    Story

    This is a good start to a good series. The characters are well written and likeable. The plot has enough twists and turns to keep you from guessing the ending. I gave the story three stars because the author spent too much time in some areas of the book going on and on.

    The two cousins, Mercy and Shirley, were so annoying yet they added lots of humor to the story. The narrator did a good job giving voices to all of the characters.
    This was worth the credit and I look forward to the next book in the series.

    Story

    The last few books I have bought by new to me authors have bombed. But, I finally got lucky with this one.The characters are spunky, likeable, and believable. The story was well plotted and entertaining. The only thing I didn't like about it was the narrators voice. She did an okay job with the southern accent but her voice made some of the characters whiny. But overall, this is a very interesting and solid mystery. I bought the next book before I was finished listening to this one. If I like the others I might try Mary Kay Andrew's other books. I would definitely recommend this book.

    After 10 years of cleaning up the dirt on Atlanta's streets, Callahan Garrity is trading in her badge for a broom and a staff of house cleaners. But, though the uniform is a little different, Callahan soon finds herself right back in the middle of a mystery when a client's pretty, pious 19-year-old nanny is gone...along with the jewelry, silver, and a few rather sensitive real estate documents. Before she knows it, the meticulous Callahan is up to her elbows in a case involving illicit love triangles, crooked business deals, long-distance scams, and a dead body.

    IN A WITCH'S WARDROBE is a well-written, fast-paced supernatural cozy mystery with a little romance and a little action. I wish there was a little more romance for Lilly, but, perhaps that will be in future books. Lilly is slowly realizing what she is capable of and finding her place in San Francisco. The next book seems to offer more challenges for Lily. I can't wait.

Daniel Mcafee's greatest hits:
  • The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1

    "What a Terrific Book"

    Overall

    I love Connelly's Bosch novels and normally, an author of gets better with age. Having said that, I wasn't expecting this first book in the Bosch series to be as good as the later novels in the series.

    This book is probably one of my top 2 or 3 favorites!!

    Connelly manages to weave together a very intriguing and complex story!!

    I kept saying to myself, "This Story is going to have SOOOOOO many holes", but he masterfully ties up all the loose ends.

    The reader does a good job as well.

    Highly recommended!!

  • The Black Ice: Harry Bosch Series, Book 2: Harry Bosch, Book 2

    "Good Listen"

    Overall

    I'm a Michael Connelly fan so I couldn't wait to listen to these first Bosch novels recently added to the Audible Library.

    The first book, The Black Echo, was TERIFFIC!

    This one is good, but definitely not as good as the first.

    Like the first novel, there were a lot of complexities in this story, and Connelly somehow managed to tie them up nicely.

    But this story simply didn't grab me like the first book and other Bosch novels.

    I would rank this one in the bottom half of Connelly novels I've listened to, but the below average Connelly novel is still above average compared to other offerings.

    The story is still "can't put down" at times - and a recommended listen.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    "Pleasant Surprise"

    Overall

    This is a very good book.

    It is complex and there are a lot of characters. Combined with the fact that the names and cities are Swedish, made it a little harder for me to follow.

    I finally started taking notes, and recommend you do the same.

    The story kept me guessing and anxious throughout, and is definitely a "Can't put down" book at times.

    The reader does a fabulous job!

    I will definitely purchase the next 2 in the series when available.


  • The Concrete Blonde: Harry Bosch Series, Book 3

    "Connelly Fan"

    Overall

    I was so happy when Audible added these earlier Connelly / Bosch books!

    I guess the only reason I didn't give this one a 5-star rating is that I am using the first "The Black Echo" as a benchmark.

    This is a good book, but the first one was Terriffic!

    Dick Hill, the narrator, did a good job as usual(although he does kind of butcher female voices and weepy scenes on occasion)

    If you're a Connelly fan you'll really like this book.

    Definitely Recommended!!

  • "Great Mystery / Romance Series..LOV..."

    10 of 10 helpful votes

    I'm not much of a T.V. watcher, but listening to these books (I've now downloaded ALL of them) has driven me to the damn boob tube to get more of Longmire.

    As a former Wyoming resident, I love seeing the high plains-even though they are filmed in New Mexico, not Wyoming..the feeling is the same.

    I recently watched an episode of History Detectives that went thru the mapping of the southwest following the Mexican-American War and learned a lot about the history of this beautiful, if stark, land. Not that that has anything to do with the books, but it adds to the enjoyment of it. Theres a lot of un-commented on back story in the Southwest that is interesting to know.

    The fantastic George Guidall does his usual wonderful job of expressing the character in the story-he can do NO wrong.

    I really recommend this series to those that want tight plot lines, terse writing and a bit of romance in their mysteries. It's not Tony Hillerman, but then Hillerman isn't available on Audible-which is a real shame.

    Thom and Jennifer Harlow are the perfect couple, with three perfect children. They maybe two of the biggest mega movie stars in the world, but they're also great parents, philanthropists, and just all-around good people. When they disappear without a word from their ranch, facts are hard to find. They live behind such a high wall of security and image control that even world-renowned Private Investigator Jack Morgan can't get to the truth.
