Although I truly feel that this book has too many flaws to deserve a 3-star rating, I wish it were possible to give 2-1/2 stars. The author has a good basic concept and a unique premise that provides great potential for additional books in this series. The protagonist, Liza, was a likeable character throughout the book. Unfortunately, also throughout the book the reader has to suspend disbelief that a kindergarten teacher would act so rashly, stupidly placing herself in extreme jeopardy amongst known killers, kidnappers, pedophiles and porn peddlers. Really?? Liza's new love interest, a local law-enforcement officer, is just as unbelievable in his willingness to "reluctantly" go along with Liza's amateur snooping. These two characters also have potential but here they seem to have been hastily developed and rushed into an implausible relationship.
The most annoying problem with this book is the ridiculous amount of misspellings and the egregious punctuation and grammar errors. There are literally several errors on each PAGE. These became so distracting that in the end, I would have to say they were the ruination of the book. Between the hastily developed characters and the prodigious errors, this book lost any credibility. Ms. Dulle has a great potential series; I believe a good, solid editor could have elevated this initial effort to a 3- or 4-star read.
Seems like typos and grammar really irk some readers. Since I do most of my 'reading' with text enabled, I tend to miss most of those flaws. In Death my concern centers around the characters. It is almost as though Ms. Dulle was in a hurry to get to the punch line and rushed both the plot and character development. Her sex scenes left you with no doubt as to what was happening without being so graphic as to be considered erotica. I enjoyed her work overall as a light, undemanding piece and plan to read her next book.
4.0 out of 5 starsThey were right to say "one person can do a lot". It only took a school teacher to get the ball a rolling.

Right from the start, you are cheering the heroine, a school teacher, to right a wrong. This mystery revolves around a kidnapping. There are also other wrongs that need to bring to the light. Our heroine meets the hero, a sheriff, and there is an attraction. He has also been looking into the kidnapping that happened several years before. I've already ordered another book by this author, I so liked this book. Theila
I hated this book! How many times do we have to be told she's a kindergarten teacher. We get it already, your a teacher & you are fabulous with kids, get over it. I almost trashed this book again & again, but since I bought it figured I would punish myself so I didn't buy the 2nd book in the series, it worked! I usually don't leave horrible reviews but this book got on my nerves so bad I couldn't stand it.
Wow. I just finished reading the book and was very surprised how good it was. Usually I get pretty bored from reading so many books but this book captured my heart. I don't think I'll look at clowns the same way anymore, though.
