“This first book in the series is both outrageously funny and addictive. Jessica and her friends are very realistically written and will keep you in both suspense and rolling on the floor with laughter! I love how the descriptions of the valley and the cities in it, bring the area to life. The writing is smooth flowing and very descriptive. I loved how intricate the murder plot was. It kept your attention and didn't let go until the final page. I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who loves a fascinating adventure, wild and wacky characters and nonstop action. Suitable for both mystery and cozy mystery fans!” Doward Wilson–Amazon Customer
