I love this author. She writes as Sofie Ryan, Sofie Kelly, and Darlene Ryan. I have never read anything of hers under the last name, but I have gobbled up her other books.
The main character (depending on your point of view) in this particular series is either Sarah, the upcycling shop owner, or Elvis the cat. I know which way I lean. Anyway, friends of her grandmother’s use the shop as the base for their private investigation service, Charlotte’s Angels.
Yeah, I know.
Everyone in the group is at least seventy years old and try as she might Sarah keeps getting dragged into helping with the cases. Elvis, however, is integral in solving them and can be quite smug about it.
The relationships between the characters are like a large family. They love each other, but they can certainly get on each others’ nerves.
“I heard that tone,” she said.
“Good,” I told her, leaning down to kiss her forehead. “I’d hate to think I’d been too subtle.”
And sometimes the dialogue is just funny.
“Are you crazy?” she asked.
“It’s a possibility,” I said lightly. “I’ve never been officially tested.”
“Well, may you should be so we can get confirmation.”
That sounds like a line right out of Big Bang Theory.
This book was released this past Tuesday and although I had another book I was supposed to read next, it jumped to the top of the list. Again, as I say with most if not all series, read them in order. They will be so much better if you do.
