Book Description

Jessie Hewitt thought her pool-hustling days were long gone. But when uber-hunky cop Wilson Rye asks her to go undercover to catch a killer, she jumps at the chance to return to a sleazy poolroom. Jessie is confident she can handle a double homicide, but the doubly-annoying Wilson Rye is another matter altogether. What's he doing flirting with a woman half his age? Will Jessie have what it takes to deal with Tiffany La-Dee-Doo-Da Sass and solve the murders? Take a guess.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much fun December 5, 2012
By Linda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jessie Hewitt, accomplished pool player and historical romance author, is back in another enjoyable mystery. Double Shot, the second book in Cindy Blackburn's Cue Ball Mysteries, is just as much fun as the first. Jessie's beau, Captain Wilson Rye, has asked for her help. The Wade On Inn, a real dive, has been the scene of two murders. Both victims played pool there every night. Wilson needs someone undercover who can shoot pool and gamble with the best of them. Jessie is the logical choice. She changes her appearance, talks her two good friends into joining her, and with their help, becomes a regular at the pool table. The scenes set at the Wade On Inn and around the pool table are very amusing.

In many cozy mysteries, the amateur sleuth is forever being warned to stay out of the investigation. I love that Captain Rye asks for Jessie's help. Although he worries about her, he has faith in her abilities. We are introduced to Jessie's mom in this book, and I loved meeting her. She is a sweetheart and very entertaining. The relationship between Jessie and her two friends is an interesting one. They don't seem to have much in common, and they are not close in age, yet they truly care about one another and work very well together.

Ms. Blackburn's humorous voice comes shining through in this book. The dialogue is crisp and funny, the mystery is solid, and the pacing is brisk. I am quickly becoming a fan of Ms. Blackburn's writing. I'm off to read the next book in this series: Three Odd Balls. Give this series a try. I think you'll like it. Happy reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fresh and Fun Series November 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The second book in Cindy Blackburn's Cue Ball Mystery series is another fun jaunt with Jessie and her friends Candy and Karen as they work undercover at a pool hall called Wade on Inn to solve a pair of homicides. They end up tangled in the love lives of the eccentric patrons of the pool hall and soon realize everyone there had a motive to murder. The character that stole the show for me was Jessie's mother Tessie...her driving escapades had me in stitches! Jessie also has her hands full writing her latest historical romance (with the lovely Snowflake the cat as her constant companion) and dealing with her feelings of jealousy towards her beau Wilson's suspicious close working relationship with a co-worker. This is a fresh and fun series sure too appeal to all mystery lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first one December 9, 2012
By louise
Format:Kindle Edition
As much as I enjoyed the first book in Ms Blackburn's trilogy, I enjoyed Double Shot even more. Ms Blackburn's sense of humor and "voice" are so much fun. I really wanted to know "who done it". I was intrigued by her romance story within this story. I look forward to reading her next book. I just started it and I'm sure I will finish it and be happily satisfied by the end of the day. It's like mac and cheese--I want more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a mystery November 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cute. I love the main character. The leading man is lacking in personality however, and the whole "mystery" was not very mysterious. The first time the "suspects" were introduced I knew who the murderer was, how it was going to resolve itself, who the "mystery" undercover cops were, it was pretty obvious. It's a shame to have such a rich character surrounded with a bad plot. I stuck through the second book in the series hoping it would be better, but I'm not going to waste my time on the third.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just plain fun to read. November 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Ms. Blackburn's writing style. I got interested in the book immediately and stayed hooked until the end. In other books, I skim several pages and they go on and on about the scenery or describing something in too many details. I didn't do this at all in this book. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next.
