Phoebe rejects the idea at first but then sees this as a chance to start over.
Business is barely up and running when a corpse is left in the newly established Artemis Agency. A foreboding warning soon follows. The sisters don't know whether to be terrified or intrigued. As the bodies begin piling up, Phoebe and Phineas get caught up in a case of conspiracy and scandal that once haunted small-town Lair.

Humor - check.
This book had it all for a little one, and it packed a mighty punch! I thought the authors were quite clever in their writing style, and found myself giggling outright. I was dumbfounded with the twist in the end, and had no idea it was there! Nicely played ladies!!
The characters are molded in such a way, that you don't have to be a woman, let alone a sister to appreciate the story. Men will completely love the tale of these two relentless ladies, sniffing where they shouldn't. You will get lost in the story right till the very end!
Definitely on my recommendation list, and I do hope I see more, like a series?! That would be sublime!
