"...funny, a page turner, and very unpredictable.... The plot and the vivid descriptions of the town and characters, give readers a warm, cozy feeling. If you think at any time during the reading that you know 'who did it,' you are in for a big surprise."
--Carol Hoyer for Reader Views
"This story has a great vibe to it and fits the cozy mystery category perfectly. It starts off with a doozie of a murder to solve, but as Nora investigates, juicier small-town secrets come to light, making it much more than just that. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the twists in the story, some I did not even see coming. All of the characters were well-developed and each added their own touch to the story."

"The first in Trent's series set in Piney Woods, and it bodes well for the series. As cozies go, this is not only a fun read, but it moves along quite well. She has a respectable number of characters--not so many as to confuse the reader but enough to have a growing number of possible perpetrators! This is a keeper."
--Judith Reveal for the New York Journal of Books
"A delightful cozy romp!"
--Maggie Toussaint, author of the Dreamwalker mystery series
"Teresa Trent's recipe for an outstanding cozy mystery: A mother's dying wish. A mysterious letter. A dutiful daughter who shows up on the doorstep of the nicest man in town. A guy who suddenly turns up dead. Mixed well with small town Texas charm and a fabulous eye for detail."
--Joanna Campbell Slan, author of the Kiki Lowenstein Mystery Series
