George | 292 comments For one thing, this is a Copper Black mystery but not so marked in the title here.

For another, the other one with the same investigator, Getting Off on Frank Sinatra,, displays "(Copper Black Mystery #1)" but it is not formatted as a link.

For yet another, as noted in my review at, this seems to be Copper Black Mystery #0.5, not #2, despite the order of publication. I'm not sure if that can be accepted on my word alone, or whether the publisher and/or author can be contacted to verify, but nevertheless I make the claim.

Thank you.

Full Service Blonde is stated it is a prequel in the description, so I've numbered it #0, as it is a full novel of over 300 pages.

George | 292 comments Whooops! Read right over that!

Thank you; that works.

Marked as non-primary series element.

I think that's a bad idea, ma'am. It's as material to her whole arc as the other one is, in my opinion.

It's not a judgment on the book's relevance to the series. Prequels are always marked as non-primary series elements on Goodreads.

George | 292 comments Ah! Given that's the standard, thank you for following it. (Not that I like the standard, but since the best way of getting rid of a bad law is to enforce it strictly ...)
