I hadn’t read any of the other books but was still able to follow along fine, it is truly a stand alone book. I truly enjoyed the quirky humor mixed with suspense. The characters are well developed and likable. The seniors had me cracking up especially when Margie pulled out the liqueur candies. I found myself quickly pulled into the story and trying to figure out who the killer is and what were he/she looking for. The story line is interesting, compelling and filled with surprises. I definitely will take the time to read the other books because I love a good mystery story. Overall good read for anyone who loves a cozy mystery filled with suspense and humor.
