Argue, Fuss, Detect

Harriet Klausner

Hilarious sisters who argue, fuss and detect while debating what to do next. Bernie is a kick-butt-in-your-face while Libby is a girly-girl, but both are brave and together form a yin and yang terrific sleuthing team.

Humor, Sleuthing, Deliciousness

Good Mystery

J. Barrett
