Sobre l'autor

Jill Churchill (born Janice Young Brooks) on January 11, 1943 in Kansas City, Missouri. She earned a degree in education from the University of Kansas in 1965 before teaching elementary school. Between 1978 and 1992, she was book reviewer for the Kansas City Star. She published several historical mostra'n més novels under her real name before introducing a new series in 1989. This mystery series follows Jane Jeffry, a widow with three children in Chicago. With her neighbor and best friend, she gets involved in murder cases. The novel titles are puns on literary works and reflect Jeffry's cozy domestic life which she leads between crime-solving episodes.

Sort of scattered mystery in small town Depression era New York. American born German arrives in town after fleeing Nazis. He is target of hate crimes but the murder of railroad porter seems unrelated.

Invited to plan a wedding, Jane and her friend Shelly, discover that there is supposedly a treasure on the grounds of the hunting lodge venue. The elderly seamstress is murdered with no suspect and no apparent motive. The bride hesitates but consents but the groom is murdered. Rather confused.

Standard mystery, ditsy women, lots of over-explaining their thoughts. Off the wall premise: Jane is helping to watch the other's children at a ski resort? Yet she hardly spends time with them. Jane's boyfriend is along but we rarely hear what he is doing, other than "spending time with the boys" unless she needs to ask him to use his connections to get info. Has a weak Native American storyline connection.
Obviously this isn't my usual genre, & I would never have picked it up except it came boxed with 9 other audio tapes, some of which I wanted.… (més)
