Where to buy:
What I liked:
Aunt Martha. Oh my word, Aunt Martha was a blast. Always in trouble, never setting a great example–she was so much fun. Harold, Serena/Aunt Martha’s cat, was also a ton of fun. Authors can have such fun with cats. I also loved the word of the day and the way Sandra Orchard worked it into the story. 😀
What I didn’t like:
The “maybe” triangle. It wasn’t love; at least, not on Serena’s end. Um… I don’t think. I really couldn’t tell. First, Serena’s friends with one and partners with another, then she might like one, then the other… it was annoying. This is the reason I am giving it three stars instead of four.
Who I would recommend this to:
Mystery lovers, art lovers, and cat lovers. And anyone else who loves to read light hearted, but twisting stories.
