This is a very sweet touching story, when it all comes down to it. Yes, there are improbabilities, but the unfolding had my full attention.

Don't let the slow beginning discourage you! Fairly nice writing, likable characters, solid plot.

A captivating read with many details scattered in to show the way towards the finale. Some parts were easy to predict, but the growth and attitudes of the characters were well done.

Nicely twisting.

This was a fun mystery with a touch of romance, but you don't want to look too closely or you'll spot the plot holes.
