The Undertaker's Daughter by Sara Blaedel
"This was just not the book for me. There was no thrill, no suspense and the "mystery" wasn't really the focus of the story, it was just playing out in the background. I would say this is more of a mild drama, maybe even humor. I'm not sure if its..." Read more of this review »

"I received an advanced readers copy from Grand Central Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Ilka Jensen was a Dutch school photographer in Copenhagen when she was summoned to Racine, Wisconsin to deal with her newly deceased father's estat..." Read more of this review »
The Undertaker's Daughter by Sara Blaedel

Arggghh, if any of this is true it will make you so sad. I think anyone interested in recent history would do well to read this and understand where we are with greenhouse effects and climate change. We have probably waited too long to respond to the ...more
