This funny, touching character-driven mystery is superbly narrated by Jane Oppenheimer. The story is anchored by three strong female characters: Los Angeles real estate mogul Lana Rubicon; her adult daughter, Beth, with whom Lana has a prickly relationship; and Beth's teenage daughter, Jack. Lana is diagnosed with cancer and moves in with Beth and Jack in their small-town home. Then Jack finds a body. Oppenheimer is outstanding. She captures the story's humor without being cutesy or cloying and does not falter in her portrayals of the three main characters or the story's secondary characters. She is appropriately and realistically expressive. Sometimes her voice is just slightly rough, especially at the end of sentences. Oppenheimer's fine performance adds to the fun of this story.
