    1. Read this, a friend of mine said to me, handing me a book It s very odd Well, I m all for odd, and so I happily plunged into The Girl with the Phony Name which was not nearly so odd as I thought it might be I d say the applicable word is wonderful.And the people in it are wonderful They include Lucy McAlpin Trelaine maybe , an orphan and Harvard dropout who has spent her life looking for her parents, and Tak Wing pronounced Take Wing , a warm hearted entrepreneur whose Neat n Tidy Funeral Parlor [...]

    2. Lucy MacAlpin Trelaine has been searching for relatives ever since she learned she was an orphan But it s not until she lands a job with oriental undertaker Tak Wing who is always faultlessly attered in opera cape and top hat , that she begins to make progress on her quest Under Wing s wing, Lucy travels to Scotland disguised as a punk rocker, since she is wanted for murder , and they embark on a hilarious sort of genealogical research involving Fingons, ancestral castles, a silver Celtic brooch [...]

    3. The only thing Lucy has is her name taken from an ugly brooch found holding her blanket when she s rescued as an infant from an automobile crash When the brooch is returned to her just after she s lost her job, Lucy steps up the search for her parentage With the help of her boss, a determined funeral home director, Lucy heads to Scotland to see why a man who claimed to be her father tried to kill her.

    4. Charles Mathes is one of the most underrated mystery authors out there I stumbled upon him when a wonderfully helpful mystery bookstore employee suggested him to me, based on the other books I was buying This is the first in the not really a series series Following Mathes characters on their adventures is a joy.

    5. I got bored with the other thriller I was reading, so picked this up at Macs on a whim I loved it It was a cozy, and exactly what I needed, and strangely enough interesting that the book I was reading that was supposed to be all thrillery It had an element of fantasy, and I loved the heroine who made me snort at her behavior Good book.

    6. THE GIRL WITH THE PHONY NAME GMathes, Charles 1st bookThis story of a young woman orphaned as an infant and trying to find out who she is, is a fun, quirky and quite entertaining It s not much of a mystery, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

    7. I loved this book and will be looking for by this author.It s in the style of Mary Stewart romance mysteries, with humor.
