Rachel Goldman writes mysteries in which Duffy Madison, consultant to the county prosecutor's office, helps find missing persons. Rachel is busy working on her next book when a man calls out of the blue asking for help in a missing person case. The caller's name? Duffy Madison. Is this real, or has she lost her mind? She doesn't have much time to find out, because a serial killer is on the loose, kidnapping and murdering mystery authors. And Rachel may just be the next target.

I love the haunted guesthouse series. this story has no supernatural elements, at least not so far, but its a great story too. Is the investigator who asks for Rachel's help really the character in het book? great plot twist.

These books are so much fun. each includes several stories, typically Jill the p.i. investigates a mystery in the with world as well as one in the human world. in adition there are the aspects of her witch training and the many adventures of her sidekicks, winkey the cat who in this one is writing a boy wizard story, as well as her knitting p.a. mrs. V. Lots of humor ties it all together. hopefully all will be available in audio soon.

I was a bit worried getting a story about a nun who leaves the convent because i dont like my light reading to preach to me either for or against religion or politics. i was pleasantly surprised. there is balance and no demagoguery here. the mystery is well contracted and the characters are compeling and likable. will definitely continue the series.

The wheel of time is in my opinion the best fantasy series ever written and this is of course one of the most important in the series. It speaks to the genius of Robert Jordan that this book holds the reader spellbound despite the fact that the main character appears in less than ten percent of the book.
this book story takes place roughly one year after book 1 starting with the winter and spring a year after the adventures in the eye of the world.
spoiler....


this book tells the story from the battle of Falme where the horn is sounded for the first time to the fall of the Stone of Tear which brings about the (almost) universal acknowledgment of the rebirth of the Dragon.

The year is 1920: Flying in the face of convention, legendary American adventuress Beryl Helliwell never fails to surprise and shock. The last thing her adoring public would expect is that she craves some peace and quiet. The humdrum hamlet of Walmsley Parva in the English countryside seems just the ticket. And, honestly, until America comes to its senses and repeals Prohibition, Beryl has no intention of returning stateside and subjecting herself to bathtub gin.

A good mystery with historical background. The narrator did a good job except that all the voices sound too old. they seem like people in their 50 and 60s rather than 30s and 40. it is confusing becuase the ages are important to the understandi ng of the plot.
