Another great book in this series about a plus-sizes paralegal who stumbles onto various murders and other mysteries, which she simply must solve, often with hilarious results. This book, the most recent in the series was excellent and unique, and features - gasp - a realistic heroine! I think Jaffarian has really hit her stride with this one and would highly recommend it.

This was the first book that I read by Sue Ann Jaffarian. I can't wait to read more. The character Odelia Grey is humorous, clever, and I love her antics!!
