Abi Button gets involved with the lazy nephews and nieces of their elderly uncle who lived in the creepy house at the far end of her road. Isaac Whittard Magritte Newton, to give him his full name, has set a cryptic clue in his will for the siblings to solve. The will says the first nephew or niece who can solve the clue is going to be extremely wealthy, but the puzzle see Abi Button gets involved with the lazy nephews and nieces of their elderly uncle who lived in the creepy house at the far end of her road. Isaac Whittard Magritte Newton, to give him his full name, has set a cryptic clue in his will for the siblings to solve. The will says the first nephew or niece who can solve the clue is going to be extremely wealthy, but the puzzle seems unbreakable. The old man once set crossword puzzles for two of the national newspapers, and other puzzles for various magazines. Abi, with her modest skills in cryptic crosswords, has to admit defeat. Also on Abi’s mind, perhaps as a matter of greater importance than solving the clue that will help four squabbling siblings, is her developing friendship with junior solicitor Danny Wells. She wonders if she has at last found the right man. Melanie Upton ‒ Abi’s co-owner of Button Up coffee shop ‒ assures Abi that this one is definitely a keeper. But as Abi points out, Melanie says the same thing about every man Abi gets to know.

    This was my first Lizzie Lewis book. It stars Ali Button, a 32 year old co-owner of Button Up Coffee Shop. Her boyfriend, Danny Wells is a junior solicitor. Most of the book centers around the cryptic clue in Isaac Whittard Magritte Newton's will. Newton left instructions that whichever one of his four nieces and nephews solved the riddle, would become wealthy. For me, this book didn't seem to have a good flow to it. I did enjoy the characters and the plot. This was my first Lizzie Lewis book. It stars Ali Button, a 32 year old co-owner of Button Up Coffee Shop. Her boyfriend, Danny Wells is a junior solicitor.

    Another good book only better This is another interesting mystery and good romance. I like the way the author portrays the different stages of spiritual growth and makes it an easy part of the story.

    Trying to figure out whether I like Abi Button Rather predictable but an easy quick read. This is the second book in the series I've read and seeing as the series was free I feel it's a good read. Trying to figure out whether I like Abi Button Rather predictable but an easy quick read.

    Very cool mystery! An older neighbor passes away & his will is definitely something to behold! He has 2 nephews & 2 nieces. He calls them spineless scroungers & many other not so nice words. In reality, one is very different & sweet. A must read for romance & mystery lovers.

    Low 3 The puzzle element made this one a bit better than the first. Also the MC seemed less annoying here. But it was still pretty blah to read and didn't function well as a distraction for me.

    Good book This books does deserve to be read. I found it a bit of a chore to get started, but once I did it was like okey an oyster with pearl of a good and amusing plot.

    Good The humor was off, and the editing was poorly done. In the beginning of the book, it seemed that Waters and Wells was interchangeable. The book is actually pretty good with likable characters and an interesting plot. Just not my kind of book.
