Quite enjoyable, maybe even better than the first of this series.

Recommends it for: fans of Maine and mystery and Sharon Lee
I really loved that the focus of this book was on Jennifer finally making more connections - of her own volition and not just thrust upon her - within the community of Wimsy and of course with Fox. I also loved the fact that this is not a romance - the time frame would make that much too cliché. I missed Marian here, but there was a lot more about the other inhabitants of Wimsy.

Actually I could have done without the mystery altogether, it's just such a lovely slice of life of a person growing m

Recommended to Li by: Liked the first book Barnburner
I'm still loving the "retro-ness" of this mystery series.

What surprised me with this book is that the mystery sneaks up on you, unlike the first one Barnburner, where the resolution snuck up on me.

I would really like more in this series - I would totally love to see the relationship between Jennifer and Fox develop. There is so much potential there...

I'm really enjoying the Jennifer Pierce adventures. I like the setting (small town Maine), the characters, and the narrative style. Set in the mid-1980's there is a lot of historic technical charm as a lot of the action is based around the then current computer technology. That part seems very quaint and nostalgic. I really enjoyed this novella length story.

Cozy Mystery

In this sequel to Barnburner, Jennifer and Fox are stunned by the death of one of the members of their online bulletin board. They can't accept the police suggestion of suicide by gun as she couldn't abide guns.
The characters are likeable and the ending was not easy for me to figure out. This book is about life in a small town in Maine. The mystery plot is almost incidental.
The books in this series were full of the latest tech do-das back when originally written. They are now quaint

This was great!
I cannot wait to read more of this very down to earth, devoid of fluff, sit down and absorb myself type reading! Thanks Mrs. Lee for another unforgettable character with charm that speaks to what is real in the world!
P.S. Cannot wait for more from these characters!

Follow on to Barnburner is a good read, indeed. Clever mystery, nice atmosphere, well developed characters. A nice way to spend an hour or so.
