I do enjoy the puzzle lady series! I have read this book before, but the books are definitely worth re-reading from time to time. I don't like crossword puzzles, but the characters are well written and likeable.

Sherry is on an African safari for her honeymoon, so the Puzzle Lady has to find someone to solve the crosswords that keep showing up, although she can do the sudoku herself. There are just enough scary parts to allow you to catch your breath from laughing so much. Crosswords and sudoku plus answers are included in the book, if you want to do them yourself.
