I love Charlotte MacLeod and her style of writing. The Peter Shandy mystery series is funny, always surprising and a total joy to read. Her characters are full, real and interesting as their lives play out in the story in ways you never dreamed could happen. I read this series as I waited in the pickup line at my kid’s school. I can't tell you how many times other parents would come up and ask me what I was reading that was so funny I was laughing out loud or so engrossing that I didn't notice school was out and the line was moving. If you love an old fashioned mystery with great characters and many plot twists--this book and series are for you. You’ll be so glad you got this book!
