    I love a good murder mystery and this story kept me guessing right till the end. Very well written and I really enjoyed reading this book even though I did not solve who had done it. Lot's of twists and turns made an excellent read. I love a good murder mystery and this story kept me guessing right till the end.

    This would probably have merited 3 stars if it hadn't been riddled with misplaced punctuation, typos and incorrect words. The story itself was engaging fluff, but had the potential to be much more. This would probably have merited 3 stars if it hadn't been riddled with misplaced punctuation, typos and incorrect words.

    This was a lot more serious than I expected from the title and in some parts was actually quite intense. But there was a lot of light hearted spots throughout, particularly the ideas for the eCards (that each chapter is named after). I think the ideas for some of the cards are genius and I would happily buy cards with the art and text that is described. It was quite predictable and I guessed who the killer was right from when they were introduced. Definitely an enjoyable read, but it wasn't quit This was a lot more serious than I expected from the title and in some parts was actually quite intense.

    Molly is engaging and likeable. The story line was interesting and fast paced. However there are several typos, punctuation errors, missing words, as well as some plot discrepancies. For example, it starts out sticky hot and sweltering yet, not even two weeks later she's in sweats, drinking hot chocolate, while under an afghan with the heat on in her house. This whiplash change in the weather wasn't mentioned at all. It makes me think the author forgot what she stated a few chapters before. Wond Molly is engaging and likeable.

Wonder why her proofreaders didn't catch it along with the grammatical issues.

    Fun and Mysterious Hard to beat and good mystery. Molly moves back to her home town and into her parents home while they are in Florida and her husband is working overseas. Everyone treats her as if she and her husband are divorced and she was forced to move back home to raise her children. She was worried about this move because she had written a poem about a teacher that wasn't faltering and it turned up in the school newsletter.

Of course there is a murder that Molly has to help solve because the police arrested the wrong person. It started a little slow but once the different old friends started making appearances then it got better. There are also drawings of her cards. They are kind of funny. She draws them to order.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I wish more authors wrote like this. It is like when you are watching a horror movie and the characters do the dumbest things like open a door, go into the basement, etc. This book is just the opposite. The main character makes better decisions and they feel like what I would do, for the most part, meaning I would not do things 100% exactly like that, but close. This is the main reason I gave it 5 stars. Overall, the 5 stars are not just for the actual story, but what the author put into the sto I wish more authors wrote like this.

I am thinking I must have a newer, updated (corrected) copy of this book as the reviews before mine were hard on the typos, spelling etc. Yes, there were still some, but a little thinking and you can easily fill in the missing/wrong parts. The story had some moving parts that I would change. Specifically, the character Stephanie. The things she did in the book would have stopped many people from continuing any interaction with her. As a reader, it is sometimes up to me to decide for myself and not the author. Yes, I am reading your book, and I like to think ahead as I read and see where a story is going. This one proved to be above average on what I could figure out ahead of reading. Overall, I did like this book and found the added artwork in this edition to be a nice touch.

    Promising start to a series I wasn't sure what to expect with this book. At times I found myself wondering why these women still cared so much about high school happenings, but then there were times when those old rivalries and cliques described in the story seemed perfectly plausible. I will say that Molly's ecards seemed lacking in artistic talent but they were kind of funny and having them dispersed through the story was a pleasant distraction. The writing is decent, with a few editing misses Promising start to a series I wasn't sure what to expect with this book.

The writing is decent, with a few editing misses such as misplaced or missing words and punctuation, but no worse than most ebooks. Some of the plot points are a bit far fetched but overall it's a passable story. The murder motive is a little sketchy but the small town characters feel about right. I went to a small high school in a small town and many of my classmates are still there. Anyway, Molly is a likeable and relatable main character with the same mom problems as most moms have. It's a quick read.

    An extremely enjoyable book! I mean it, in my opinion, this book has everything I look for in an enjoyable and entertaining mystery. Twists and turns around every corner. A truly classic whodunit in the deepest sense of the term. It's no secret to my friends that I am a huge fan of the true "whodunits" on the level of the Queen of Mystery, Dame Agatha Christie, and Mrs. O'Kane is right up there with her works and this book in particular.

