Vultures at Twilight (A Lillian and Ada Mystery) Hardcover – May 1, 2012
Top Customer Reviews
If you like mysteries, this is a very good one because we have the main mystery (who/why is killing all the antique dealers) but several others are introduced as well and some may be resolved and some may not be...This is more than just the story of two women trying to solve a mystery, it deals with current life issues such as sexuality, loss of a loved one, and helping elderly parents, to name a few. An enjoyable and thought provoking book!
Lil, Lillian Campbell, was born, raised, wedded, widowed, and raised two girls who no longer live in Grenville, Connecticut. We see most of this story through her eyes, her heart, and her sense of place. She has a great deal more feeling for her best friend Ada, which comes from hidden sensitivities and remembered attractions towards women. However, that was not to be considered or pursued and she had loving feelings toward her husband plus very strong feelings towards her town and community, which has comforted her for decades.
Ada Strauss moved with her husband to Glenville's Pilgrim's Progress gated community for the fairly well off. Lil is a next-door neighbor and they have become very close friends. These are our two amateur sleuths who assist the state police investigator Detective Mattie Perez from the homicide division since a rash of murders have recently plagued sleepy, quiet Glenville.
Ada is Jewish and Lil is Episcopalian but they go to each other's services because they are such good friends and it has become part of their weekly activities. We share Lil's growing awareness that she feels a good deal more for Ada than just friendship. Yet, it is Ada who kisses Lil first at a really appropriate moment with a heart-felt `I've wanted to do that for a long time' that was just perfectly magnificent.Read more ›
