(E–pub READ) [Dead Madonna A Loon Lake Mystery]
Oves Her characters are likeable and the stories are funThis book had the sam Yummy read it in one bite I enjoy the Loon Lake series but found some of the details in this book to be implausibleFor example someone was opening bank accounts in four states with counterfeit cheues using stolen identities then immediately withdrawing the cash No bank is going to deposit a cheue for thousands of dollars then cash out before the cheue *clears even if it is supposedly drawn the account of *even if it is supposedly drawn on the account of major companyA few other things just appeared be off in this book
