Donna Andrews' SWAN FOR THE MONEY is a funny delight, especially after several weeks of heavy reading. Meg Langslow agrees to help her parents by organizing the annual rose show. Meg knows very little about roses or the cut throat competition which governs these affairs, but she is about to learn in spades. The hostess of the club's show has an obsession with the color scheme of black and white and the balance must be perfect. Did wonder where she kept the Hampshire hogs, which a friend of mine had raised along with his Belted Galloway cattle. But the animals blended perfectly with the story. Philomena Winkleson is determined to win the top prize and works diligently to forestall all of her competition. From page one to the last there is murder, envy, mayhem, and laugh out-loud chuckles for this entertaining humorous cozy. Nash Black, author of Indie finalists WRITING AS A SMALL BUSINESS and HAINTS.
