A Really Enjoyable Story!
I really enjoyed this story.
Interesting murder mystery
A murder mystery that keeps you guessing to the end. Surprise ending, not who you would expect. No graphic violence, lurid sex scenes or foul language. Any mystery buff would enjoying this book.
The book caught my attention from the beginning. This “nosy” cleaning lady finds more clues than the police and is always getting her in trouble with them.
