First book in the popular, bestselling Barbara Marr Murder Mystery Series.
Film lover Barbara Marr is a typical suburban mom living the typical suburban life in her sleepy little town of Rustic Woods, Virginia. Typical, that is until she sets out to find the missing link between a bizarre monkey sighting in her yard and the bone chilling middle-of-the-night fright fest at the strangely vacant house next door. When Barb talks her two friends into some seemingly innocent Charlie’s Angels-like sleuthing, they stumble upon way more than they bargained for and uncover a piece of neighborhood history that certain people would kill to keep on the cutting room floor.

237 pages of laugh-out-loud fun.

Great plot, great characters, great fun – well worth your time getting to know this author

If you like larks and have a keen sense of humour then this is a great book for you. It’s original, it has great characters, the dialogue is sparse but honest and it’s true to life. It’s a lark, a crazy, mixed-up throwback to the days when hoods were hoods and the body-count stayed low. In fact, I don’t think anyone dies in this one. Hospitalised yes, dead no. I started off not expecting too much, it was a freebie after all, but by the middle I was hooked, to such an extent that the second half was read in a single sitting. I shall be buying (yes, parting with cash) more from this lady, a new name but definitely looks like one well worth following.

Gripped from the start..

This started off differently from the usual crime book, but it entertained me from the start and kept me reading. I don’t usually review the books I read, but felt compelled with this one as it was so good..
