Inferior book don t bother.I hoped for clever it delivered trite I looked for fun it was boring.There are many well crafted, literate mystery books being written Don t dismiss the genre as a whole, but don t select this book if you are looking for anything special. A mystery with lots of friendsThis one took me by surprise Two designers ended up competing because of inaccurate information But now, they were on the same street with neighbors who were frenemies Easy read Pull up a nice chintz, comfy chair and settle in for lots of twists and turns in this designer mystery. I love interior design and mysteries, so I thought this would be a no brainer I was wrong It was poorly written and the plot was so twisted I had trouble figuring out what was really going on Too many scenes were contrived simply to further the plot along I give it two stars because I actually finished it. Rather annoyingA long, drawn out tale of a woman looking for her birth parents, when she could just go to the local county records office and look it up There are only about six characters in the story, all of whom seem to be bent on hurting her physically, or emotionally The author does not weave a story that makes this believable in any way It s a farce without comedy.
