The Fourth Abby McCree Mystery
It's bad enough that Abby McCree is once again in charge of a committee, but she's also dealing with a visit from her mother. Abby's relationship with her mother is strained as Phoebe carries on with a relative stranger, but treats Abby as if she were a teenager. Things get more complicated when Abby and Phoebe find a dead body while cleaning up after the town's movie night. With her romantic interest a person of interest Phoebe goes on the warpath. Will Abby be able to rein her mom in, or will she be the one to blow her own top? With a young woman in the crosshairs of a killer, the two had better find a way to catch the murderer before they kill each other!
I really love this series and this book is a great example of just why. The mother/daughter dynamic in DEATH BY INTERMISSION is brilliantly written. Abby may be an adult, but living with her mom brings her right back to her teen-aged self. At times I wanted to throttle Phoebe and I was so proud when Abby stood up to her and fought back. I also feel the hurt that Abby felt when her mom said some of the things she did. But the two do love each other and I was cheering Phoebe on during the ultimate confrontation. I appreciate how Abby stands up for her friends and enjoy seeing the relationship between her and Tripp grow.
Intelligent, well developed characters, a smart well plotted mystery, a spark of romance, a sweet big dog, and laugh out loud moments make DEATH BY INTERMISSION a fantastic book that shouldn't be missed.
