Penelope has another author in her store and guess what? She ends up dead, only this time not in the store. Penelope decides, along with Jack, that she needs to solve the murder so none of her friends are railroaded like she almost was last book. So she starts sleuthing again and getting in trouble.
I like Penelope and Jack. There are some twists in her relationship with Jack that I really liked. He is training her and she is getting to understand his 1940's lingo. I like how Jack pushes Penelope, not only with the sleuthing but also with loosening up with her son. I like the townspeople that Penelope has gathered around her. I also am enjoying some of the romances that are in the beginning stages. Her in-laws are jerks and I'm glad see stood up to them.
I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
