. Because the story cycles back between present and past, to Gilda's days as a high school teacher, there's a fair bit to keep in mind as you read. Also the reader has to keep track of a large cast of suspects but the author's ...more

I love tucking into a good cozy, and this one is great. The plot is well-crafted, the characters are fully developed and the story is filled with suspense. Do you ever really know the people around you? It makes you wonder.
Retired teacher Gilda Greco is pulled into a murder mystery when one of her former students emails her for help. What really gets Gilda, and the reader, is the guilt she feels for not seeing the email right away. By the time she reads it, the woman is dead. Haven’t we all

Cozy mysteries are new to me. I am finding that I really like them. This was a fun story that deals with a teacher that had only had the chance to teach a group of students for a short time yet she made a very big impact on their lives.

Years have passed and one of the classmates was murdered with Gilda feeling a bit guilty because she missed an email from the recently deceased. Ms. Guidoccio took us

Review: A DIFFERENT KIND OF REUNION

Here's a "different kind" of cozy mystery. With a lot of suspense and tension, a lot of memory strolls, and the addition of an intriguing paranormal element, this mystery stands out. Our protagonist, Gilda, strongly but not too fondly remembers her seven months of teaching eight grade in Parry Sound, Ontario, a closely knit and sports-oriented community. Called back after the inexplicable demise of a student she taught two decades earlier, Gilda finds herself

This is a cozy mystery at its best. It will make you want to cuddle up for a while and get lost in the story and world Joanne Guidoccio has created.

Gilda is such a fun main character, I feel like I connected with her right off the bat and that really helped me get invested in the story.

Psychics are something that I think everyone knows about, but has never really thought twice about. I liked the insight we got into that. Senace's and so much more.

Don't miss this Mystery!

Another winner of tale from Joanne Guidoccio, one of my favorite authors. Gilda Greco is back, and this time the case she needs to solve is personal. If she'd only read the email from Sarah McHenry...

I love If only stories!!! and this one is one of the best I've read in a long, long time.
Kudos and 5 stars to this delightful character and her author.

While still a 2019 Arthur Ellis nominee this book made a nice change of pace after reading Rick Mofina’s latest “Missing Daughter”. I like this series very much and I enjoyed this one although it doesn’t have quite as much of the humour found on the earlier books in the series. That’s probably because Gilda’s mother and wacky aunts are all away and not involved but Gilda’s godmother Maria Rossi and Rosa Geraldi, Maria’s sister, manage to get in the picture to help lighten things up a bit. ...more
InD'tale Magazine
3.5/5.0

A compelling murder mystery with characters one can’t help but adore and a storyline that sets the reader’s fingers on fire trying to get to the next page fast enough.

Read full review in the 2018 June issue of InD'tale Magazine.
