I had been awaiting this novel since I finished number six. It was certainly worth the wait. First off I noticed that I remembered the characters and their relationship without any effort. This latest book moves forward in time and still easily kept me connected to events in the past.

Sleuth, Odelia Grey is trying to cope with the changes and competition that occur when two corporations merge. Although promises were made to the employees of the older firm, fondly known as 'Woobie.' Odelia quickly learns that her job is in jeopardy. Also, her direct boss, Erica is not a nice person and is trying to swing the law partners into laying off Odelia.

So, it is with some shock, yet not total shock, that Odelia learns Boss Erica has saddled her with Erica's sister's daughter, three-year old, Lily. I must admit this stretched my imagination a bit. However, Erica had papers authorizing Odelia guardianship and if Odelia accepted the charge, then?

Erica leaves the office without any word or message so Odelia has to take the little girl home for the weekend. Nosy Odelia smells that something is up. So, being impetuous, she goes to Erica's home to see if she is hiding there for some odd reason...instead Odelia finds Lily's mother's body.

The police are not happy nor is Odelia's husband, Greg, nor is anyone else. Odelia finds herself in something that is very nasty and is leading to her own demise.

Ms. Jaffarian has not lost her touch of drama and solid relationships. I finished the book with a strong hope to see novel number eight in this series.

This is the latest in a wonderful mystery series and the best yet! Odelia Grey is someone we'd all like to know in real life, and, as this story starts off, she's having a hard time at work. The law firm where she works has undergone more change than endurable, and it feels like the last straw when her boss callously disrespects her and takes advantage of her. Odelia is flabbergasted when the woman who is her boss demands that Odelia take care of the woman's niece. The little girl is only 3 and shows signs of neglect. Odelia has a big heart and, even though the little girl is a burden at first (Odelia must watch after her while still tending to her work duties), Odelia soon grows fond of her. Odelia's relationship with the little girl is a big part of this story and very endearing. Awkward at first, Odelia gradually, and often comically, figures out how to look after this sweet little girl.

Another element of the story is a new employee at the law firm who becomes Odelia's rival. This guy comes on as "the cocky competitor" causing Odelia anxiety over her job and eventually suspicion as the mystery progresses. But what I love about Odelia is that she never lets anyone get under her skin. She is always lots of fun but also kind of tough. She makes the best of life.

A recent merger has put Odelia’s job on the line. Her former boss, Mike Steele, has moved on to another firm and her new boss is making Odelia’s work life miserable. Odelia reaches her breaking point when Erica Mayfield pulls a disappearing act after leaving Odelia in charge of her three year old niece. Fuming, Odelia sets out to find the little girl’s mother and winds up (once again!) in the middle of a murder investigation.

If I had to pick just one reason why I enjoy this series so much, it would be that I admire the author’s willingness to color outside the lines when it comes to characterization. In a culture that glorifies youth and single digit dress sizes (preferably no larger than a size 6!), Odelia is unapologetically plus-sized and middle aged. When the series started out she was happily single, but along the way she met the love of her life, Greg. Greg is a paraplegic, and guess what? – It’s not treated like a big deal. He’s an attractive, accomplished man that happens to use a wheelchair. Check out this line from page 37:

“People see the wheelchair and immediately think “disabled”. Trust me, there is nothing disabled about Greg Stevens. His legs just don’t work.”

It’s just so refreshing to read about characters that aren’t Barbie and Ken clones! Oh, and let’s not forget that Odelia and Greg are a happily married couple that are child free by choice – how often do you see that? I really wish that there were more stories out there with characters that don’t fit the usual stereotypes. I can dream, can’t I?

Now back to “Hide & Snoop”. The mystery is well thought out and there are plenty of side stories that held my interest. As always the writing is solid and infused with warmth and humor.

Once again, Sue Ann Jaffarian has mastered the art of a story that a person wants to keep reading to see how the story progresses and finishes. She immediately grabs your interest and makes you feel like you know all of her characters personally. I especially appreciate Odelia, since she and I are both slightly overweight paralegals working in a law firm; but I also enjoy the Granny Apples series, as well as the Madison Rose Vampire series. The only problem is, once you are done with one of her books, it's difficult to wait for the next installment! I highly recommend reading any of Ms. Jaffarian's books - you will not be disappointed.
