Quincy Mac is a maid and as she cleans a customers house she finds a dead body. Next thing she knows she is a suspect. By Quincy wont stand for that, she decided to find out who the murderer is and to clear her name.
As fast paced, murder mystery, with a bit of humor and romance. I liked the story line and I liked Quincy. There were quiet a few laugh out loud moments. I recommend to those who like a light who-done-it with humor and romance.
Steamed kept me laughing. It was quite funny! However, while Quincy was amusing and generally likeable, she was also--a ditz. While 38 years old, the mother of three and a business owner, it seems Quincy must have something on the ball. But, that either is not the case, or Quincy prefers to give the impression that she is just empty-headed and foolish. While the depth of her silliness might be understandable (I suppose) for a teen, even tolerable (though barely) for a young adult, it was not at all attractive on a grown woman. It was no wonder that others, including Quincy's own parents, treated Quincy as though she was not all that capable. . . . So, the story was funny--but it would have been a lot funnier if Quincy was either: (1) younger, not the mother of three nearly grown children and a businesswoman from whom you would expect more; or (2) not so incredibly foolish. Having said that, if you want a good laugh and you don't mind a largely "vacant" heroine, you will enjoy this one!

Don't get me wrong, it is not a comedy. It is a mystery with a well paced investigation that has clues sprinkled in throughout the book. You will likely solve it before the heroine, but the way it is set up, you will enjoy seeing her work out the truth. Without spoilers I can say it has a good ending, and you will be waiting for the next book in the series.
I bought this book this afternoon, and did not put it down until I finished it. I have always known Holly can write stories that can give you the full gamut of emotions, but have never seen her make a character so wonderfully off the wall as Quincy Mac. I have to suspect that Quincy is a favorite character of Holly's because the love of her shows in the book. When a good writer loves the and cares for the characters in her book, it shows, and the book becomes something more than words on a page... it becomes something special... it becomes a rare treat to read.
I look forward to reading "Dusted"--that should be fun!
