A Real Basketcase

if you love a new good cozy mystery, you'll love Beth Groundwater's A Real Basket Case, the first installment in the Claire Hanover Gift Basket Designer cozy series. When Claire was neglected from her husband Roger, she decided to join an aerobics class. In a moment of weakness, she decided to let her instructor give her a massage at home. That's when she made a deadly mistake, when someone shot and killed him in her home and her husband was arrested for his murder. In hopes of clearing his name, she decided to get to the bottom of it, while she tried to save her marriage and her basket business at the same time, when the truth hit closer to her home, putting her in the middle and thick of things.  

 This was a great introduction to the Claire Hanover cozy series. I cared about her and Roger with their struggling marriage. I became interested on her gift basket business and concerned about her investigating the murder. I loved the Colorado location for the cozy series in the picturesque settings.  This would take you for a great ride in this easy read as your fingers flip through the pages. Good drama, excellent non-stop action and suspense, and plenty of intrigue and mystery along the way.

Are you a real basket case? If so, check it out today!
