I very much enjoy this series. I always advocate for reading in order (I’m kind of compulsive), but the author does a skillful job of weaving events from the first book into this story, so readers won’t feel lost or left out if they start with this one. The Virginia setting is well-described, the dialogue tight, and the characters (even the minor ones) fleshed out. Stacie feels very real to me.
I am enjoying watching Stacie figure out who she is after losing herself in a marriage to a powerful, politically-connected family. I like her caring nature, her dogged determination to solve the puzzle, and her ability to connect with people in crisis. In book one, she was dating a police officer, but he was much more interested in being serious than she was, and in this book, they are trying to navigate the “friendship zone.” There’s some nice romantic tension with a board member who seems almost too good to be true, but who in the end is there when she needs him.
I finished this book in a couple of days – the plot was good, and the ending a surprise. This is a “clean” mystery in that the violence occurs off-screen, there’s no profanity, and while couples are getting busy, there isn’t an excessive amount of detail. Normally run the other way from “clean” mysteries because the plots bore me and I find the characters wooden. This series, however, is just good entertainment with likeable characters, interesting plots, and good writing.
I received an Advanced Reader Copy from the author, but I purchased my own as soon as it was published. I like Stacie and her friends, and I hope to see more books featuring them.
