Of course the requisite murder quickly draws Gladie and the reader into a Cozy Mystery filled with plot twists and interesting characters. Even though Randy Terns’ death isn’t initially classified as murder, things just don’t seem right. The Terns family is definitely odd, and possibly evil, so Gladie is intrigued. Even though the good looking police chief advises her to stay away, she is bound and determined to figure out the truth.
Sax does a good job bringing humor into her mystery as she mixes a little romance in with the action. I loved Grandma Zelda and found her advice at the beginning of each chapter charming. Her personality and relationship with her stretch-pants wearing granddaughter doesn’t always match her Jimmy Choo shoes, but that is what makes this story charming.
At times I found Gladie acted a bit more clueless than I would have expected, but on the whole I thought she was an interesting character for this genre of book. The author did a good job on the mystery part too, throwing in clues that were meaningless along with those that led the way to a satisfying conclusion.
