Jo Tulip, home hints heroine, is back in the final instalment of Mindy Starns Clark’s Smart Chick Mysteries, Elementary, My Dear Watkins.
Jo finds herself at the heart of another puzzle but one more deadly as she is pushed in front of a train by an unknown assailant, fleeing to her grandmother’s mansion who has her flanked with bodyguards.
Danny Watkins, Jo’s dearest friend and now true love, is living his dream of pursuing a photography career in Paris. When a further opportunity arises with a salary and benefits he can’t begin to fathom, Danny ponders his future.
A mysterious young genius, a life changing drug and a betrayal that strips Jo’s heart bare are all connected but can Jo join the dots before a successful attempt on her life is made?
Mindy Starns Clark has created lovable and quirky characters in this series and their appeal continues throughout this final book. Jo and Danny also have depth which is drawn out through Jo’s struggle with her parents and extended family who have never accepted her life choices and Danny’s desire to pursue his career dreams. The mystery is detailed and keeps the reader guessing and you just might find out how to clean that cheese encrusted toaster oven!
I eagerly anticipate this author’s future offerings. Ms Clark’s previous series, Million Dollar Mysteries are also well worth the investment!
