It s up to Lila and her fellow agents to find the real killer before one of their clients winds up scribbling stories from behind bars..."
Great series and great characters. Lila sure has her work cut out for her in this book. One client charged with murder, while another one might have done it. But how to prove it?
Add to that the fact that her mother has a new boyfriend, and her son has quit college to follow a career in cooking and her fiancée is reluctant to set a wedding date …
But of course all will work out. I loved that she got closer to her mother, as they were working together at the event. Althea sure is a character that could have her own series!
