Don't Take Any Wooden Nickels
The Million Dollar Mysteries
By Mindy Starns Clark 

     Callie Webber is recently widowed. She seeks solace in taking canoe trips on Chesapeake Bay and doing volunteer work with Advancing Attire, a church organization that provides quality clothes to women who want to enter the job market but can't afford to buy their own. She also investigates not-for-profit companies who desire to support the organization.

     Callie becomes involved with a young woman, Shayna, who is fresh from drug rehabilitation and comes to Advancing Attire for help. When her boyfriend's body is found in the trunk of her car, Shayna is charged with murder and appeals to Callie for help. While investigating, Callie becomes perilously involved in deceptions and international intrigue.

     This is a well-written, fast paced book, full of suspense, with a likeable cast of characters. It is. The dialogue sounds conversational and real. Callie Webber is a strong woman with a faith which sustains her through her travails. This is the first of the Million Dollar Mysteries. If the subsequent ones in this series are as excellent as this one, they will be a welcome addition to the genre.
