The Fog Ladies are certainly an interesting cast of characters! This diverse group of women is by far my favorite part of the book. Some of the women are more likable than others. My favorites are Mrs. Noonan and Mrs. Gordon. Mrs. Noonan is such a steadying influence within the group. She is very level headed and a much-needed source of comfort for Sarah as she struggles through her internship. Mrs. Noonan is also a wonderful cook and shares her delicious dishes freely. It is one of the ways she shows she cares about those around her. I could practically smell the food she prepared as I read.

Mrs. Gordon is such a sweet, caring soul. She has a gentleness about her that is very endearing. As with Mrs. Noonan, Mrs. Gordon cares deeply for those in need, though she doesn’t have Mrs. Noonan’s confidence. However, Mrs. Gordon under goes a bit of a transformation during the course of the story. I won’t spill too many details, but I will say that Mrs. Gordon finds herself in a situation where she needs to take on an unexpected responsibility. Rather than shrink from the challenge, she rises to the occasion and blossoms in her new found role.

Mrs. Carmichael is also an extremely colorful character! She’s a terrible gossip and is as bold and brash as Mrs. Gordon is timid. I couldn’t help but laugh at her antics, especially when she discovers the joy of Starbucks! She can’t resist poking her head into other people’s business and this gets her into some serious trouble. Unfortunately, I don’t think Mrs. Carmichael has learned her lesson.

I must admit I was able to solve the mystery before I reached the end of the book. There were a few false, though very interesting leads, but I was able to sort through the facts and get to the heart of the matter. I still enjoyed watching Sarah and the rest of the Fog Ladies unravel the mystery. I was on the edge of my seat wondering when and how they would finally fit the pieces of the puzzle together. I also really enjoyed the ending. Again, I can’t say much without spoiling the plot, but I will say an unexpected hero played an integral part in bringing down the culprit.

I had so much fun reading The Fog Ladies. Fans of cozy mysteries would do well to pick up a copy of this thoroughly entertaining book.
