4.0 out of 5 stars Mandy faces competition Feb. 25 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Farley Mills has started a new discount dry cleaners which begins to undermine Mandy Dyer's business. Mandy doesn't mind fair competition, but Farley is passing out coupons to his establishment right on Mandy's doorstep. As Mandy is pondering what to do about it, Farley's body is found on the premises of Dyer's Cleaners. Mandy has an obvious motive and one which the police seize on immediately. In self-defense, she decides to start her own investigation. After some checking around, Mandy discovers that several of her employees have motives for the murder. One by one, she tries to investigate each of the suspects until she discovers the guilty party, only in time for her own life to be threatened. Johnson is a good writer and this second book is a good addition to the series.

After reading this book, I went out and got as many Mandy Dyermysteries as I could find. Characters are likeable and humorous, and theplot was intriguing. As a fan of Sue Grafton's style of realistic characters and interesting plot twists, I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.

I really enjoyed this second of the Mandy Dyer series & hope Dolores Johnson keeps writing more. Who knew there was so much going on at your local dry cleaners? Her books are funny-witty & a good read not to mention spot-less. This time we get to meet Mandys Mom & she is a hoot. Looking forward to the next installment.
