Book Five in the Award-Winning Series Starring Unforgettable Amateur Sleuth Odelia Grey

What do you have to lose when you go searching for the mother who walked out of your life thirty-four years ago? I mean besides your pride, your nerves, and your sanity?

Odelia finds herself up to her ears in trouble when she reunites with her mom in a corn maze at the Autumn Fair in Holmsbury, Massachusetts. For starters, there's finding the dead body in the cornfield--and seeing her long-lost mom crouched beside the corpse with blood on her hands...

Another great book in this series about a plus-sizes paralegal who stumbles onto various murders and other mysteries, which she simply must solve, often with hilarious results. This book, the most recent in the series was excellent and unique, and features - gasp - a realistic heroine! I think Jaffarian has really hit her stride with this one and would highly recommend it.

This was the first book that I read by Sue Ann Jaffarian. I can't wait to read more. The character Odelia Grey is humorous, clever, and I love her antics!!
