Why did I pick this book?: I read the first in the series, and this one was sitting on the shelf waiting for me.

Summary and Review: taken from the author's website-

“Some days are just weird city.

Take today. Jane Kelly, thirtysomething ex-bartender, current process server, and owner of The Binkster, a pug, is dutifully putting in slave-labor hours working for Dwayne Durbin, local "information specialist" (i.e., private investigator), and on the road to becoming a P.I. herself. Next thing she knows she's socializing with the Purcells, a rich, eccentric rich family with a penchant for going crazy and/or dying in spectacularly mysterious ways.

From what Jane can tell, the Purcells all want Orchid Purcell's money. And when Orchid turns up in a pool of blood, the free-for-all has just begun. Then when Jane finds a second body, it seems weird city is about to get even weirder...and a lot more deadly...”

I tried this book before I read Candy Apple Red and didn’t like it. But after I got to know the characters, I thought I should give it another try. I’m glad I did. Bush writes an interesting, twisting mystery, with a large cast of characters to choose from. Jane is quirky, independent, and owns a pug. What more do you need out of a heroine? A great read to dig in with as the weather is turning…
