    One thought on “The Good Daughter”

    1. Mama-mia! An Italian family, where the Good Daughter has to eat with Mom every Sunday. And doesn't resent it much.This was a mystery story that was a little too obviously crafted, too obviously a formula book. No surprises here. The only pleasure to me was the bits about her family and the growth of her business, which I found a little unbelievable, but given the tight family ties, maybe not. Also, I suppose her being an ex-marine did qualify her to get out of some scrapes, although she convenie [...]

    2. THE GOOD DAUGHTER - G+Lee Wendi - 1st in Angela Matelli seriesEx-Marine Angela Matelli returns to her hometown of Boston to start a career as a private investigator. Her first client is retired policeman Tom Grady, who hires Angela to investigate his daughter's boyfriend. What starts out as a routine background check soon becomes a tangle of murder, cover-up, and intrigue when Grady is found dead outside his favorite bar.I really enjoyed this. Very Boston. I would definitely read more by her.

    3. Another great find by my bff Amy!!!!This was kind of a weird book. It started out really fast and with no wait on the suspense so I was sure that it was going to stall out in the end. I am glad to report that I was totally wrong. It kept me turning the pages all the way through to the end. Lee even had the side storylines well worked out. I can kind of compare it to a subdued Stephanie Plum series. Lee definitely is going to get Janet Evanovich a run for her money. A must read for all mystery fa [...]

    4. For a first book, this is really good. An easy read, likeable characters. Parts of the plot are a bit of a stretch, but I was willing to look past those. The Angela Matelli character reminds me a bit of Kinsey from the Sue Grafton's alphabet series. A no-nonsense kind of woman who takes care of herself.

    5. This was so much fun to read since I live so close to where the story took place! I was smiling at every mention of places and streets that were known to me.But besides all that the story was really great The lead character is a private detective named Angela, and she had me laughing and coming back for more!I'm looking forward to reading more from this series soon. :)

    6. Short fast read. Published in Boston around the time I used to live there and enjoyed the name dropping of area landmarks (including the No Name Restaurant).
