PINK BALLOONS AND OTHER DEADLY THINGS – Nancy Tesler

Pink BalloonsA fun read, if you consider reading about murder fun.  There has to be something wrong with me, right?

Half chick lit ‘he done me wrong’ story about the 18 year marriage that dissolved the night the hubs walked out on Christmas Eve for a younger and more glamorous model, and half murder mystery when that very same  younger and more glamorous model was found murdered in the ex’s back yard. The story also comes completely equipped with a single, decent-guy homicide detective, and an apparently  disloyal deceitful BFF.  So just like burger King, you get it ‘your way’.  Or something.

Our protagonist, Carrie, is a biofeedback counselor.  Is that really a thing?  Can you make a living with this? Who knew?   Amazing what you can learn even reading light entertainment fiction.

It’s a fine mystery, and as usual, I totally didn’t see the end coming.  Good thing I didn’t decide to be a P.I.   I would have a solve rate of zip zero nada.

Good writing, and you will be pleased to know there is apparently a series of these … And Other Deadly Things titles.  I don’t know if they all feature Carrie and the detective, but I have the feeling they do.  After all, a good man nowadays is hard to find.
