    1. Favorite Quotes:A transparent haze of colorless hair exposed the shape of the tiny woman’s skull while sagging puffs of flesh made her appear to be melting.Photographs were snapped as if baby Jack were the reincarnation of Elvis.‘My mother doesn’t cook,’ Chelsea tried to explain. ‘She makes food.’My Review:I could kick myself for not noticing this series until it reached the eighth installment, but while prior knowledge was not necessary as the book stood well on its own, I am sure I [...]


    2. For Better or Worse by Donna Huston Murray is A Ginger Barnes Main Line Mystery (Book Eight). Ginger Barnes, known as a problem solver, is a widow with her son in college and her daughter is newly married (empty nester). Ginger is installing tile in the kitchen of her daughter’s new home and soon finds herself involved in two of the neighbor’s problems. Mrs. Maisie Zumstein is an elderly woman who has been acting strangely. She dumped a bag of bricks out of upper window (starling Ginger) and [...]


    3. Overall this was a good book. There were a few things that I did not like in it. I found Gin, the main character of this mystery novel to be a little annoying. She likes to stick her nose into other people’s business and then tries to fix them to how she sees fit. Yes, there are real people like that in the world but I find them annoying too. :-) However, that aspect of the character does not completely overwhelm Gin. She does have other likable qualities and the annoying ness is what advances [...]


    4. I received an ARC ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Ginger Barnes is working on a DIY project at her daughter's house when she gets involved with some of the neighbors. One is a frazzled young mother with a controlling husband. The other is a young man who is helping to care for his grandmother, who ends up in the hospital after a fall down some stairs. Meanwhile, after Ginger's best friend tries to set her up with a new fella, Ginger finds herself working as a babysitter for [...]


    5. When should you mind your own beeswax and when should you butt in?Ginger Barnes is a Main Line woman of a certain age, recently widowed with grown kids who considers herself the consummate problem-solver (and definitely not a buttinski). Ginger knows the right thing to do when presented with heavy issues - she tackles them head on because helping others is the right thing to do. Ginger is helping her daughter with a home repair project and gets involved with two neighbors: an elderly woman with [...]


    6. Faced with an excess number (hmmm, I'm thinking anything above zero might qualify here) of overbearing, obnoxious and possessive men, several perfectly nice but easily cowed women, and a pair of toddlers, the Law of Awareness suddenly comes into play. You know the one. Having not seen too many green Toyotas on the road, that's the color you choose for your new Celica; and suddenly every other car you see happens to be a green Celica. This is my very first Ginger Barnes mystery although it is the [...]


    7. The is the first Ginger Barnes mystery that I have read, and I enjoyed it so much that I downloaded the first in the “Ginger” mysteries – and liked it just as much!Ginger Barnes is a thoroughly likable heroine, someone with whom I could imagine being friends - nosy without being over the top, as the heroines are in so many “cosy” mysteries and her dog is a delight! Having said that, this is not really a “cosy” as such and the plot tackles a very serious social problem – domestic [...]


    8. I spent my time in this book exasperated by Ginger Barnes and her tendency to interfere in the lives of others, and in admiration of her willingness to do so.There is another plot strand: Ginger agrees to take on some childminding while a young mother seeks work. However the child's father is at first opposed to the scheme and then reluctant in his agreement. Gin has the feeling that he is following her and watching her.The three main plot lines intermingle nicely with the connecting point being [...]


    9. For Better or Worse is a riveting story that will leave you begging for more.The main character, Gin, is a down to earth, independent woman who isn't afraid to stick her nose in other people's business.While doing a DIY project for her daughter, Gin encounters some strange goings on. An elderly neighbor is throwing bricks out her window, a young neighbor is finding it difficult to live with a controlling husband, and of course, there is another set of characters who are just plumb nuts.I grabbed [...]


    10. A four-star read. This book does have abuse situations. They are handled okay, but I hadn't expected that. Ginger is an okay character. I didn't dislike her, but she wasn't my favorite at first. She did grow on me after a bit. It is the 8th book in a series, but for this book that didn't have any bearing on this book, it stands alone without a problem. My copy came via Net Galley. My review is all my own left of my own free will.


    11. There are several stories at play in this novel, including domestic violence, elder abuse, widowhood, child custody, and dealing with an empty nest. What could be a recipe for disaster is actually well-handled by the main character, Gin, as if it were all in a day's work to juggle so many hot issues. Gin assists family, friends and neighbors in a kind and insightful manner, demonstrating that paying attention and not rushing forward can prove most beneficial in many situations.


    12. I read this ARC for a honest review from NetGalley. This is my first book from this author, it was good not your traditional cozy,spouse abuse,elder abuse,I will go back & read the first book since This was #8 ,I felt kinda lost with the characters. I love the cover,it attracted my attention from the start.


    13. A good read for My 1st book from this Author. I usually don't read books from a series out of order, but I wasn't lost at all. I would love to read more from this Author. I really liked the story and the characters especially Ginger Barnes. This was an attention keeping story with a bit of suspense.


    14. Source: Netgalley in exchange for a honest reviewA cozy mystery that is something more. A good view on social problem like domestic violence and illness with a lot of empathy for the victims.It was my first book from this author but I will go a look for other one. Not what I was expecting but an interesting discovery


    15. Several plot lines involving various neighbors. Many issues are resolved but the ending still seemed abrupt. Nice to see someone care about others and actually get involved in their lives in order to help better their situations. The author provided a copy via NetGalley for my voluntary review.


    16. I loved this book. First book I read in the series. I love Ginny. She not only loves her dog, but cares about social issues. Looking forward to reading other books by Donna. Also, really loved all the characters.


    17. For better, definitely. The main character, Gin is interesting and very entertaining. A fun and fast read. Will be looking for the earlier books in the seriesThank you to the publisher, author, and NetGalley for the opportunity to preview the book.


    18. A tense mystery with many twists and turns. Gin has grown into a better character without her husband. (Sorry I know that is not kind.) She is more resourceful and I like her better. In this story she tries to help a battered woman and learns the harsh reality of domestic abuse.


    19. Great book. I really enjoyed the characters and plots. It was thrilling, scary, moving, and I could not put it down. Excellent writing. I want to read all the books in the series now.


    20. A Fun ReadI enjoyed this book because the characters were so varied and I kept wondering what would happen next. A few smiles and a few laugh out loud situations.


    21. An excellent, enjoyable and enlightening read! I have only recently become acquainted with Ginger Barnes and her amateur sleuthing ways -- I think it's going to be an enjoyable acquaintance, too! I found her to be charming, entertaining, and a fun character, yet, a character grounded in realities of life.Donna Huston Murray has taken a topic that is whispered about by many, denied by many and suffered by many. Spousal/partner abuse. Knowledge and awareness need to be brought to the forefront so [...]

    23. Not a cozy mystery as this was more seriously written. More in the vein of Sue Grafton as it dealt with Alzheimer's and Spousal abuse plus a bit of stalking etc. I enjoyed the book and felt it dealt well with the above issues. I definitely intend to read more of this series now (I got this one free from a giveaway).
