I've watched this TV series on Hallmark since the first episode so I wasn't sure I'd enjoy the book. If anything, I enjoyed the book more than the series. I've never read Debbie Macomber before but I thoroughly enjoy her writing style. This was a perfect summer read for me and I've requested all the other books in this series.
The Women's Murder Club is at it again and most of this novel centers on Detective Lindsay Boxer. Lindsay is on leave from the San Francisco Police Department and the change of scene leaves behind her "posse". Needless to say where Lindsay goes you find plenty of action. She comes full circle by finding clues to an unsolved murder from her years as a rookie. There are twists and turns a plenty. Just when I thought I'd figured out the case, James Patterson threw me a curve ball. This is a terrific vacation book, the chapters are short (a Patterson trademark).
This is probably my least favorite in the Dimity series. I seems that the author built up the story line with the unseen attacker but she never developed his character which is key to the reader. The actual entry of this "evil" character was far too short and left the author trying to tie up the loose ends during a dialogue section at the end.
I believe this is part of a series. The main character is Rae Gabriella picking up the pieces of her life after a traumatic event. This is well written and has made me eager to read the preceeding books.
I don't think Nora Roberts ever disappoints her readers. This trilogy, based in Ireland, is so good. You care about the characters and you want them to have that happy ending. I love the girls with some fire in their character and how she has to meet one special man to tame her, so I guess I enjoyed the first work the best. But the other two are well worth the time invested in the reading. Take this one on vacation and you are set for many happy hours on the beach!
Is it just me or has Braun wandered too far from the mystery in her books and now it's centering more on Quill's life in Moose County. I've read every one of her books and I tend to really enjoy her earlier works but not so much her last few. There wasn't enough character building of the murderers to make me care who did it.
I enjoyed having this on audio book because I could listen to it at work. The story was really interesting with the action based in Isreal. I'd suggest this for anyone who has an interest in the Temperance Brennan series.
I enjoy historical based fiction so this series was really enjoyable for me. The characters are full of life I did care about the outcome of their stories. I lived in South Carolina for six years and became very familiar with the southern attitudes towards the Civil War. I could distinctly relate to the storyline in these books. And Gary Parker can write a good love story for both the women and the men in the books.
Once I got past the idea that this dog lived several lives, I really got caught up in his relationships with the humans in his lives. I have to admit shedding a couple tears and the end brings this story full circle.
Clark writes a good Christian novel that builds suspense and yet her characters have an easy manner, more like the folks next door rather than the gritty detective on TV. I wanted to read this from beginning to end and I'm requesting another by this author.
As a fan of Tony Hillerman and his Navajo mysteries, I thought I would never find another writer of his level who would write Native American mysteries. Now I've discovered Margaret Coel and her Father John O'Malley series. I'm working my way through her works and, to my surprise, I like her work just as much as Hillerman. The series takes place on the Wyoming Wind River Reservation and it gives me a historical view of the Arapaho Nation. These are books that I can't put down, even if I know "who done it". If you like Hillerman, you'll like Coel.
