Goodreads reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐'Mystery and intrigue. This talented author has written a cannot put down whodunit.' NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐'I loved this book! A mom who strikes back and holds her own is an inspiration in itself. Relatable as a mom at times and totally loved the plot! Great read!!' NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐'Clever and twisty, I loved how each of the main characters used their strengths to get closer to the killer, and it's laugh out loud funny. I thought I'd worked out whodunnit and then was proved sort-of right and also wrong. The ending is a great mix of drama and hilarity, and I'm already looking forward to the next one - to spending more time with Clio, Jeanie and Amber.' NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
