Read my full review @ http://bit.ly/VLgj1dMy rating: 4.5 StarsMy opinion: One of the reasons I love reviewing books is that I am introduced to new authors and series. Ms. Hart's Nora Gavin series is a prime example of this. I found this series to be incredibly inviting, smart and well written. Readers who love the works of Jefferson Bass and Elly Griffiths will find welcoming arms in the Nora Gavin series.I did find that Ms. Hart is very character driven in this series, so I did find that there were some very significant lapses in my knowledge of the characters' "past". Those will be filled in when I go back and start the series from the beginning.
