So why was I annoyed? The lead character is loosely tied to a murder. Her ex is a police detective. Every time a man shows up at her house, the first thing she does is offer to fix him a meal. The third time she did that, I quit, I gave up. That was the second free meal for the ex, who always looks hungry to her. He’s a grown man and ought to know how to provide himself with a meal other than mooching off an ex-girlfriend, no matter how subservient she is. This came on top of him notifying her that he has a key to her house and intends to stop by whenever he darn well feels like it and letting himself in because she is taking care of his son’s dog. She for some reason says (to the reader, in the first-person narrative) that she objects to his stopping by at will but “I couldn’t say no.” Why not? It's easy. How about: Not just no but hell no, and by the way, I'm changing the locks NOW. And it might not be a good idea because I might think you are a burglar or worse and something bad could happen to you. So maybe you should take your son’s dog and take care of it yourself.
But, no, she only demurely asks him if he would agree on times and days -- and he says no. He won’t. Seriously, what a spineless doormat she is and what an arrogant, domineering jerk he is. Can you imagine a man telling you he has a right to walk into your home any time he darn well feels like it?
And what does she say when he does walk in? Gee, you look hungry, let me fix you something to eat.
“Tarzana Hookers”. Molly is a forty- something

No one notices that Molly’s scarf was inadvertently
dropped out front.
Then the body of Timothy Clark is discovered

vivid, entertaining and interesting characters.
A good read.
Although this is book # 12 in the Crochet Mysteries
series, I had no problem following along with all
the characters and their antics.
