A Basket of Trouble is the first book that I have read by Groundwater, and I found that I really enjoyed it. Despite being book three in the series, I was able to just dive right in and get caught up in this book's story and mystery. Groundwater does a great job with her character development, and this book has Claire and her brother needing to face the sibling rivalry that has haunted them since childhood as well as the deep bond that they share as their mother's health worsens. Claire is a great heroine, and I love that it was her love for her brother that made her determined to solve this mystery. The book is full of enough twists and turns to keep the reader's interest, and I really enjoyed the book. I look forward to reading more books in this series.
