TITLE: THE THIN WOMAN
AUTHOR: DOROTHY CANNELL
Details: nr. 1 Ellie Haskell Mystery
When Ellie Simons is invited to a family gathering she despairs. She's over-weight and single and knows that her family will be only too happy to point out all her short comings.
Enter Eligibility Escorts and Bentley T. Haskell, hired to be Ellie's fiance for the weekend.
Shortly after the weekend, Ellie's uncle dies, and it turns out that she and her make belief fiance are to inherit the bulk provided they can solve a mystery and uncover a treasure within 6 months as well as achieve some other goals.
But it appears that someone is determined to make sure they fail. And while their fake romance could turn real, there appear to be obstacles to that as well.
A mystery without a murder, but several attempts. A fun read with good characters. I will read more.
