Read A Review:

Keely Moreno, a Florida foot reflexologist who solves crimes in her spare time, surely must be one of the more unusual amateur sleuths in the genre.  Although she’s vowed to give up crime-solving, Keely just can’t say no to a woman who wants help in finding out who committed the murder that put her son behind bars.  The investigation once again puts Keel square in danger’s crosshairs, but our heroine is a little too resourceful to get herself in any real trouble. This second book in the series is written with a light touch and plenty of offbeat appeal.
