“This was a nice, easy little mystery. Odelia made some stupid decisions, but they didn't net her the trouble the heroine usually gets into in these types of books. I thought she was entirely too trusting of Greg and the stuff with the detective just felt weird. But overall, this was a nice little read. ”Jennifer J wrote this review Sunday, February 12, 2012.

“I really liked this one. And that says a lot.
Instead of the svelte beauties typical of murder investigations in this genre, we have an overweight perhaps average-looking woman in Odelia trying to piece together an apparent suicide of her close friend Sophie.
Not only is inspirational and successful Sophie one of the last persons one would expect to commit suicide, there are other details about her that only come to surface after her death, throwing Odelia into a tailspin.
There’s much suspense in this especially as surprises keep popping up, making for more questions than answers.
If you’re like me and are ready for a change from the Barbie-look-alike women dressed more for the runway than a murder investigation, give this one a try. You won’t be disappointed.
“Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!! I had no idea what kind of book I was going to read when I started this humdingah!
Best of all, I loved Odelia's moxie, once she found it. Bless her, she's a big girl like me, plenty to love, but has to work on her 'go get 'em 'tude. Thankfully, she has her plus size bud, Sophie. Sophie has helped many other zaftig women in the area with her support group and morning walking group. Sophie is larger than life in more than dress size. So when she commits suicide, Odelia knows something is wrong with that picture. And she begins to investigate.
She learns some astonishing info on someone she thought she knew well. Rather than deter her, it makes Odelia work harder at finding out what happened.
There's a bevy of twists and turns in this fantabulous book and I cannot wait to read more adventures of Odelia. She has a new relationship with a sweetie and a green cat...what's not to want to discover?
Five shiny larger than life diamonds......”
“This was an awesome, quick read that I breezed through in one day. At just 231 pages, the pages flew by. I was hooked from the first paragraph and found this book hard to put down. It was a nice mystery that I enjoyed because there was really no foul language and no graphic depictions of sex (despite one of the characters owning and being the star of an adult website. Sometimes it IS nice to read a book without all that stuff in it.) I also really liked the main character, Odelia Grey. I will be checking out more books in this series in the future.”bookworm wrote this review Monday, September 5, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Odelia is an interesting character - and I couldn't predict the ending of the book. It is fun to read.”Granny wrote this review Saturday, August 20, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Book 1 of 2 book series - book 2 is kindle freebie. This was something of a surprise. The mystery itself was quite good - the extraneous "stuff" got in the way.”Carol D wrote this review Wednesday, July 6, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
