To make matters worse, a Hazel Marie Puckett drops off a young boy and says the boy is her late husband’s child.

Or will she lose it all?
Rating: 3.5 – a different style of a cozy mystery
Opinion: This was an interesting book. I didn’t love it but didn’t hate it. The characters a little old fashioned and too off their rocker for me. Some of their ideas and actions were a bit weird for me. Maybe it’s the southern way or the style of the book but I didn’t love it. I rolled my eyes at some of the characters antics. It was an entertaining book but not one of my favorites. If you need a kinda silly and easy read this would be a good book.
