Thoughts Can Be Murder Review by Vicki Wettach
I enjoy these books so much. I'm always disappointed as I get near the end -- I don't want them to finish. I like this author's technique of writing. She makes you care about all the characters, the good and the bad. And there are plenty of surprises. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, along comes another startling twist that throws you off. Very enjoyable reading.
