Nora begins every day, and even in the middle of the day, with a detailed description of every outfit she is wearing from top to boots. She often sounds as if she stepped out of an L.L. Bean catalog. At times her color palette becomes somewhat redundant to the point of annoyance, but this is her schtick. She often literally, albeit comically, stumbles onto evidence causing severe pain to her knee or her shoulder or other parts of her body. She is greatly attracted to Sheriff Nick and he to her. But, he wants her to stay out of his case. Yet, she is the one who finds vital evidence, solves the case, and finds out who killed Buster. Her Aunt is right. She is an excellent detective, amateur or no.
As much as I enjoyed this book, I have criticism of some usage in this book. The contraction "it's" was used in this sentence when "its" should have been used: "Silver Stream with it's woods." The writer here is saying: Silver Stream with it is woods. This makes no sense. The sentence should have been written: Silver Stream with "its" woods. The writer also writes: I belong in the city with ...bulky "busses...." The plural of bus is "buses"; busses are kisses. In these two sentences the author writes: "It's a wonder the tree wasn't struck by lightening"; "Did lightening start the fire?" You may lighten up a somber mood to a jolly one, or you may lighten the color of the paint on your wall from somber grey to jolly red, but you may not strike "lightning" in the spoken or written word with the letter "e." Also the word "intact" was printed as two words. And "complement" was used to mean an expression of praise in one sentence. "Complement" means to complete something; "compliment" is an expression of praise. These errors read like those found in a sixth-grade composition; not something one would expect in a published work. They detract from the context, and are annoying to the eye. Amazon Verified Purchase.
So the second book picks up where the first book ends. Should Nora return to New York City or stay in Maine to finish some detective work for Vivian. Nora finds a dead body and is thrown in the center of the investigation. Nora is not a country girl so she does struggle with life in the woods of Maine. She is such a fun character and I love all of the mishaps that occur in the book. I also enjoyed Nora's aunts as they were such a great addition to the fun. Nick and Nora's romance move forward and add charm to the plot. Without spoiling the plot, I have to say that the incident with the tank is hysterically funny.
As much as I loved the first book, I love this book even more.
THIS IS LIKE A NICE BOWL OF ICE CREAM-ENJOYABLE.
