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 started this series of Reed Ferguson mysteries from the free books list in the Amazon website and loved the style and tone of the book: This Didn't Happen in the Movies. So I bought the second book, Reel Estate Rip-off. I was very happy to find that the author maintained the style of the first book without becoming too saccharin or overly grim. The light tongue in cheek approach to the story did not hide the great story. I too am a film noir buff and recognized almost all of the names Reed adopted for himself when approaching potential suspects or searching for information close to line of illegal action. I especially liked that he doesn't carry a gun, isn't quick with his fists and is sometimes self-deprecating when the clues finally fall into place. I'm not going to discuss the plot here, but suffice it to say that as a former real estate salesperson and a victim of the "downsizing" of many business in the economic downturn of 2008, I found many of the circumstances in this book all too familiar. I have already purchased books 3 and 4 in this series and plan to continue with the collection. Great work, Renee Pawlish!

Here’s a guy like you or me – a detective yet! – OK he’s had some experience detecting – or maybe he just got lucky – and now he’s been hired by a dead man’s brother to find out who killed him.

PROBLEM? The brother’s death was ruled accidental.

WHY? He was riding his bike along a scary mountain path – one of those with a sheer cliff on one side – and over he went!

AND YET? His brother claims his dead brother hated riding bikes and was scared of high places….

ENTER: Reed Ferguson, a guy who decided to become a detective…and with the help of his two goofy friends, Ace and Deuce – yup, their real names – and his Harvard friend, super tech geek, Cal – the case becomes a little more than just an accident…and it all turns on a shaky real estate deal the dead brother made…

AND SO WHY IS THIS CALLED REEL ESTATE RIP-OFF?

ANSWER? Jump into this very cool, well written tale with characters you’d like to party with or just sit down over a bunch of pizzas and a few pitchers of beer and solve the world’s problems and play a little pool.

WELL, WHY NOT? Slip some more fun in your day and meet a bunch of book friends that you will want to see again…you deserve some more fun, right?

THEN HELP YOURSELF!

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.
