LONELY HEARTS CLUB
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
Belle Meade is the most fabulous retirement home in Dallas, so it comes as no surprise that the area's wealthiest widows have decided to make it their home. What is a surprise, however, is that two of them have been murdered -- or so it would appear to socialite Cissy Kendricks, who enlists the aid of her amateur-sleuth daughter, Andy, in tracking down the truth.
Cissy decides to go undercover at Belle Meade, donning the tackiest clothes, jewelry and makeup that she can find, while Andy is left wondering
Andy and her mother are wonderful characters who have a difficult but loving relationship. The characterization in this book is excellent, which helps to make the predictable plot palatable. Careful readers will be able to identify the murderer before Andy and her mother do, but this is an entertaining romp through the highest levels of Dallas society nonetheless. (Feb., 352 pp., $6.99)
