Too Rich and Too Thin: Not an Autobiography

By Barbara DeShong

From the back of the book:

“Pack your bags for Texas and prepare to meet the strangest family since that little Chainsaw Massacre incident. Psychologist Jessica LeFave will be your guide, but be forewarned, Dr. LeFave isn’t your average shrink, and though her wisecracking lawyer buddy, will try to keep Jessica out of trouble, he might not be able to save you, or himself.”

What a hoot! In this book, Dr. Jessica LaFave is asked to profile the killer of an author known for rewriting historical events into racy novels and movies. The author was a patient of the doctor’s husband at the time of his death. Jessica is convinced her husband’s death was no accident and she is determined to uncover the truth.

Barbara DeShong has a Ph.D. in psychology, which adds a great dimension to the story. She knows what she’s talking about and brings her knowledge to the murder mystery.

So, as the main character gathers clues, interviews potential witnesses and takes time out to ride her horse, the reader is drawn into this wonderful little story. It’s quite enjoyable and even those who aren’t mystery fans will enjoy it.
