it was amazing

Oh this is a fun, fabulous story a real page turner, and the start of a series woohoo, I think Rosie Hart is going to become a friend as she uses her sleuthing skills to solve murders and who knows what else, truly this is a story that I just about inhaled and I would suggest that you make sure you have nothing else to do when you pick this one up.

Rosie Hart has come to Airlie Falls Texas from Dallas to care for aging and ill Alice Auchinschloss, Alice is a loner and has no visitors or family, but Rosie gets on well with her and they often solve mysteries from the books they read, but when Alice passes away and Rosie is made her heir and then no one comes to her funeral, this has Rosie thinking, and then when the house is ransacked and the coroner discovers that Miz Alice was poisoned, Rosie is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery especially since she seems to be the prime suspect.

Rosie meets up with a handsome cowboy Jonah at the entrance to Alice’s place and this starts a real friendship with Jonah and his parents, Fiona and Clay they are all convinced that Rosie is innocent and when there are more murders and Rosie is also assaulted, things start to move, and there are a few octogenarians who are very willing to help uncover a mystery that started over fifty years ago.

Truly I loved this story, MS Delaney you had me laughing, smiling and cheering Rosie and The Fab Four on so many times and there are so many things happening I was guessing till the very end and as I said the start of new series what more could you want. This is a story that I highly recommend, I also look forward to seeing Rosie and Jonah move their relationship from friends to more, there are so many fabulous characters in this story it is a book you should not miss out on and I look forward to book two.
