Liked:* Stella is an older heroine (about 50) which is unusual for the books I usually read. I found it refreshing.* The characters are great - Stella and Crissy especially. They are strong women who have overcome a lot, including abuse from their spouses. I would have liked to learn a little more about Goat though.Liked Less:* The plot kept me reading but didn't keep me on the edge of my seat, even at the climax of the book.* I felt like the information that broke the case got handed to our intrepid heroines a little too easily.Overall, this was a good though somewhat average read. I like Stella and will be checking out the next book in the series.
