This was a decent story. The characters are amusing and the nostalgia inviting. l won't say it was the best story though. It was entertaining while I wait for one of my favored authors to come up with something new, Reed, Cal, Ace, Deuce, Bob all participated as usual. I see there is another book ready in the series, I will move on to it and see if it gets better.......

Note: This review is my opinion, and it is skewed to my likes and preferences.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have chosen to give this book a rating of (3.75 / 5) for a few reasons:

1. Personally I found the story a bit predictable - however, it was still entertaining to read since you didn't have to follow a ton of convoluted threads...

2. I found it reminded of the old dime store detective novels, or the old detective movies - don't get me wrong, some like that style of books or maybe that was the intent all along.

Characters - Henri and Evaline were the most believable characters in the book to me, yet they were minor cast members. Ace and Deuce (god I hope they have real names) were there to provide some comic relief. The Ex was setup for you to hate from the start. The love interest could have been developed more. Reed was the casual, laid back detective.

If I had read the first book, then I might have had more insight into the cast. So to be totally fair, I might make sense to read the books in order.

Story - The story read very much like an old detective movie, which I have watched many. This may be why the story seemed predictable. Short of giving a spoiler which I hate, the story seemed to press you into believing a certain character was the killer when everything in me knew otherwise.

I will give due credit though for the following:

1. Pawlish did a fantastic job of bring all the loose threads to a solid conclusion, even threads I hadn't caught - nothing was left hanging.

2. She definitely did her research in regards to the movies.

I enjoyed reading this book. We check in with Reed Ferguson, a fledgling private detective. He is tasked with investigating a death that was ruled a suicide. The brother thinks it was murder. And so another adventure begins. The plot held my attention through to the end. The characters are well written. We have a beautiful and not so nice suspect. Reed' s beautiful neighbor, Willie. The computer master, Cal and the Goofball Brothers. There is a nice mix of action, mystery and humor. I will read more by this author and I have already read another in the series.
There are some editing errors. If you can overlook them I think you will enjoy this book.
I was graciously provided a copy of this book by the author. This did not effect review one way or the other. I was looking forward to this book after I read This Doesn't Happen in the Movies.

I've read two of the Reed Ferguson books now. They are entertaining and I will look for the next book by this author.

I got the first book because it was free and liked it enough to make me buy the second book. The Reel Estate Rip-off was a fun book. It kept me entertained and I'm really starting to like Reed Ferguson and his Goofball neighbors. His friend Cal I'm not fond of though. But all in all I liked the book and I'm getting ready to buy the next one in the series.

This book had a good plot and it ran along smoothly. Renee Pawlish has a way with words and makes the stories entertaining and makes them move along at a good clip. I would recommend this book to everyone that likes mysteries.

This is the second Reed Ferguson mystery I have read. I liked it better than the first, perhaps because I knew the main characters. Cal helps Reed, but almost regrets it. The Goofball brothers lend the right amount of humor to the story. Reed's mother is a hoot, thinking Reed is on drugs whenever she calls. Willie, the woman across the street, shows more interest in Reed than in the first book. The Benoits are a good addition to this book. The murderer was unexpected. If you like mysteries with tidbits of movie history thrown in, I suggest you read these books.
