A Hole in One by Judy Penz Sheluk
MY REVIEWDoes getting divorced mean you don’t like each other? It surely means you don’t want to get back together, right? On the other hand, it surely means you’d help one another out of a little predicament, right? Unless maybe it’s murder.
This is a fun, easy read. There are some very sweet unexpected moments in this book making it have some twists and turns as well as reminding us there are good people in this world too. A nice change. It doesn’t involve much golf if that’s what you’re worried about. The golf and the hole-in-one pertain to a charity to help kids, well…and a big prize for big kids too. Other than being just a really enjoyable read, I liked this book because the main character, Arabella, owns an antique shop called The Glass Dolphin. This was not a book filled with chapters full of tips on antiques but it does touch on them and I enjoyed reading about a few very collectible pieces. This is a community where everyone knows everyone and rumors fly like bats in the night. The characters were likeable while not especially dissimilar from other books of this type. That sounds as if I don’t think the author developed her characters well and that is not my intent. I’m only saying there were the expected characters as there are in many books of this type; your handsome cop, an ex-husband, a business partner, a jealous woman, and your community gossip. Nonetheless, I can tell you I didn’t put it down for a minute til the very end.
This is Volume 2 of a series titled “Glass Dolphin Mysteries” and I see Judy Penz Sheluk has really good ratings on many of her books. Let’s just hope she keeps writing more entertaining ones like this.
