I do enjoy crime thrillers and can turn a blind eye to the cussing if the book is engrossing enough. I believe this one is. Thanks for the great review!

I love crime novels. One of my favorite series of all time is the Dublin Murder Squad. You had me ready to pick up this book except that I hate when books have a lot of grammar errors. I find it very distracting. Thanks for the review!

With a potty mouth, Parker is headed for trouble with the PTA. This seems to be a fun read.

It's definitely engaging, and the characters are the best part of the book. Thanks so much!

Oh, Parker is definitely in trouble with the PTA. She has a knack for finding trouble. Thanks!

Huh!
I do enjoy a crime novel every once in a while, but not just anything works for me. You did a good review of this book and I'm tempted to put it on my list.

This is not just any crime novel. It's fun and filled with humor, too. Thanks for commenting!

Like many people, I am often inclined to read a mystery thriller, espcially if I know there will be a shocking, unforseen conclusion! With a review ensuring this level of bewilderment, plus a strong-willed female lead, I can say with confidence that this may have just moved to the top of my reading list. Thanks for the review!

I love a good murder. I don't curse but I'm willing to overlook that for the sake of a good book. I like that the lead is strong willed. Thanks for the recommendation. :D

I hope you read it and enjoy. It was quite fascinating for me to read. I hope to see more of this protagonist in the future!

Well, her children do try to keep her from cussing, but they aren't quite successful in this novel. :) Thanks for your comment.

Oh this murder mystery sounds really good. I like that there are twists and turns. A strong main character is always a draw too. Thank you for that review.

Thanks for the recommendation. It sounds like a book I would love and once I read, can pass to a few others I think would enjoy as well. Great review!

I love a good murder book and what's better? A strong willed woman at the center of it all. This a definite must-read.
