I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
The book and the series that started it all for me - once I read this I was forever in the cozy camp. If I could pick my neighbors, and someone forced me to live in the 'burbs, I would totally choose Jane and Shelly. Not only are they likeable, but also, a constant source of entertainment.
This, the first in the series, is excellent - the plot is very well drawn out, with great clues, lots of suspects and many red herrings. The ending is madcap and *totally* unbelievable, but it was so much fun, I didn't care!
