This was a rec from my Facebook group when I asked for light/humorous reads.

Agatha. She's young and frightened. But no one will know it. She's ambitious. To those who don't know her she's, "Scary Agatha." To those who know her she has a heart of gold. In this small story she meets a murder suspect who she feels is innocent. As the story progresses we see her get her feet o

I especially liked how the ending was foreshadowing the first book (I don't think that's a spoiler, as it has nothing to do with the cas Leggi tutto
