Secret of the Painted Lady: a Danger Cove Renovation Mystery - Christina A. Burke, Elizabeth Ashby Carr

The MC is grating on my nerves.  She was clearly raised in a better-than-middle-class home and talks like she's trailer trash and puts down a guy who dresses well and owns a flower shop as gay.  And yet he still tries to get her to go out with him.  If I was him, I'd tell her to try putting the tampon in vertically next time instead of horizontally.


Trying to push past it, the plot is intriguing so far but not sure if I can make it through the book without hunting down the MC and beating her with a hammer.
