    This is the second book I've read. While the first one was better, this one is decent. You can't beat the price and it will easily pass and afternoon and evening, or even a couple of days. The plot is a little convoluted. It's one of those stories where you think, why would these people go through all this trouble. Edna's there to help her DIL, her son, and her grandchild while her DIL is in her last month of a difficult pregnancy; yet she keeps leaving to "investigate." That sort of irked me...she'd find a babysitter...but I just couldn't get over thinking she shirked her duties quite a bit in this book. That just sort of "ruined" some of the book for me. Some of the plot line was just not plausible and required a fair amount of "buying in" to the story line. And no one can seem to keep their hands on their cell phone, or keep them charged...what's up with that? Just not as good as the first book.

    The book is an enjoyable read. It is, however a very light mystery. Edna is a little old lady who loves to solve mysteries and gets into all kinds of trouble. I didn’t understand the relationship between Edna and her husband. One minute he is the love of her life, and the next, she is keeping secrets and avoiding him. It was entertaining, but not a book that you couldn’t put down for a bit and run a few errands. So I would say, if you want something very light that you don’t have to pay attention to every detail, this is the perfect book.

    I loved reading this book. I was on the last page and didn't want to be there. Can't wait to read more by this author.

    My first read of author Suzanne Young, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It includes several interesting characters and a good plot. The ending is heart-racing and also a surprise. One can tell, if you know the greater Denver area, that Ms. Young has spent many years there, and builds her book around streets and areas accurately. Fun Read.

    If Edna Davies were my neighbour, I would be happy to follow her around for some surprising adventures. She appeals to those of us "of a certain age" who aren't settled into knitting in the parlor but finding ways to engage in the world, helping outwit the lawless and finding friendships in unlikely places. What is more, the plot unfolds with believable strings of events and the outcomes are not so obvious we're leaping ahead of the narrative. Edna is a treat and I love the way husband Arthur never gets into the picture to spoil things! If he only knew... A fun read.

    An interesting concept of a woman in her sixties with a large family that allows her to relate easily to everyone around her. The plot was a little thin but didn't lack for suspects. This author is easy to read and will be an enjoyable diversion while soaking up the sun.

    Good yarn. Bad guys turned out to be a surprise, and it is a fun read. I like Ms. Young 's books -they hold the attention &have a great surprise factor.

    Edna is a comfortable read. She is a senior with husband (usually otherwise busy) and children.Now she is helping a new daughter-in-law. She is in a strange city, her son is busy working and she steps into a missing person mystery. It is entertaining following her as she makes her way.Shirley Ann
