Mary Marks ½ 5 Summary

Summary Knot In My Backyard ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free And Birdie soon discover a whole field of suspects who might have wanted to take the coach out of the game permanently Praise for Forget Me Knot Mary Marks has stitched together a very clever plot with a cast of engaging characters in this funny fast paced debut mystery Laura Levine author of Killing Cupi. Martha Rose wants to lose weight so she s joined weight watchers again She wants to wear her size 16 jeans without busting the seams She taking up walking to help achieve that goal In the process she runs across the body of the local baseball coach She calls her detective boyfriend Arlo Beavers and then tosses her cookies all over her new shoes One of the worst things about the new cozies is the trend to have the romantic triangle It s beyond annoying to me Here it s worse than usual We ve got Martha not just being pursued by two men but actually sleeping with both Throw in the fact that I didn t much care for the character anyway and it just made the book hard to finish I guess my problem with the romantic triangle is it makes the character weak She doesn t know her own mind She frets and spends too much time trying to decide what to do Meanwhile the actual mystery takes a backseat In this case it doesn t help that the mystery is unbelievable Why this is a uilting mystery I don t know There s not much about uilting I think it s just another ploy to make it fit in with some kind of craft cozy genreI won t bother looking up the first one

Summary Knot In My Backyard ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Baseball may be America's official favorite pastime but for Martha Rose and her friends uilting is far funand a lot less dangerousA diamond brocade pattern is uilter Martha Rose's style than a baseball diamond especially when it comes to the new eyesore of a stadium ruining her lovely San Fernando Valley n. Martha Rose s neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California used to be peaceful and uiet until a local private school built a baseball stadium in the open space that used to boarder her street She and her neighbors have tried to fight it even after it was built but no one is willing to listen to them While out for a walk one morning Martha finds the dead body of Dax Martin the school s baseball couch The police begin to uickly focus on her neighbor Ed Pappas who had a fight with the victim recently but Martha doesn t believe he is guilty Can she prove ituilting doesn t play as big a part of this mystery as it did the first in the series but it is still an active part of Martha s life as are her uilting friends It s hard to complain since this book is filled with a strong mystery Martha strikes out early which only adds to her drive to solve things and makes the solution satisfying for us when she does Some of Martha s attitude and actions early on were a little frustrating for me but it made me appreciate the character growth we saw in her later in the book The rest of the cast are great and I enjoyed spending time with them returning characters and new characters alike When I read the first book in the series I found some needless political comments off putting but they were absent in this book The plot does bring up a few political issues as a natural part of the plot but they are kept in the background here the book never stops to peach and they only come up very briefly As a Los Angeles resident I enjoyed seeing places I know pop up in this book especially a few key scenes that took place near where I played ultimate Frisbee for years Overall this is a fun second mystery that will please cozy mystery readersRead my full review at Carstairs Considers
