Booklist Review

Amos continues the story of Monique, the irresistibly funny heroine of her debut novel, Getting Personal BKL My 1 03. This time around Monique, now an investigative reporter, serves as bridesmaid at her mother's wedding, then has to contend with her shy maiden aunt and cowboy grandfather, who move in next door to keep an eye on her mother's place while she's on her honeymoon. Fortunately, they don't put the kibosh on her hot and heavy relationship with Jake Dube, but Monique does have to cope with her aunt's decision to transform herself from a sparrow into a peacock, using Monique as an example. Monique worries that her mother will come home to a sister she doesn't recognize, and it's a bit much when her aunt insists on acting as a partner while Monique investigates one mystery after another. Once again Amos presents a fast-paced, thoroughly enjoyable story that will leave readers wanting yet another helping of Monique and her menagerie. --Maria Hatton Copyright 2004 Booklist
