Peg and Rose Solve a Murder
by Laurien Berenson
Berenson does a wonderful job of developing her characters and creating a cozy mystery with just the right amount of suspense and humor. The relationship between Peg and Rose is particularly heartwarming; despite their bickering, they love and support each other. The mystery itself is well-crafted and kept me guessing until the very end. Berenson provides plenty of clues, but she also throws in a few red herrings to keep the reader on their toes.
