you don t pay attention to the grease stains or find the clientele around you an issue, you ll do fine.The writing was sometimes sloppy, and the dialogues trite but the plot advancement was rollicking and the central character, a feisty, crop dusting thrice divorced woman from Fresno who gets involved in solving murders, supported by equally tough and entertaining secondary female characters in the form of her 90 year old grannie and her man hungry cousin, both visiting from Texas, won me over It s not great literature, but I found it diverting, and after some very busy days traveling, a relaxing indulgence It s clearly aimed at a female audience, but as a guy reading it, I actually found the way the author reveals strategies women use against each other when competing for a man s attention to be instructive as well as amusing Lalla Bains and her dad are selling their crop dust business, but in the meantime Lalla hires a new pilot Dewey Treat to help them in their last season Unfortunately, Dewey ends up dead at their end of business party at least he died at the right themed party Lalla ends up taking care of Nancy, Dewey s widow, and brings her to her home because she

but in the meantime Lalla hires a new pilot Dewey Treat to help them in their last season Unfortunately, Dewey ends up dead at their end of business party at least he died at the right themed party Lalla ends up taking care of Nancy, Dewey s widow, and brings her to her home because she feels Nancy might also be in danger Of course Lalla s suspicions turn out to be founded, but there s no way a tiny little thing like her wedding is going to stop Lalla from snooping and figuring out who killed Dewey and why I m so happy that Lalla Bains is back This was my favourite book of the three and it s all there crime, mystery, suspense and great characters I really liked the glimpses into Lalla s thoughts as she goes back and forth with new theories Her dad completely lost in a house full of women as Lalla s great aunt and her cousin Pearlie come from Texas for her wedding is hilarious Nancy is a great character because you won t be able to decide if she is one of the good guys or one of the bad ones Nevertheless, the best new character is hidden under cousin Pearlie who starts out as a spoiled rich woman but who keeps growing on you, believe me It s also endearing to finally meet the woman behind Lalla s name and finding out how much they have in common You ll like this story, it has the right twists, the right amount of corpses, one bride and at least one goat Which according to the author has not been harmed in the making of the book Naturally I read it I wrote it Here re what reviewers are saying I m so happy that Lalla Bains is back This is was my favourite book of the

handcuffed beneath a truck What did she do Who left her there Is someone coming back to finish her off The prologue did an excellent job of drawing the reader in wanting to readChapter one begins stating 6 weeks earlier Lalla hires a temporary pilot for her crop dusting business that she and her father are in the process of shutting down at the end of the season in a few weeks Dewey Treat comes well recommended and she gives him the job Unfortunately he drops dead at a BBQ Lalla and her father are hosting at their ranch Due to the suspicious nature of his death the police arrest his wife Nancy Lalla is convinced her new friend has been set up and starts an investigation to find the real killer, who leaves a fewbodies in his wake before he is finally captured.A Dead Red Oleander was well written, good plot, good dialogue, fast moving story line, well developed, likeable characters, the kind of book that is a real page turner I liked the book and I would recommend it to others to read.Unfortunately this wonderful book was a victim of formatting and editing errors Punctuation errors, words spelled correctly that would not be caught in a computer spell check but used incorrectly, and extra words that messed up sentences He was a really was a fast learner I also had my doubts that 6 weeks passed between the prologue and first chapter The book moved along really quickly with no explained time lapses It seemed like only a few days passed between chapter one and the handcuffed under the truck scene I won t use the editing as an excuse to give a snarky review or lowball rating the novel because I really did like this book I was able to get past the sloppy editing to enjoy the well written story but I want to be honest in my review and give potential readers a heads up because not everyone wants to read a book with errors in each chapter I was tempted to give a 5 star review but I don t think it would be fair to potential readers who are expecting a good, clean copy I definitely recommend A Dead Red Oleander for people who love fast moving cozy mysteries.But I don t recommend it for readers who get really bugged by sloppy editing Will Lalla ever get married I have to know I definitely will be readingof this author s books
