In the intrest of full-disclosure, I have to tell you that Alice Duncan is a good friend of mine. I've read her books, so I can tell you with all honesty and objectivity that Alice rawks!
She just got this awesome review from Booklist for her latest Daisy Majesty book. I've read and loved Daisy, and you will, too, if you give this series a try. Get a Daisy book. You'll be glad you did!
