Editorial Reviews

Review

“Pure Carolyn Hart—a timeless story of love, betrayal, and greed. Set against the alluring landscape of New Mexico, Castle Rock is fast-paced, edgy, and wonderfully atmospheric. Hart vividly spins a suspense-filled plot rich in family dynamics that pulls you in on page one and won’t let go until the very end. The rebirth of Carolyn Hart classics is like discovering that there really is gold at the end of the rainbow. . . . Utterly spellbinding.”
Hannah Dennison, author of the Vicky Hill mysteries and the Honeychurch Hall mysteries

“A thrilling mix of suspense, romance, and mystery, Castle Rock is a page turner from page one through its nail-biting climax and very satisfying conclusion. I loved this book!”
Lisa Seidman, author of Killer Ratings
 
“An exciting tale of intrigue, with more twists and turns than a steep canyon trail. And the ride is just as breathtaking.”
Donis Casey, The Wrong Hill to Die On: An Alafair Tucker Mystery

Someone has killed Serena's uncle and now it seems they're trying to kill her. As more of the mystery unfolds, it becomes clear that something is wrong at Castle Rock and someone at the ranch is involved. Despite warnings to leave the ranch and avoid trouble, she refuses. She's determined to uncover the truth, even if it means exposing her best friend or the man she loves for what they really are.

Castle Rock is an exciting mystery set on a working cattle ranch in New Mexico. The amazing descriptions of the beautiful countryside make this wonderful story come alive. There are moments when I could imagine myself sitting on a "sun-splashed rock, staring at the pale blue sky arching over the lake with slender spruce crowding down to the water's edge."

Serena couldn't understand the meaning of the two large piles of stones making X's in the flat New Mexico desert. It was the first of many clues placed throughout the story. In the end, their meanings will become clear and the ending will surprise you.

Bailey Ruth returns to earth to help a scruffy but lovable 20-something-video-game inventor who has lots of money and just as many enemies.

Carolyn writes the Death on Demand series set in a mystery bookstore on a South Carolina sea island and the Bailey Ruth Raeburn series featuring a lively redheaded ghost.

Carolyn is also the author of several WWII novels, including ESCAPE FROM PARIS which is mewly available this month from Seventh Street Books. Escape from Paris is the story of two sisters who defy the Gestapo to help British fliers avoid capture.

In Ghost at Work, Bailey Ruth returns to earth to help someone in trouble. She moves a body, investigates a murder, saves a marriage, prevents a suicide, and--in a fiery finale--rescues a child who knows too much. In Merry, Merry Ghost, Bailey Ruth protects a little boy from danger. In Ghost in Trouble, Bailey Ruth tries to corral a wilful woman determined to play hunt-the-killer. Ghost Gone Wild puts Bailey Ruth at risk of never returning to Heaven.

Letter from Home, a WWII novel set on the home front, received the Agatha Award for Best Mystery of 2003. It was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize by the Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers. Thirteen-year-old Gretchen Gilman is working for the small-town newspaper during the hot summer of 1944. Murder occurs on the street where she lives, forever changing her life and the lives of those involved.

Hart was one of 10 mystery authors featured at the National Book Festival on the Mall in Washington, DC, in 2003 for Letter from Home and again in 2007 for Set Sail for Murder, 7th in the Henrie O series. In Set Sail for Murder (new in paperback March 2008), Henrie O joins a troubled family on a Baltic cruise and death is an unwelcome passenger.

Hart has been nominated 9 times for the Agatha Award for Best Novel and has won 3 times. In 2007 she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at Malice Domestic. She will be the International Guest of Honor at Bloody Words in Toronto on June 6-8, 2008.

Hart is a native of Oklahoma City, a journalism graduate of the University of Oklahoma, and a former president of Sisters in Crime. She is also a member of Authors Guild, Mystery Writers of America, the International Association of Crime Writers, and American Crime Writers League.
