"I love a new mystery series, and SUEDE TO REST is a great debut. Poly is a smart character, charming and kind hearted as well. She's not graceful, but her klutzy tendencies make her all the more homan.

Toss in a potential romance with a rich prince charming, and you'll find yourself lost ina  delightful cozy mystery you are sure to enjoy."--Myshelf.com
