This was a delicious read in every sense of the word. Judith's regular references to food had me hunting for snacks every few chapters or so. Being a bit of a foodie myself, I'm definitely trying the banana bread recipe at the back of the book. Jackson writes a polished mystery and develops her characters beautifully. I also enjoyed the familiar settings. I know the ravine in the Beach neighborhood of Toronto very well- the very one Val stumbled through to escape detection from the police. I even know that dog-eating coyote that lives in the ravine. Funny stuff! I'm looking forward to Val's next adventure.

I adored this tart-tongued heroine with her clueless sleuthing and lippy comebacks. Hapless
Val Valentyn invites you along on a mad-cap, hilarious journey as she suffers the indignities of the falsely accused and a life on the lam. She draws you in with her "folksy", take-no-prisoners narration and keeps you rooting throughout. A great cast of characters become indispensable to the enjoyment. This is extremely satisfying summer escapism. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

Judith Jackson has the same strange humor I enjoy. (Not my words...other peeps opinions.) I can hardly wait to find another because I bet it will be as wonderful as 'Coming Unclued". Thanks for the laughs, Lady! :D

This was one of those books that had me laughing out loud from beginning to end. Coming Unclued was like no other mystery I've ever read. For me, mysteries can be a bit stressful to read. Coming Unclued was fun! I'm recommending this book to the members of my book club. I can't wait to read my favourite lines to the group and laugh all over again.

As promised, a laugh-out-loud mystery! Subtle and sometimes not so subtle funny parts in the book propelled me through the book while trying to figure out who the murderer was, especially since nobody in the story seemed able to do that. Until the end. That made for some very tense moments. It turned out that I originally pegged the correct villain, but was misdirected a few times, one of the characteristics of a classic mystery. I'm looking forward to number two in the series and especially meeting Rose, again. She's quite the character!

Generally I stay clear of cozy mysteries since they usually feature young, gorgeous and silly heroines in ridiculous plots, but this was something else! This heroine is 47, overweight and unkempt, with a tendency to hit the bottle to the point where she gets blackouts. After one such event she wakes up and finds her boss murdered in her own bed. She is of course the main, or rather the only, suspect, and since no one else is looking for the real killer she has to do it herself and on the run from the police she finds herself in one bizarre situation after the other.
The plot is of course a bit absurd, it comes with the territory in this genre, but it is well written and lots of fun!
Recommended as an easy and fun read during a lazy summer day or a long trip.

Finding your boss dead in your bed could be a sign to drop the alcohol. Or it could be panic time and try to discover what the heck happened and who else could have wanted your boss dead. Val has her work cut out for her as she is the only suspect the police are looking at. The only reason she wasn't arrested already is because she called 911, not something a killer would usually do. She then goes on the lam and tries to solve the case herself. Can she clear herself before she ends up spending this Christmas in jail. A really well written cozy mystery that will make you laugh out loud.

This story starts out with a woman who passed out on her sofa after attending a party. She gets up and goes to her bedroom only to find her boss who had been stabbed to death. Police accuse her of doing the deed so she goes into hiding. With her friends Rose and Julie she sets out to find the killer. There are some laughs and gasps as you follow these three woman. It was interesting.
