Meanwhile, KC’s new boyfriend feels things are moving too fast and their relationship ends and KC flies to spend time with her aunts Zula and Fern.
I really enjoyed reading this story. This is a funny easy to read book that will keep you wondering what the two women will get into next. This is a clean and wholesome romance with a lot of mystery. Authors Michelle Griep and Kelly Klepfer have done a wonderful job of writing a who done it type of story. It is very fast moving with so many different things happening all at once. There are a lot of characters in the story by they are very easy to follow along with. Most are introduced at the very beginning of the story as Zula and Fern walk to breakfast.
I received a copy of this book from the authors and Book Club Network. This is my honest review.
