A Jane Larson Mystery
Five of five stars given [if i could have given more, I would have!]
In the midst of fighting an eviction from her office and her home, Jane is dealing with the amorous advances of a good-looking but too young member of her local Y. The moment he ducks into her store front office to avoid a process server, is when their lives become entangled. Next up is a case of lawyer fraud – another lawyer, not Jane, you understand. Before long that lawyer turns up dead, and his 18yo daughter wants Jane to prove he was murdered.
The Hicks’ have fashioned an intriguing tale here. Lots of truly wonderful characters – some you don’t like so much – their stories are fascinating and engrossing and, in some cases, amusing too. I laughed out loud. I cried into my sleeve. And I obsessively turned page after page. Jane reminds me of other sleuths I have loved – a bit of Kinsey, a touch of Plum, but with a difference too. I was pleasantly surprised by this book, I think you will be too!
I’m off in search of this series’ back list, I want to know more about Jane Larson; I hope her adventures keep coming!!!
