Odelia and her mother, who is visiting from New Hampshire, try to forge a bond in their unstable relationship over the Thanksgiving holidays. What better way to find a common ground than to join forces and poke their noses where they don't belong - into a murder investigation. The mother-daughter duo teams up with Odelia's husband, Greg, when his cousin is considered the prime suspect in her husband's murder. Delightful mystery, lots of potential suspects, and the thrill of a chase are woven throughout the story. The characters are quite likeable with flaws the average person can relate to.

Sue Ann Jaffarian is a wonderful writer and her Odelia Grey series is addictive. I can hardly wait for the next installment! They just keep getting better and better!
