Take the Monkeys and Run by Karen Cantwell

I won this book from Library Thing's Member Giveaways.

This book was so funny and quirky and I loved it!  It was also a very good mystery as well.  What more could you ask from a book!

This is the story of a housewife who was outside with her cat in the wee hours of the morning and saw something going on at the house next door.  This wouldn't have been odd, except that the house next door had been empty for almost 30 years. She decides to go take a look and ends up getting herself and a friend who comes out to help into heaps of trouble by some pretty shady people.  This happens the week after her husband of almost 20 years leaves her out of the blue, claiming that he needed space and leaves her to deal with their 3 children by herself. She calls in a friend from California who jumps onto the next flight to help her with her mystery.

This is a very quick, interesting and funny book, that I immensely enjoyed in 2 days.  I liked how Ms Cantwell tied the beginning to the ending in a very smooth, methodical way.  I would recommend this book to anybody...very cute book!
