From the first paragraph, I was hooked on this new series by veteran Krich.
Molly Blume is a cool new heroine.
From an amazon.com reader: Blues in the Night is the first of Rochelle Krich's books that I have read, and it's a great place to start. This is the first in her Molly Blume thriller series. Molly writes true crime but she soon finds that deadlines aren't the only things on her agenda. A few dead people add to her days, the first being a mysterious unidentified young woman who is hit by a hit and run driver in the middle of the night.
I enjoyed how I got to know Molly and her family and friends throughout the book. Molly consistently remains faithful to her Jewish background and the author remains faithful to hers by giving us a glossary at the back of the book explaining terminology used that non-Jewish readers may not be familiar with. Blues in the Night has all the components that I love in a mystery/thriller...hooked from the first few pages, a main character that I like from the beginning who is obviously a strong person and has the ability to solve problems on her own but isn't afraid to ask for help on occasion. Molly has a loving relationship with her family, and that provides humor and tenderness. There is romance in the air, too. This is a book that from the first moment of suspense kept me reading until I had finished the book and was sorry that I had. I had to say good-bye to Molly until I read the next in the series, which will be very soon. It's already on its way. Excellent book that I love!
