--comments from readers  

If you have a taste for cozy mystery series with a criminal edge, especially those told with a dash of humor and fun, and include a smart, brave heroine who must quickly reinvent herself—or else—a cute dog, quirky, colorful characters, and dark villains, you’ll love R. Marquez’s slightly skewed version of the Pacific Northwest.
