However, after reading two books in the series, I still I don't have a detailed image of the physical attributes of the main characters. For example, I am curious to know if Val is fat, since she seems to overeat. I know their hair color (and maybe eye color) and that Kit is thin and attractive, but that seems to be it.
The motivation of the main characters to solve the crime is more substantial in this book than the first, since the husband of one of them may be having an affair with the murdered woman. The strength of the authors is in building a multi-layered plot. Like the first book, there are lots of suspects and has an interesting twist at the end. However, like the first book, there are some unbelievable scenes of how the murder suspects talk so freely to prying invasive questions of the amateur sleuths.
Ultimately, the book is mindless and fun, like a sitcom. It works to offset a stressful day.
One thing I specifically want to point out is the character development. You can completely visualize the supporting actors (suspects?) so precisely that you do not waste time trying to recall details about the character. For example, in the last book I read, everytime one of the characters were mentioned, I either had to think really hard, or flip back in the book to try and remember what role they played in the story. Roz and Patty practically create an imprint in your mind of each character's looks/voice/mannerisms, etc... I think so far my favorite is the boss' nephew...would love a story centered around some mystery in HIS life! lol...
Well done again ladies. Absolutely cannot wait for book #3!
It will take you! Getting to know the characters is half the fun and knowing even at the end of story, you can look forward
to the next!

This is not a story full of blood and gore, but follows pretty normal, well-rounded characters through the progress of a murder case, developing their personalities and relationships, providing plenty of speculation as to whodunnit, and still surprising the reader at the end.
