The Odelia Grey Mystery series is a favorite of mine. I find the characters well developed and realistic. The series has a great deal of humor and the mysteries are usually well done. The character of Odelia Grey is what really drives this series. She is not the stereotypical “big” girl. She is confident, but yet has enough vulnerability to not be brash or arrogant. She is a plus sized woman and yet still has sex appeal and also feels sexy.
I just finished Twice as Dead and I did enjoy it. I would say that it was not my favorite of the series, that title still goes to Too Big to Miss, the first book from the series. The mystery seems more serious in this episode than in the previous books. There were twists and turns and visits from characters from previous books that add depth to the story. Recommended reading for cozy mystery fans.
