Ditto everything that Hannah
said, only I will add that I thought that Aames did a very good job of establishing "family" in this story. The familial aspects seemed very authentic and honest to me, and I would say that I thought the grandmother and grandfather were perhaps the best drawn, most lovable and most realistic characters in the story. There were moments between them that really did choke me up, and I really did *care* about what happened to them. I really wish they had been the sleuths in this tale! What a great well-loved mystery-solving duo they could be!
Also, this book made me very hungry. The culinary aspects wreaked havoc on my self-control! Pretty sure the Long Quiche Goodbye helped me regain some pounds, so hello, exercise videos! :-)
