As is usually the case, Sarah's husband is away on business three out of four weeks, and her son is seldom home after school. Sarah is alone at home in the evenings and she is tiring, both physically and mentally, of her massage job. Sarah finds the investigating job more challenging and exciting, especially when handsome Max shows up again. It's just what she needs to put a few sparks back in her life and lots of excitement, sometimes more than she can handle and more than Carter wants her to do.
Sarah Woods is fast becoming one of my favorite female sleuths. She's funny, down to earth, and isn't afraid to try something new. She might be afraid of going into a potentially dangerous situation, but she does it anyway to get the job done. And it's a good thing that Carter watches over her before she becomes too wreckless. This is a fast-paced mystery that is more the length of a novella. It kept my interest from the very beginning and I'm looking forward to the next installment in this series.
In this episode Sarah almost gets killed while working to solve the question whether or not a 'ladies man' was accidentally killed in a traffic accident or if it was something more sinister.
I look forward to finding out what Sarah will get up to next. I highly recommend.
What better challenge than to become a private eye. And, who better to learn from than Carter. The case begins with infidelity and ends with murder. Sarah is funny, likeable and irrepressible and best of all I like her.
Follow the clues with Sarah and see if you can guess the murderer.
I will not repeat the synopsis, choosing instead to say that this well-written, funny and intricately-plotted novel is excellent reading. The characters are likeable and effortlessly crafted, inviting me to care what happens to them and cheer for a successful outcome.
I am anxious to get to the next Sarah Woods adventure, and see whether she can weave her way out of her tangled life and solve a mystery as she goes.
