This was probably one of her best. The characters were well-written and very true. Plus, I really didn't know "whodunit." She totally bamboozled me. I could have done with more romance with her and Geoff though. I guess now that they're married, the romance is dead. ( )

I didn't like this one as much as the previous ones. It didn't give many hints as to the perpetrator - we didn't know about Sammie's aunt until the end - and it seemed a bit drawn-out. I still enjoyed Jenny but missed the interaction between her and Geof. Not bad but not great. ( )

Book description
back cover:
Jenny Cain didn't particularly like pompous, wealthy do-gooder MaryDell Paine, but she wasn't unsympathetic to her plea. MaryDell wanted the Port Frederick Civic Foundation, which Jenny headed, to fund a recreation centre for former mental patients in the basement of an abandoned church. Despite competition from another buyer, Jenny was optimistic. Most of the neighbours didn't object to the centre - until a man was found slashed to death in the basement, and all clues pointed to a paranoid schizophrenic patient. But when Jenny plunges into the shifting motivations of nervous neighbours, jealous lovers, greedy realtors and even her own charming, ne'er-do-well assistant, she comes up with another conclusion - one that puts her squarely in a cold-blooded murderer's line of fire.
