I'm usually pretty stingy with my 5 star reviews. A book has to really impress me to get that 5th star. And let's face it, a cozy, paranormal, mystery isn't usually considered great literature. But I think Angie Fox's DEADER HOMES AND GARDENS may have reached that pinnacle for me. I think the author has gone beyond the usual cookie cutter cozy mystery with this book. And although you don't have to read the previous 3 books in the series because Angie does a spectacular job of reviewing the reader on the who, what, where, when, and why from of the earlier books. That said: If you are not familiar with this series, start at the beginning and enjoy the ride.
