I've only recently discovered Cannell's Ellie Haskell series and am quite thrilled with the find. I've just finished this one (How to Murder Your Mother In Law) and was again wildly entertained. At times while reading, especially during the coversations between Ellie and Mrs. M (a character introduced in earlier books), I laughed out loud (much to the amusement of my son). And the interactions between various women in the town and their mothers-in-law will strike a cord with many a reader. I can't wait to dive into the next adventure of Ellie (and her wonderful husband, adorable twins, and faithful cat).
