Phillis A. Humphrey brings us another mystery with the determined Olivia Grant. Olivia is definitely a strong-willed woman and I'm so glad to see her interactions with her brother. Her attitude is definitely enjoyable to witness. I was looking forward to this story since reading the first and I have to say it was worth the wait. As a fan of cozy mysteries I thoroughly enjoyed this one as it had all the elements I enjoy, an interesting sleuth, engaging relationships and an interesting mystery. If you are looking for a solid cozy mystery this is a good choice.
Still reliving the high of solving her first mystery Olivia Grant decides her natural skills can help her brother with his Private Investigation firm in San Francisco. But things turn deadly for her when her best friend's husband is murdered. Now Olivia must clear her friend's name and avoid becoming the killer's next victim.
Olivia Grant may be once-widowed, once-divorced, chocolate-addicted, and directionally-challenged, but that doesn't mean she still can't have a little fun! Her activity of choice? Helping out in her brother's San Francisco P.I. business. (Though if you asked him, he might see it more as "meddling" than "helping.") But when Olivia's best friend is accused of murdering her husband, Olivia knows this is not just fun and games anymore. Charging into action, Olivia relies on her newfound P.I. know-how to round up a slew of suspects—even getting a bit too cozy with a certain handsome one—and vows to ferret out the truth. But when the danger finds its way to her own doorstep, can Olivia outwit a killer before she becomes the next victim?
