Family Values (Leo Waterman mystery series) by G.M. Ford
I’ve read and and enjoyed all the books in this series. I’d call them traditional mysteries with a lot of humor and heart. The writing is engaging and colorful, the language is funny, and Leo is a great character. They’re set in Seattle, and the local descriptions are terrific.
As the book opens, it’s Valentines Day and Leo has come home to Seattle a day early to surprise his girlfriend. When he arrives at her condo, he finds her passed out on the floor and her apartment full of gas. He manages to save her, only to discover she’s had a major career problem while he was out of town and the cops assume she tried to commit suicide. She didn’t, and Leo is determined to find out who is after both her career and her life.
If you like traditional mysteries with humor and heart and/or mystery novels set in Seattle, you might want to give this book a try. I liked it a lot.
TIP: If you have Amazon Prime, I think this book and some of the earlier books in this series will be available to you FREE through the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library.
