Good but could be better
I liked the storyline well enough, but the mother in the book made reading this story almost unbearable. She was terrible. Usually with a personality like that a character will have some redeeming qualities, something that makes them at least relatable, or they may have a change of heart throughout the story. Nope. Not this one. Just a rude, overbearing, judgmental, self righteous character with no development through the story. I cringed every time she appeared in the story, even in the moment she was supposed to be a “hero” because she didn’t act out of love for her daughter at all.
Murder At A Funeral
An interesting story with lots of different and unusual things going on. Meet Laurel Bay who has returned home to attend her father’s funeral. Now things get very interesting from that point on. Her father owned the funeral home and left his business to his daughter and the weird mother gets the house behind the business. Laurel’s mother is a bit of a religious nut and it carries over in all she does. So we have an excellent mystery with a ghost seeing Laurel and a mother who will not leave her alone and spend money like water. There’s lots of characters you will meet as you read this story so put on your sleuth hats and try not to laugh to much as you read this book!
