Deep Trouble by Jean Erhardt

Today on bookaholic I bring you a great little mystery by  previously unknown, to me, author Jean Erhardt.

This is not a long book but packed within its pages is a lot of fun and laughter. The mystery is good, but where this book really comes into its own is the characterisation. The characters are larger than life, and I actually mean bigger than that. They are so eccentric I wondered how the author managed to think them up. Yet they still, somehow, mange to be loveable and I loved each and every one of them. They leapt off the pages an in to my mind and I could imagine them perfectly. The main character, Kim Claypoole is a fabulous character who I am looking forward to seeing again in future books. 

When I said earlier that this book was fun I meant laugh out loud funny. The tears were streaming down my face at times. It was a good job I was home alone or they might have been carting me off to the funny farm. 

This is a great little book and I would certainly recommend it. I will be looking out for future books in the series.
