    From Lilac Wolf and StuffOn my list of favorite authors, I would put Karen Cantwell up there just above Janet Evanovich I am in love with Barbara Marr and all her friends It s so good to have a heroine who is not perfect and is just trying to do what she loves, raising her girls and watching movies She started a movie review website which made me lover her all theI reviewed a few movies, but books are my passion lol.This is the 3rd book, but there are a few short stories out there From Lilac Wolf and StuffOn my list of favorite authors, I would put Karen Cantwell up there just above Janet Evanovich I am in love with Barbara Marr and all her friends It s so good to have a heroine who is not perfect and is just trying to do what she loves, raising her girls and watching movies She started a movie review website which made me lover her all theI reviewed a few movies, but books are my passion lol.This is the 3rd book, but there are a few short stories out there featuring Mrs Marr The way bad things happen around her, has people telling her she s a bad luck magnet and distancing themselves One of her best friends is even moving far away I felt so bad for her in this book And the poor thing can t even deny that she does have bad luck On the other hand, it s funny that Karen calls attention to how ridiculous it would be in real life to keep stumbling across murder mysteries.But here is why you will love Barbara too, she doesn t stop Her friend, someone she believed in was arrested She knew he was innocent and just kept plugging on to help him, no matter what I would like to say I would do that for a friend, but really we don t know until we are there Most of us would trust in the justice system Of course, having a husband in the FBI and a best friend investigator give her a different perspective.I can t wait to see what happens next It just keeps gettingout there, and the people around her keep losing patience Plus I love seeing what the mystery is and how it plays out Cantwell keeps it silly, but the mystery is strong.If you love quirky mystery go get a copy It s free right now, and only 3.99 regularly
