On The Back:
Maggie Gerber-one of the founding members of the Good Buy Girls- loves her quiet life in St. Stanley, Virginia. But all that changes when Sam Collins, her old flame, moves back to town as the new sheriff. On top of that, Claire Freemont, a librarian and the newest member of the Good Buy Girls, starts acting utterly strange.
When Maggie goes to visit her the next day at the library, she finds the body of a very dead man. Turns out the man is someone from Claire’s past. As the handsome new sheriff zeroes in on Claire, it’s up to Maggie and the rest of the Good Buy Girls to use their bargain-hunting skills to hunt a killer-while making sure they don’t pay too much in the process…
This was a wonderful start to what looks like a promising series that I read in less than a day.
I could have done without the angst between Maggie and Sam, but by the end that was pretty well resolved. Besides that I liked the characters, they were all realistic.
The mystery was good, it wasn’t the best I’ve read, but yet it was solid and well-built.
Overall a good book. I’ll read the next one.
