My Comments:

I enjoyed this (as expected since I like Jenn McKinlay's mysteries).  The characters were interesting.  I liked Maggie the other Good Buy Girls.  I really appreciated the idea of the group and having such a circle of friends.  The overall idea had my mind flashing to that Extreme Couponing show.  and I enjoyed the Thrifty Tips at the end.  They can be both useful and give some additional insight into the characters.

The mystery was nice, especially since the suspect the amateur sleuths work to prove innocent is the head librarian.  Solving of the murder was wrapped up perhaps a tad more abruptly than I would have liked, and the killer was someone I suspected much earlier on in the story.

Overall, I thought this was a nice start to a new series. I look forward to reading A Deal to Die For, due out Dec. 2012.
