Rating: 3 Cups
Emma Winberry is a slim active woman in her early sixties. She is active in the local opera company. She has just moved from her large house in the suburbs to a condo in Chicago with her love, Nate Sandler.
Nate is attractive and balding and very protective of his Sparrow, as he calls Emma. He is very responsible and enjoys the same things as Emma, making their relationship a very successful one.
Emma and Nate sign up to be extras in a B-minus movie. They are to be guests at a wedding but extra work proves to be very dangerous for Emma. Suspicious new neighbors, some homeless people, and a troubled teen add to the drama.
This is an entertaining mystery with two very normal people as the main characters. Nate has a lot of common sense and despite Emma’s conversations with her Guardian Angel, she is pretty average also. The reader will enjoy reading about two senior citizens caught up in situations beyond their ken and their triumph over adversity.
