It took me a while to read the first book in this series. I had to put it down after the first few chapters. But when I came back to it months later I was able to finish it. Now a couple of years later I gave the second book a try. I won't buy the third. This book is too wordy. Cleo spends too much time describing the scenery and enough on the mystery. The lead character Claire, is annoying. The idea of joining a dating service to screen men for her daughter is ridiculous. She needs to get a life and let her have her own. Claire then goes on to find an attractive man who may or not be a murderer but that doesn't stop her from going out with him. She then proceeds to interrogate him and search his house. If she thought the man was dangerous why go to his house? If she didn't think he was dangerous why interrogate him and search his place? Also, why did he allow himself to be interrogated? That entire scene was unrealistic. Speaking of unrealistic, I can go on and on about the relationship with her ex husband. But I won't because that would be a bit like Cleo Coyle and her descriptions of New York. Needless to say that the ex husband adds unnecessary drama and silliness. The characters in this story are flat and I can't find a reason to care about what happens to them. This series is not for me and I won't be buying anymore of it.
This was very entertaining book. I enjoyed the characters and plot. I look forward to the next book in the series.
This book was not for me. I didn't like the subject matter so I stopped reading early into the book. Maybe I will pick it up another day and enjoy it. That being said, I didn't want to give it a negative rating. I do think the a professional narration would make it better.
This was another funny and entertaining addition to a great series. Emily is back with her Iowa seniors and Etiene. Jackie skipped this trip, which was fine with me. I would love to take a trip with this group and be a part of the fun.
This is a well written book with the right balance of humor and mystery. Hamish runs into murder and a group of eccentric characters in another Highland village. Hamish has some personal growth and I look forward to seeing how this affects his relationship with Priscilla in the future.
This was another very good book set in Loch Duh. Hamish is a good cop and I'm glad he fiannly got some credit. I am also happy the Priscilla is beginning to see Hamish for the man he is.
This is a very good mystery. I enjoyed the characters and plot twists. Also the story itself is unique and well written. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that sometimes it was hard to follow and I found myself going back because I thought I missed something. I also did not like the narrator.She did good with the foreign accents but her New York accent was stale.
This was a great second book in the Letty Whittaker series. It was better than the first. Letty's character is brave and tenacious. There was several twists and turns that kept me listening. I recommend this book. I wish the next one was available in the audible library.
Agatha keeps getting better. This book had lots of unexpected twists and turns with interesting new characters. As always, Agatha is the glue that holds it all together and sees the mystery to the end. I'm already on to the next book.
I enjoyed the forth novel of this series. It's a bit unrealistic that every single man in town is instantly in "like" with Dev. However, Swanson makes it work. I enjoyed this latest addition to the series and can't wait to see how it continues with the new twists and turns introduced.
This is a well written mystery with complex characters and many twists and turns. Letty is a realistic and flawed character that is very sympathetic and likeable. The supporting cast only add to the entertainment value of this book. I highly recommend it.
