Bea Abbott is apparently still trying to find her footing after she decides to run the Abbott Agency (which doesn't do murder). She ignores Oliver's attempts to help her straighten out her Inland Revenue debt, although he deals with that and various other situations magnificently without her help. He's much more mature than she is at times. Bea and the other characters seem to solve bits of the thefts, killings, and threats of violence without reference to one another--very little teamwork going on here. The problems thrown at her are exciting, get resolved satisfactorily, but I would hope for a bit more strategic planning in upcoming books. However, for those looking for a riveting Christian oriented mystery, this would be a great choice.
