Let's face it, strange noises at a long-abandoned house right next to you would make anybody curious, especially since it was known in the community as the "House of Many Bones." Then, if the monkeys had not come climbing into the trees surrounding her home, the main character probably would never have even gotten involved...
So Barbara did go out when she heard somebody next door, hearing a door slam and somebody calling out to another individual who was somewhere out in the yard. And later... Barbara got her friends interested enough after finding the monkeys still in her trees, that she convinced them to go with her to try to see inside the vacant building. Finding a cellar window open, they were able to hold Barbara back, while she stuck her head into the window...where she saw the skull...
Ok, we've got a murder mystery... Plainly Barbara is worried, but she's already upset because her husband announced he was leaving, without discussion or reason... Barbara is near her birthday and is obviously thinking her husband has found another woman. By design, or not, she calls an "ex" and before long he shows up and pushes her enough that he moves in, while he's helping finding out what is happening... Barbara's husband, Howard, is NOT happy to find him there...
Seriously, I don't know what drives some women to want to know everything, but sometimes it leads to further misunderstanding, especially when she sees her husband and her ex talking and then driving away together... But about that time, I was totally in support of Barbara. Don't you just hate it when somebody says something like you don't need to know--it's for your own good? Hey, I'm right there, Barb...let's get this mystery solved! Sometimes a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do...💔 If I'm going to get a broken heart out of this...I want to know allll the details! LOL Hey, it's really fun...
One of the best things about the book was the humor. I laughed out loud more than once.
Will definitely look for more from her.
If you want to purchase the paperback version I think you should know that the type in the book is very small. I would estimate it at about a 10 point font, if you are familiar with that method of sizing. The lines are quite closely spaced. I think this is a necessary piece of information for some buyers. I LOVED the story and the personality the author (Karen Cantwell) gave the main character (Barbara Marr) and the humor it contained - so I gave this review 5 stars. I don't think what I have to say should "hurt" the rating of the book.) I wanted to gift the book to a friend, who prefers old-fashioned non-electronic books. She is in her 80s and although she doesn't require LARGE print - (she does well with what I would call "normal" size type in most paperbacks - about 12 point with a bit of white between the lines) this print was much too small and too tight for her to comfortablly and easily read. I just thought this was a point that should be made clear before someone purchases.
All of a sudden, you have the mob-type individuals making threats and you're wondering what's going on. You and your husband are separated, so you call a mutual friend who happens to be a private investigator in California. He shows up and things become even more tense because he and your estranged husband are also causing tensions.
You will find yourself smiling and chuckling throughout the story as the mystery winds down to it's final conclusion. There are surprising events that happen between the characters, and I feel you will have a fun time working through this book
