ELEMENTARY, MY DEAR WATKINS
Sadly, Clark's Smart Chick mystery series ends with this third book. Realistic dialogue, a unique suspense premise and a winsome heroine and hero tie things up nicely. Though it's clear the author has done a fair amount of research, readers never
feel inundated with information. The story flows well, and there are lots of suspects to keep you reading into the night.
She is determined to solve the mystery alone, along with the help of her grandmother, who may hold more clues than she lets on. When some events change Danny's course, will he pursue his dreams, possibly losing the woman he loves? (Harvest House, Jan., 300 pp., $12.99)
