A follow-up on my last current read post: to my great delight – the best was saved for last in this collection.
Books 1 and 2 of the D. B. Burns Mysteries (books 5 and 6 in this collection) were a perfect blend of light-hearted and sad. There was mystery/suspense; vindictive neighbors and secret rooms. A whole team of good guys came together and they won in the end. It felt wonderful to have the power hungry tyrants exposed in the most dramatic of ways. (can’t say too much here and spoil the fun)
The smart people were definitely on the good side this time and it was an enjoyable ride.

If you appreciate irony and dry humor, you will love this too.
