To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Marcia Talley's series heroine, Hannah Ives, is a pleasure to spend time with: She's compassionate, inquisitive (well, nosy), articulate, intelligent, involved in life and in her community. Although I've read many others in the series, readers can pick up almost any of Talley's books and enjoy a superior mystery with believable characters, timely issues, and a satisfying conclusion. In this book, Hannah begins volunteering in a continuing care retirement community, where she's introduced to residents and employees whose backgrounds, beliefs, and motivations are different enough to create conflict and, of course, a fascinating -- and unpredictable -- murder mystery. Don't miss this excellent entry in Talley's long-running series! Highly recommended.
