Description

Film lover Barbara Marr is a typical suburban mom living the typical suburban life in her sleepy little town of Rustic Woods. Typical that is, until she sets out to find the missing link between a bizarre monkey sighting in her yard and the bone chilling middle-of-the-night fright fest at the strangely vacant house next door. When Barb talks her two friends into some seemingly innocent Charlie's Angels-like sleuthing, they stumble upon way more than they bargained for and uncover a piece of neighborhood history that certain people would kill to keep on the cutting room floor

"This fun if light novel's quippy, hilarious character, Barbara Marr, has so much warmth and genuine gumption, you'd certainly want her on your criminal investigative team." - Publishers Weekly

    Now this is good! A cross between Erma Bombeck and Nancy Drew, it has suspense, laugh-out-loud humor, AND good writing. And this from me, who doesn't think twice about sending a half read book back into the electronic trash heap if it doesn't live up to early expectations. I couldn't put it down.
  • Had me laughing out loud!

    Great book for just plain fun entertainment. I was reading next to my husband who was sleeping and had to cover my mouth because I was laughing so hard. I love the characters-very real-they could be anyone's friends.
