Why this book?:

I've read the first book, Flowerbed of State in 2011 (no review, but it was part of a reading challenge).  I enjoyed it, but hadn't gotten around to reading any further in the series.  I was once again at work, going to lunch, and hadn't brought any books with me.  So I browsed, saw the 3rd book, Oak and Dagger, and decided to see if I could find this one to catch up.  And there it was.


I did not remember much about the 1st book.  The main character, Casey, annoyed me here and there when she took chances and made assumptions (did she ever!) that I thought were too much.  And I did guess the bad guy from as soon as a murder was discovered.  But despite all that, I did enjoy the series and plan on reading the 3rd book (which I checked out as soon as I finished reading this one).
