This is definitely a cozy with a "twist"! The main character has synesthesia........you don't run across that in a character every day. I had heard of this condition and read a little about it, but this book really expanded my knowledge on the subject. Great, colorful characters, especially Cora, the "computer geek". Great camaraderie in the group. The story moved along at a great clip and even though I was pretty sure who the bad guy was it didn't detract from things at all. If you're looking for a story that has a little something different, don't hesitate to pick this one up! RECOMMEND!
