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 is a very quick and entertaining book. This book is very focused and stays on point. There are no pointless plot twists The story is very focused and entertaining. I wish the rest of the series was available.
I enjoyed this book almost as much as I enjoed the first book. I felt that the main character wasn't as strong as she was in the first book. However, the mystery was good. I liked that her children played a bigger part in this book. However, I'm not a fan of the extended family and I'm not sure I will like the direction this book is heading.
I bought this on the strength of the first book. It was a very quick read. It wasn't as entertaining as the first book. I wish I could give it two and a half stars.
This is a quick and light cozy mystery. I laughed out loud a couple of times. It closely resembled a movie in which a famous governor starred in but that was okay. It helped pass the time while cleaning and doing errands.
Overall, this book is okay. The main character, Jill, isn't very bright and there are many times when I had to shake my head at her thoughtlessness. There is a very good supporting cast of characters and the mystery plot is actually very good. I would recommend this to anyone who likes light mysteries and a little romance.
There are no words that can express how good this series is. The only bad thing about it is that it's over. Elizabeth Hunter is one of the best writers ever!!!
This just keeps getting better. This is a must read series. Buy this book and you will not be disappointed.
This is one of the best vampire series ever written. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who likes entertaining vampire stories with a mixture of romance and mystery. This is a great book.
I'm not a cat fan. I also thought the premise of the story was far fetched. However, the mystery plot was actually intriging. It was fast paced and very entertaining. The characters were also likeable and that added to the overall enjoyment of the story. I recommend this book to cozy mystery lovers and cat lovers.
This series keeps getting better. Rachel is a great character. Not ony is she evolving but so are the supporting characters. I can't wait to see how her relationship with Trent is developed in the next book.
