Filled with a fast-paced twisty turning plot and well-defined characters who make it such a pleasure to read. --Midwest Book Review
This is like having five Miss Marple’s or Jessica Fletcher’s poking their noses into other people’s business... the author does a nice job of humanizing her elderly sleuths — almost all of whom still are actively engaged in learning more about themselves and the world around them. McCormick, who was a medical doctor before she started writing books, incorporates gentle observations about physical and emotional health at all life stages. In this book, she particularly pays attention to the common stressors in relationships between couples. --Barbara McMichaels, The Bookmonger
