5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Delightful, June 16, 2011
This review is from: Citizen Insane (A Barbara Marr Murder Mystery, Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I came to this book cold, without having read the beginning of the series, and I LOVED it.

Barbara Marr is the wife of a movie-style FBI officer. She's also a dedicated soccer mom and perhaps the most hilarious amateur sleuth in literature. When her annoyingly beautiful neighbor shows up turning in demented circles on her front lawn, Barbara knows she's in for trouble -- and she's right. Within pages, Barbara is entangled in a top secret FBI investigation; a local yearbook scandal; a ruthless band of bank robbers; and an ex-mafia thug trying to make amends... all while trying to win back her estranged-yet-irresistable husband and get the kids to bed on time.

Cantwell handles her characters with flair and pizazz. There's no doubt about it; this book is utterly implausible. But it's a dang enjoyable read, blending page-turning action with those little tender moments that get you right in the gut. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the main romantic interest was Barbara's own husband.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys silliness, suspense, romance, or all three combined.
