    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.

Fortunately Pippa and Jon Comfort's Sheer Comfort Inn is about to open, and the couple has offered some locals a free night as a trial run. But it won't be so easy to sleep after Tricia makes two startling discoveries: Pippa's murdered body in the backyard, and the fact that Pippa's husband, Jon, is actually Harry Tyler, a man Tricia loved - and believed dead - for nearly 20 years. Though Harry is the prime suspect, Tricia doesn't believe him capable of murder, even though he's led a life of lies.

    "My favorite author does it again!!"

    Performance
    Story

    I just can't get enough of C J Box's writing! I've often said that a good book for me, is one with a great story line, or one with great writing, Box's books are always the best of both! Each successive Joe Picket, Wyoming Fish and Game Warden, novel just gets better and better. Characterization, descriptions, conflicts between good and evil, and the pull between legal justice and moral justice are enhanced by stories that connect to headlines of the day. Box mixes each mystery, with a continuing family story, and a fictional accounting of non-fiction reality.

    When one of Joe's friends is accused of murder, Joe becomes involved in ways that he'd never imagined. Lyle, and his wife, have finally gotten a piece of land on which to build their own home. Permits in hand, Lyle begins grading the land when EPA employees come and demand that he return the land to exactly as he's found it previously. The fine for not doing so will be $70,000 a day. And why is this happening? Lyle is told it's because his land has been declaimed 'protected wetlands'. With no water at all on his land, he questions this declaration. But no one at the EPA has any paperwork , nor are they answering his repeated phone calls. So this story begins, and ends in disaster when two EPA agents are murdered, and an all out man hunt is begun by the EPA to "kill the murderer."

    This case is based on a real case in North Dakota, that bends credulity. There are other actions , also based on "truth" that just may blow your mind. Joe is caught up in the manhunt, as determined by the Governor, but the more and more that things progress, Joe begins to realize that there is something more that just doesn't make sense. An edge of your seat story keeps the suspense until the very last page!! I think I love you C J Box!!!! Never stop telling stories in books!!

  • A Fatal Winter: Max Tudor, Book 2

    "Reincarnation Christie updated to 21st century!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I loved this book for so many reasons. I believe Malliet must be the reincarnation of Agatha Christie and some popular present day satirist/ comedian. Max Tutor is a handsome Anglican priest who used to be a MI-5 agent. His church is located in the small English village of Nether Monkslip, with all the foibles and characters one would expect to inhabit such a village. But Malliet has updated their thoughts and actions to fit expertly into the twenty-first century.

    Max is a combination of Hercule Poirot, Father Brown, and Sherlock Holmes. As an Anglican Priest, his life is further complicated by his 'love interest', the beautiful spiritualist and town's herbalist. He is also haunted by the death of his MI-5 partner who had taken Max's place in their last mission together, where Paul was killed.

    This second in the Father Max Tutor series, ( Wicked Autumn was book one) finds Max being asked to go to an English Manor house to 'observe' the remaining family gathered there for a Christmas holiday. The Lord of the manor has been murdered, just before his twin sister died of natural causes. Of course the family is full of 'characters' that have many idiosyncrasies of their own. The interactions between these characters is written wonderfully, with stereotypes and additional characteristics that were a feast for this reader!! AND---the mystery was wonderfully done also. Never guessed till the end, but the clues had been placed expertly throughout the book !

    I had read book one and enjoyed it very much, but book two was exponentially better. So looking forward to reading Malliet's take on spring and summer with Father Max and more mysteries!!

  • Pagan Spring: A Max Tudor Novel, Book 3

    "Great book for Agatha Christie fans!"

    Story

    PAGAN SPRING returns us to the small English village of Nether Monkslip where Max Tutor is an ex MI5 agent turned Anglican priest. His love life with the controversial spiritualist, Awena Owins, continues to blossom. Max also steps into a new possible murder. Thaddeus Bottle has moved back to a hugely renovated mansion in his family's home village. But humble he is not. Everything is about him and his desires. He desire is to be the center of everything, and his recent dinner party brings some upstanding townspeople to his home so they can properly admire the "celebrity" amongst them. But perhaps everyone is not quit so enamored as he might have hoped, as he's dead by the next morning.

    Malliet fills her book with wonderful dry English humor, exquisite small town cliches, lovely clues, and characters that definitely entertain the senses. In this particular book, she also deal thoughtfully with some very serious subject matter from World War 2. Must read for cozy fans who want everything a cozy promises plus some excellent commentary on serious matters. Her best one yet!

  • Don’t Ever Get Old

    Performance
    Story

    What a terrific main character!! Buck Schatz is an 83 year old retired policeman who refuses to acknowledge that age can keep him down. He rages against the grass that he can no longer keep beautiful. He lights up a cigarette everywhere he goes, even in non-smoking areas. He keeps a memory notebook where he writes important things in his life in hopes of warding off dementia. A simple bump leaves his thin skin with multiple shades of bruising. He rages against, yet deeply loves, his grown grandson whenever technology and electronics are brought up, as Buck has no idea how to use these things. He keeps his gun handy at all times because of a directive from the late General Eisenhower. He has a deep abiding love for his wife of over 60 years. He's a determined curmudgeon and a hoot and a half!

    When Buck hears a rumor that the Nazi that beat him nearly to death, while he was in a Nazi prison, may still be alive and hiding Nazi gold bars made from Jewish treasures, Buck goes on the chase. Buck and his grandson make an hilarious and poignant pair of detectives. There are many secrets, multiple murders and intriguing suspects, requiring Buck to use everything within him to answer questions, and to stay alive.

    Daniel Friedman has captured everything bad and everything wonderful about "old people". This story is deeply serious, while keeping the funny bone busy. Definitely a book worthy of many accolades!! May this just be the beginning of a long line of such uniquely engaging books!

  • "What a Terrific Book"

    78 of 78 helpful votes

    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!!

When she buys Charlene Miller's dog-walking business on Manhattan's exclusive upper east side, it seems like the perfect fit: quiet environment, minimal contact with people. But then one of her clients turns up dead, and Charlene disappears.

    The house is historic, some say haunted. It is also slated to be razed and replaced by condos, unless Hannah Smith can do something about it. She's been hired by a wealthy Palm Beach widow to prove that the house's seller didn't disclose everything he knew about the place when he unloaded it, including its role in a bloody Civil War skirmish (in which two of Hannah's own distant relations had had a part), and the suicides - or were they murders? - of two previous owners.
