Image of Mischief Becomes Her


Image of Mischief Becomes Her

Jump into a second episode with the Sunshine girls, plus some Beckets. Throw in strong hints that the series will end up with a treasure hunt at Romney Marsh, and it all adds up to plenty of mischief. While this book doesn't sparkle quite as much as the first -- the author tries to tie in too many threads, both historical and modern -- it still has loads of Michaels' deft wit and fast plotting. Readers will
be raring for the next book in this delightful series.

The Sunshine sisters' dad, an old-line Philly cop, is accused of murder, then driven to commit suicide. His girls are not going to let a frame-up like that get by. The strongest lead they have is a set of four cold cases their father was working on just before his death.

Naturally, these high-octane sisters pull some lovely men into their hunt for justice as they cope with their grief, their anger and their hearts. Meanwhile, as two of the gents in question are Beckets, the Sunshine sisters get drawn into the question of the Empress, a cursed emerald. Never a dull moment around here, that's for sure!
