Jewels in the Juniper
Doreen is a work in progress. A divorce eminent and former trophy wife, she is finding herself and becoming a better granddaughter. And finding yet another cold case. This is a mystery series for all ages. Jewels in the Juniper is a standalone book but so much more fun when read in order (watching Doreen evolve from the ashes of her previous life). Meanwhile, a friendship is gently evolving into something more? Absolutely love the team of animals (Mugs the basset hound, Goliath the Maine cat, and Thadeus the parrot) that protect, inspire and push Doreen in her journey.A fun book. A thoughtful book (and a book where you want to give a high five to Doreen).
