    amateur-sleuth, family-dynamics, friendship, women-sleuths, murder, mystery The Ferrara lady sleuths are very Sicilian Catholic older widow Alberta and her granddaughter Jinx, Alberta's ex-nun sister Helen, and formerly sister in law a former Wall Street executive Joyce. Alberta and the health conscious Jinx go out for a morning jog in Tranquility park and find a decidedly dead body at the base of an old tree with a tree house but no ladder. While Jinx calls police, Alberta calls the other Ferrara sleuths. Enter Alberta's childhood friend and Chief of Police, Vinny, and his preferred detective Kichiro who appears to be the boyfriend of Jinx's roommate. From here on things only get messier and twisty complete with red herrings and improbable suspects! A great read! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    The Ferrara Detective Agency is Back in Business

    Alberta and her granddaughter, Jinx, have taken up jogging to keep Alberta healthy. Out for an early morning job they find a local man dead at the bottom of a treehouse. It looks like he fell in a drunken stupor, but Alberta doesn’t believe it, she smells murder! The local sheriff believes it was just an accident, but has learned from past experience that Alberta and the ladies are often right, so he orders some tests to find the man was poisoned. When Jinx’s roommate, Nola, is arrested for the murder Jinx vows to prove her innocence and the ladies begin detecting in earnest. Once out on bail, Nola makes things worse for herself and is arrested again when a local police officer is found murdered in the same spot, right after Nola called and asked to see him. Eventually some detective and some old fashioned smarts from Alberta’s years of being able to read people and notice things brings it all together and things click. But will the ladies live long enough to share their findings with the sheriff? I can just hear my Aunt Josie and her sister Anne speaking when I read this book. It takes me back to my childhood in New Jersey. For me the characters feel like family and I also too enjoy the dynamics between the ladies. An enjoyable read with a good mix of red herrings to keep you guess whodunit until close to the end.
