Twist on a common whodunit
The opening was intriguing, with colorful characters brought to life by the skill of the writing. I enjoyed the banter between them...for a while. I'll get back to that.
The oddities bothered me
First off, it wasn't poorly written, but it was the writing style that annoyed me somewhat.
Interesting title, but the cover needs work
Easy, extremely short read.
Clipped Narrative-Style Writing
The story was good. It had real potential to be great.
A lot happening, but...
...the author did a good job making it all cohesive.
Despicable Character You Love to Hate
Stuart is a criminal and completely deplorable.
Interesting But Rushed
A typical near-first-meeting romance but with a little more involved story with Silas and his step-brother.
It's the 1940s and there's a lot happening...in this book.
The only reason for the four stars instead of five is because it was predictable at times.
Falls Short of its Potential
The main protagonist, Gwen, is not a detective by trade, she's a college student.
Hard To Decide
I have read multiple books by Mary Higgins Clark and have enjoyed them but haven't ever read any books by Carol Higgins Clark and was curious to see how they would do writing together. Ummm...I'm kind of conflicted.
Wouldn't Go Out Of My Way
Roped in to help with a bake sale for the school, several retired teachers end up in the vicinity of a murder. The main character, named Phyllis, can't help but ask questions and ends up butting into the investigation even though the police tell her not to.
