Kate Jasper, freshly divorced, helps her ex-husband in discovering who really killed his girl friend. I was not impressed with the characters, the plot and the final outcome of this mystery.

This is an entertaining, light read. A death occurs after a meeting of the Deer Abused Garden Club. It seems a little ridiculous that a second death occurs at the next meeting. It is interesting to get to know all the characters but which one has the murderous flaw? I can't believe Kate the main character gets much work done between answering her doorbell and answering her telephone. It's hard enough for the reader to keep everything straight with all the interruptions!

First one I've read in this series. I like Kate, dislike some of her friends, and think I love her new love interest!

I didn't guess the killer and was surprised by the ending so that always makes it a good book to me.

Kate is visiting her chiropractor when she discovers a dead body in one of the examination rooms. Maggie, the chiropractor, asks Kate to investigate because she doesn't trust the cops to get it right. Kate sets to work checking out all the people who were in the office at the time of the murder.

I can understand why the cops get frustrated with her, she does tend to go off on weird tangents and puts herself and others at risk.

I'll be looking for more in this series.

I like this second book int he Kate Jasper series but not as much as the first one. Happens sometimes with second books so I hope she rebounds with #3.

Kate rushes down to a health spa to try and help ex-husband Craig who is under suspicion for murdering his fiancee. Craig figures since she solved the murder before she can solve this one and get him off the hook. I didn't much care for Craig in the first book and his larger role in this book didn't do much for me. Wayne, Kate's current love, doesn't show up until about half-way through the book and I missed him, I believe he could become my favorite character.

The spa is populated by an amazing group of odd people including the owners. With the large cast of suspects it is hard for Kate to even find a path for finding the killer. The local police aren't happy that she is there, which is normal but makes it more difficult for Kate.

I didn't figure out the killer but once it was revealed it made perfect sense. I like that in a book, make you think - "duh, I should have seen that coming".

I'll read the next one which I hope with have a lot less Craig and a whole lot more Wayne.
