This is a fresh, well written, page turning adventure with heart warming moments and humor. I highly recommend The Marquesa's Necklace. .
What a fun read! Harmony Duprie, the main character, (and I absolutely love that name) leapt off the page with her intelligence and wry sense of humor. She's an independent woman who, for a living, does research for writers. The men in her life are quite unique. There's the mysterious "ghost" she encounters at the library, an amorous detective who has the distinction of once being her arresting officer, and a former lover, now in prison.
Despite that color, her life seems to be moving along rather smoothly, but then, out of the blue, someone blows up her car! From that point on you cannot put this book down. Full of quirky characters and unexpected twists and turns, this is one of the best of this genre I have read in a long time. MacLayne's writing is crisp and clean and I can't wait for another Harmony Duprie mystery to appear on my bookshelf. Highly recommended.
This book is fun, entertaining and highly recommended. Harmony and friends take you on an adventure in her small town, Oak Grove, PA which is both fun and interesting. Great job, P.J. I look forward to the next book in this series.
The characters are so well developed and are 'mysteries' in and of themselves adding an indescribable and unexpected charm to the story line.
Harmony Duprie, one time almost owner of the missing necklace, offers up delightful dialogue interspersed with cheeky humor. When asked, 'have you made any new enemies lately?' (when you read the book, you will learn that Harmony has a few in her not so distant past), she responds: "I think Larry, the florist, is ticked off that I'm not receiving flowers anymore. And Bart at the grocery story yelled at me last weekend when I went through the ten items or less line with fourteen items."
Ms. MacLayne recently released the sequel to this book, Her Ladyship's Ring (Oak Grove Mysteries Book 2), and I've already purchased it! I can't wait to see what Harmony DuPrie is up to next.
Kudos Ms. MacLayne!
I read this one straight through-it was really good--I have no idea where I saw this first but I am certainly glad I took a chance and bought it--now I have to go look into Book #2!!
