I really enjoy this series and this latest installment did not disappoint at ALL. I love Kiki, Detweiler, Clancy, Anya, and the rest of the cast. In this book, we get introduced to Wendy and to Nona and the other Miss Fits. The characters in this series are all very well-rounded and in-depth characters. I love reading a series because you get to know more and more about the characters with every book.

The plot line was great. While we knew who the villain was, the climax of the book was still surprising and exciting! I actually loved that this book was more than just a murder to be solved. It was a refreshing change from your basic murder-based cozy!

All in all, I really enjoyed this latest installment of Kiki and the rest of the gang. I highly recommend all the books in this series. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but of course it's fun to read them in order too! The first book is Paper, Scissors, Dead. Either way you choose - run out and grab this series!!!

Step back in time to 1986 when newspapers were still the major source for retail ads. Here you will meet Cragan Collins who has a mountain of debts from her divorce and only wants to support herself and grandmother.

Taking a sales position at The Gazette, Decatur's local newspaper, she is befriended and mentored by reporter Robert Smithson. Cragan spends her days visiting local retailers trying to entice them to advertise, creating ads, and delivering and picking up ad copy. All the while being undermined by her ex-husband badmouthing her and a sales director who keeps reassigning her accounts to his buxom favorite on the staff!

And then Robert is murdered! When his death is dismissed as "gay on gay crime", Cragan turns to her Friday night mystery book club to help her find the truth behind Robert's death ...

An enjoyable mystery with believable though 'different' characters, an easy flow, and a plot that makes for fun a fun story to read.