Now, I am not saying Mrs. O'Kane is on the level with Christie (no one comes close) but, in my opinion, she is an excellent writer in her own right. This book has it all. Equal parts humor, thrills, surprises everything a great novel should have. If you are like me, a fan of a great mystery, you have to read this one. I highly recommend this book for mystery fans.

    This book was definitely disjointed- which makes sense, since apparently it's a re-write of an earlier novel, attempting (semi-successfully) to bring the tech more up-to-date. However, the plot was also somewhat random and disjointed, as were the characters. The behavior of the kids involved varied wildly in terms of age, as did the way their parents treated them. Like, I would say even running next door would be Right Out if one were leaving a 5 and a 7 year old at home with only each other.

The adults' behavior is also often arbitrary, and that's a real problem for a plot that focuses mostly on charactrr, past and present. I do not plan on reading more in this series, or by this author.

    One of the more interesting cozies I've recently read. I love the main character Molly (exspecially her sense of humor) and her e-card business provides an interesting back story. The plot was (mostly) believeable, and the dialogue seemed realistic. There was a tad too much mother/child interaction for me but your results may vary. And I must say the author kept me guessing as to "who done it" up until the end. Bravo Ms. O'Kane!

    I quite liked this book, it was well enough written with an intense plot. There were some humorous points dotted throughout the book. The characters were interesting and deep enough. I think what dropped it down to 3 stars was the typos within the book. I feel like it could have done with a fresh proofread/edit. Otherwise this was an ok read. I think it was the strong plot that kept hold of me and the humour. I felt it was interesting but there was a little less of a spark to bump it up to a 5 s I quite liked this book, it was well enough written with an intense plot.

    Just the fax, man Molly Masters has moved back to the town where she grew up. Immediately, she becomes immersed in the murder of one of her teachers. A suspect even despite the fact she is being threatened via faxes. Figuring out this murder and another related murder may be just as deadly for her and her family. Two issues for me: lots of typos of various kinds that could easily be corrected with better proofing, and the medication issues of dosing, which would only be noticed by a pharmacist or Just the fax, man Molly Masters has moved back to the town where she grew up.

Just returned to her hometown for a year's stay, Molly receives a letter from an old teacher and a death threat the same day. What?! How could old passions and hatreds survive 20 years of living?

    Wow! I did not get this one at all. I thought a fellow may have done this who knew something about computers, but everyone who knows computers could have. I felt Molly should move back to Colorado and away from the mess. I think her husband did too. What happened in high school followed her and was in her thoughts. I am glad she will be staying in her parents home.

    Darn good cozy mystery This was a pretty good, fun and easy to read cozy mystery, with characters well developed and a story line that is pretty humorous and unique (the lead character is not fantasizing about a hot guy she just met over the dead body) The mystery takes place today but takes the reader down high school memory lane. Very good way to spend the afternoon.

    Not a bad first installment There were a lot of characters introduced in this book and some seemed to lack purpose to the plot. I thought that Molly was a very unsympathetic character but her character improved as the story progressed. Solution to the mystery wad too easy even with all of the minor characters

    Molly masters heads back to her hometown in New York thinking her husband will be working there- but he is sent abroad. She rekindles high school friendships and tries to apologize to an old teacher when the mayhem starts. I liked the characters and it was a quick, easy light read (and free on Amazon).

    Truly enjoyable. Some parts are definitely LOL. I loved the character of Molly and her demented sense of humor. The story line is very good and I was trying to figure out who dunnit right up to the reveal. A fun read that is worth your time.

    Could have been better There was a lot of typos in the book that should have been noticed prior to publish. I found myself getting bored throughout the book. Dosing of the drugs should have been researched better. Characters needed more depth to engage the reader.

    This was an interesting scenario, a mother of two returning to her childhood home and reconnecting with former high school classmates. Trying to solve a murder is also on the agenda! Leslie O’Kane did a superb job of keeping me guessing until the end.
