This was a great read. I love murder mysteries. I actually read book 15 for a book club awhile back so now I’m going back and reading the first books of the series. The beginning books show the budding romance which is the best part. I loved how Benni and Gabe drove each other crazy at the beginning.
Benni was 34 years old and a 9 month widow. She had been married to her late husband for 15 years. This book goes into the heart ache and loneliness that comes with that life changing event. Every day memories of her and her husband broke my heart.
There were times during the murder solving parts where I was like “Use You Cell Phone!” but then I remembered this was written in the early 90s when cell phones weren’t as prevalent. Hahaha. Just keep that in mind.
This was a fun mystery! At times it felt a little slow, but the plot and characters kept me entertained.
