If you want to read this latest Phoebe mystery than I recommend reading the first two books in the series to get a better understanding of all the main characters that surround Phoebe. I was very glad that there was a list of the main characters and how they were related to Phoebe and her family and friends. I enjoyed the mystery and all the interaction between the characters. I enjoy this time period of the mid 1840s in the south. I liked the bit of romance that is throw in also. I received a copy of this book from Tooman Tales for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this book a four out of five stars.
