The Thin Woman

What fun! I did enjoy this book! The Thin Woman, by Dorothy Cannell, has humor -lots of humor- in its story of a "full-figured" woman who hires "devastatingly attractive" Ben from Eligibility Escorts to play her beau at the family reunion. There's an interesting and well-constructed plot, believable and likable characters, a treasure hunt, home renovation, art appreciation, and good food. I didn't want it to end, but I see there are others about these characters so I'll go buy them.

The Thin Woman is on the list of 100 Favorite Mysteries of the 20th Century as selected by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association's online members.
