Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

It’s the Fourth of July on Broward’s Rock, the sea island off the coast of South Carolina that is home to Death on Demand, the mystery bookstore run by Annie Darling, and to Confidential Commissions, the problem-solving agency run by her husband, Max. At a dance at the club that holiday night, it seems that Max and Annie are the only happy couple. Most notably, Shell, the younger, second wife of Wesley Hurst, is making things miserable for him, his first wife, her lover, his kids, and her blackmailer. Several days after the dance, Wesley’s daughter comes to Confidential Commissions to ask Max for help in finding Shell, who is missing along with her new green Porsche. Also missing is a waiter at the club. Annie and Max suspect a connection, but, until a body is found, others assume both Shell and the waiter are just away. As always, Annie and Max use conversations and subterfuge to seek out the truth. Fans of this series will enjoy the twists on the monthly store contest and the involvement in the case of Max’s mother, local author Emma Clyde. --Karen Muller --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“A beautifully constructed mystery.”—Connecticut Post
 
“A highly satisfying read that builds to a stunning climax.”—Mystery Scene Magazine
 
“Annie and Max...tackle multiple suspects and clues reminiscent of the classic mysteries offered at their bookstore. Their fans will enjoy rooting among the suspects in preparation for a denouement straight out of Agatha Christie.” —Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

She has a great story line and there is always a twist.

Annie Darling and her husband Max are investigating a couple of disappearances in Broward's Rock and there are definitely some fireworks.
Deb@Debbie's Book Bag
As usual, the book begins with short vignettes that show possible motives while introducing key characters.

Hurray for another Death on Demand book! Annie and Max Darling are such a fantastic duo. If you love Agatha Christie (like I do) you'll love Hart's Death on Demand series as well. Dead, White, and Blue kept me guessing until the end. I highly recommend this mystery to anyone looking for a great read.

For readers that have been following Annie and Max Darling right from the beginning, with the release of Death in Demand, they will be anxiously awaiting the release of the 23rd book in this series, Dead, White & Blue.

It is summer in Broward's Rock and Annie and Max Darling are looking forward to the Fourth of July dance. However one resident is causing up a stir and everything is due to come to a head at the dance. That person is Shell Hurst, the woman everyone loves to hate. Even her own husband, Wesley Hurst, has reasons to dislike her and wish her dead. When she goes missing after the dance, after having made a spectacle, Max is asked to investigate where she went by Shell's step-daughter, Hayley. However what Annie and Max will uncover is a multiple murder and many people in the town that really wished Shell would disappear and never return.

The Death on Demand series are one of my favorites. They are intelligent mysteries, that are very much reminiscent of Agatha Christie's Tommy and Tuppence. Annie and Max are smart sleuths, that always get their man (or woman!), despite the obstacles in their way. This time there is quite a few people that are determined to stop them from investigating Shell's disappearance, people that would rather she stayed missing!

I love the Darlings and I always enjoy trying to solve the mystery alongside them. I also dearly love Broward's Rock and the Death on Demand bookstore. The secondary characters that appear in each book have endeared themselves to me over time, and I always look forward to taking another adventure with them.

If you haven't picked up this series yet, be sure to begin with Death on Demand. Like a glass of fine wine, these books have only gotten better with age, and I can't wait to see what Carolyn Hart has in store for us next.

It's hard to believe that anybody could write 50 books. It's harder still to believe that her 50th book would be one of her most thrilling. However, that's exactly what Carolyn Hart has done with her latest release: Dead, White, and Blue.
Loved the setting in Broward's Rock. I've always loved the south. And, I always love the 4th of July celebrations. But, of course, Carolyn puts a witty spin on all those things in Dead, White and Blue. And, naturally it involves both mystery and murder.
I found it to be an easy and fast read. And, I really don't read much fiction. But, Mrs. Hart keeps you turning the pages faster and faster as you lose your sense of time and place. It was a great weekend escape.
Destined to be a classic. A must read.

By the way, Carolyn has a great website: [...]

This is another excellent effort by the Queen of Cozy, Ms. Carolyn Hart. I have been reading the Max and Annie Darling Books for some time now, and I love each and every one of them. This book is another winner. The setting is of course Broward's Rock in South Carolina . The book is set in a steaming hot July on this little island paradise. This is beach reading at its best. Annie and Max are trying to find out what happened to a young woman who disappeared during the fireworks display on July 4. No one seems to think that anything bad has happened to her, but Annie and Max know that she just didn't disappear off the island without a trace. There is no shortage of suspects, as this young woman has not made many friends in Broward's Rock. She has not been above going after any man she fancies and could care less if he's married or not. And Annie and Max are nothing if not entertaining. I love reading about their lives and their friends with each book that comes out. It's like reading about old friends, and that's what cozies are supposed to be about. Can't wait for the next one.

Hi, Carolyn. Just finished your new book! I just love your books and different series. The stories and locations are so engaging and enjoyable, the characters so believable and interesting, the plots so good! I can picture everything vividly with your descriptions and especially love the island location. Love all your references to other mystery writers, too, and inclusion of artists in the monthly watercolors contest. And cats -- love cats!

As usual with any of Carolyn Hart's books, I could hardly put this book down and I ended up reading it far into the night. I love Carolyn's Annie and Max Darling mysteries. I feel like I know them personally after reading most of her Death on Demand books. This one was suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat! I recommend it to those readers who enjoy a great mystery with interesting characters.

The story grabs you from the opening page with a "potential" victim you simply love to hate. The denoument is as unexpect4d as the twists and turns throughout the story. This book is truly worthy of being the milestone of 50th book. Congratulations to Ms. Hart for a story well imagined, marvelously carried out with suspense and entertainment.
