Sarah’s back with Elvis and Charlotte’s Angels (her grandmother’s friends; this is the name they gave their detective agency that works out of Second Chance Shop). Rose, making an unapproved delivery to a house, stumbles upon what looks like a dead body being moved. Before she can be sure she’s hit on the head and wakes up a few houses down being cared for by a large black lab. What happened? And where’s the body?
There seems to be no sign of anything untoward and the police think that maybe this was a stroke. Leesa has proof on her cell that her husband was planning to leave her, and empty bank accounts. Seems like case closed, right? But Rose knows what she saw and she is far from feeble- the Angels will figure this out. With a few false starts and a lot of laughs, we follow the ladies and their compatriot Mr. P. through the twists and turns of investigating a murder that may never have happened.
The more I read this series the more I realize that this is just what I need. Sweet, well developed characters, and good clean fun. The characters love each other, even those that are at times overprotective. The series isn’t overly sexualized and there isn’t a lot of foul language like in other mystery genres- nor gore for shock’s sake. These are just really great, clean reads that are fantastic palate cleansers for after I finish a harsher book- or any time really.
Nick is still being stubborn about the whole detective agency thing- let’s be honest, I wouldn’t be thrilled with one of my elderly relatives getting caught up in murder investigations either. When he hears about everything that happened to his mom’s friend, he immediately wants her to go to the hospital and get every test imaginable done. No body, no sign of struggle… just an old woman he cares about on the ground outside. Sarah’s worried too, but she knows better than to push. She stays close to the girls and tries as always to lessen danger. I love her for that. I love that these characters try to hard to support one another even when they firmly believe they’re off their rockers. Sarah and Nick’s relationship is still going slower than a sloth in a marathon race- it hasn’t really even started. There have been a kiss or two…. but that’s it. Even she is starting to wonder why she isn’t more serious. I have hopes for our other contender (team Mac all the way!). There haven’t been any real overtures, but I know these guys are perfect for one another. For me, this is a five star book.
On the adult content scale, there really isn’t any. Some violence (this is a murder mystery after all) but mild. I would definitely give this series to my niece without qualm. I give it a two tops.
Telling Tails has a different start than the previous 3 books, the "incident" has already occurred and we learned the details as Rose remembered the event herself. But it works, and this was a quick read. The characters continue to develop, and I especially appreciated that Sarah isn't staying stagnant with the 2 men she seems to be deciding between. There is movement with that situation, subtle but well done.
as always, I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
