This was my first book from this series, and sadly, it will be my last. I went into this book thinking the two main characters were a sluething team, and then I thought I was listening to a mad cap English romp, so I started waiting for that...or anything really...to happen. Not much luck there either. I saw that this book had good reviews, so maybe I just didn't "get it". I'm not sure, because all I can say is that it was "bad" and I can't recommend it to anyone.
Really enjoyed this book. This was a new author to me that I tried during a sale, and I'm glad I did! The story was solid with a few LOL's, but the mystery kept me guessing almost until the very end. If you like Janet Evanovich type chic lit, you will enjoy this book!
Janet Evanovich books...fun mystery with a little romance blended in
Somewhere in the upper middle. It held my attention and went by fast
I love the complexity of the Jesse Stone character
Yes, but I do not like how they constantly use the
I liked that he adopted the cat, or did the cat adopt him????
I love Dick Francis because all his books have the same elements (mystery, horse racing, and great characters) but all the books are different, so he doesn't have to keep re-inventing the wheel each time. This book was really enjoyable, and the mystery kept me guessing until the end, which is good for a mystery. It kinda stinks when the author reveals too much and you go through the book thinking, "Really? How did they not get that?!" This book held my attention and kept me sitting in the driveway a couple times because I couldn't tear myself away!
I'm a big fan of Parker's "Jesse Stone" series, but I'd never listened to any of the Spenser books, so when I saw this one in the $4.95 sale I decided to give it a try. It was ok, I didn't struggle through it or anything, but it was a very basic detective story. I didn't like the reader, and it took me awhile to get used to him, but I eventually did. Can't really recommend this book, as I didn't like it that much, but I can't really knock it either as it was an ok listen. If you like basic detective stories, or you want to start the Spenser books from the beginning then this book isn't too bad a choice.
This is by far one of the best paranormal series going!!! I'm amazed that HBO hasn't picked it up to go along with the True Blood fans. It's that good! Only sad part is that I now have to wait a whole year for the next installment :(
I gave this book a try because I like the paranormal genre, and honestly, because it was on sale for $4.95. I will give new authors a try for that price, and this book was a very good choice. The main characters were teenagers, but the writing was in no way juvenile. The book followed the paranormal romance/mystery genre pretty closely with the only difference being that it wasn't dirty. I guess that's what made it young adult, but it in no way effected the storyline. I really enjoyed it, and will probably try another book in this series.
I'm a big fan of the Hamish Macbeth series, and this installment didn't let me down. Like the other books in this series, the mystery is solid, the characters are colorful and there are a few laughs to round things out. I flew through the book, so that's usually an indicator to me that it was a pretty good book. I'd definitely say to give it a try!
I purchased this book during one of the $4.95 sales, and to be honest, I didn't have really high expectations. Well, was I ever surprised. I ended up loving this book; it was great. I mean, lets be honest, the formula is not unique but the characters are rich and full and you really start caring about them. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys chick lit. It won't disappoint.
I'm a huge fan of this series, but somehow I managed to miss this first book. Audible had one of their "1st in a series" sale, so I had to get this one, and I was not disappointed. Even if you've read/listened to other books in the series, I would still suggest this one because although you know where the characters end up, it's really great seeing how they get there!
Audible had one of their $4.95 sales, and now I'm roped into another series, because I really enjoyed this audiobook. I'm a fan of the paranormal genre, and I like my mystery sprinkled with a little romance/romantic possibility, so this was right up my alley. I got involved with the story right away, and enjoyed it all the way thru. I would definitely recommend this book, and I'll be trying the next book in the series.
