This is a phenomenal book with a lot of twists and turns that kept me glued to the pages. I love how Charlie and Marian are so in love and have a strong relationship and bond that no matter what they go through, they are always there for each other. The characters in this book are multidimensional, and it was wonderful figuring out the reasons they do what they do. I had my suspicions on who may have been the murderer, but I didn't know who it was until the culprit was revealed. M. A. Edwards re ...more

Mystery within mysteries.

Once gain it's happened, Ms. Edwards has written another gem!

The characters are given strong backgrounds through well thought-out descriptions and this reader could clearly see them in my mind.

This mystery has the promised twists and turns which I believed allow me to solve the case early on; I was so wrong every time. Drats!

I highly recommend this book.

Murder mystery at its finest

I love reading Ms. Edwards mysteries. They are clean mysterious who done its. These books prove you don't have to have erotic scene in every chapter to make a Great Read. It is so Refreshing to be able to read a great mystery without everything else taking from the story. Once again I didn't know for sure until the end. Thank you Mary Anne, can't wait for the next.

This is a fantastic Mystery. My favorite in this series so far. There are tons of suspects plus everyone's favorite couple in the center of it all. I highly recommend this series. This can be read as a standalone but i recommend the entire series. There is a heart in the middle of these mysteries that makes them very special. ...more
