Book Review

(by- Linda )

The tone of this book is charming. This is mainly because Molly, the narrator, is somewhere on the autism spectrum and also has OCD. As soon as you meet her, you know she has a unique view of the world. She takes everything literally, obsesses about the smallest thing, and says whatever pops into her head without any social filters. This makes her socially clumsy, vulnerable to con artists, and quirky but endearing.

There's also an excellent cast of supporting characters, from her beloved grandmother and her faithful friend Mr. Preston to con artists and other villains willing to take advantage of her. Overall, a nice mix of personalities lends variety and balance to the plot.

In summary, this is a well-written, character-driven cozy mystery that fans of "A Man Called Ove," and "Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine" will love. Highly recommend.
