From the Author

While I've always had a soft spot for romance, the first time I read a Robert B Parker mystery, I was hooked on mysteries as well. I suddenly had a burning desire to create a female character as snarky as Spencer. Thus Miranda Steele was born. Of course, a smart mouth isn't always acceptable for a woman, so I gave her a horrendous past to justify her attitude. I hope you enjoy her story.

This was a good story, with believable characters and an engrossing plot. Miranda's reluctance to enter into a relationship was far more believable than the usual "jump into bed at the least provocation" that seems to be the norm with many romantic mysteries these days. I also appreciated her toughness, and the fact that it wasn't superficial. Many of the so-called "tough cookies" of modern mystery writing are just tough on the surface, and are unbelievably squeamish at the most inopportune moments. Miranda, however, is credible as someone who has toughened herself up as a result of her earlier life; this toughness also makes the story line tantalizing, because you know that she has feelings for Parker, but that she is fighting them because of her fear of losing herself again in a relationship. The characters are nicely balanced, and the twist of involving one of the girls in the murders was believable, too.

My only objection is to the somewhat spotty editing. Not knowing the difference between a plural "s" ending and a possessive "s" ending is an annoying and all-too-prevalent error these days. Some misuse of words was also irritating; please, take time to look up the big words that you don't know, and don't just trust the thesaurus when it says that one word is a synonym for another word! Also make sure you're using the correct word -- at least twice in the book the author used a word that sounds similar to the one that would have been correct, but which meant a completely different concept. A minute's worth of research on the internet (dictionary.com is your friend) would give you enough information to know that the word you chose is wrong, so put in that extra effort! And if you paid someone to edit this book? It's time to hire a new editor.

This book was more about physical attraction and sex between the obligatory opposites than it was about mystery and detective work. I was disappointed.

I only finished it to satisfy myself. Certainly needs editing. I dislike the whiney, angry violence of Miranda. Iris Johansson readers will probably love it. Personally, I can do without the repetition, and the same old "hard to get" female characters. DIFFICULT to get through with all the errors. I won't be reading any more.

There were a couple of problems here. First, I really didn't care for the romance in the book. That may have been my problem. If you like romance novels you might appreciate this book more than I did. The other problem is this book needs some serious editing. A lot of repetitive material. You want to scream - "I already know that. You don't need to tell me again." I gave it 3 stars but that may be a gift. The book is probably closer to a 2.

I feel like the author was attempting to giver the novel a "modern feel," but the main character was just too much: too bawdy, too crass, too one-dimensional and not at all likeable. I didn't enjoy the book because I couldn't stand Miranda.

I just finished the 1st Miranda Steele book and enjoyed it very much. I liked that Miranda was tough & compassionate. The book flowed very nicely. I have an interest in female detectives & have started man new series' only to put them down after a few pages. I am now ordering the next 2 books - already ordered the prequel. Please note that I am not a friend nor am I related to the author.

Good book with a strong main character, Miranda. she is not helpless & has a goal, find her daughter, who was given up for adoption without Mirands's permission. I would like to read more of her adventures.

I actually couldn't finish it. After reading the great reviews I had reasonable expectations but ended up being disappointed.

I persevered up until Chapter 5 but could go no further due to the completely unrealistic character development. Come on, seriously, if a woman is on the floor of a bar getting beaten up by a guy with a broken bottle, there's no way the other patrons would just stand around cheering them on! And the fluffy little blonde at the bar was as cliche as it gets. I understand that Miranda is angry and full of maternal need (she has every reason!) but she's just too big and unrealistic a personality for me to believe she's credible.

Maybe I should have tried harder and kept reading, but I just couldn't. I wish I could have had the same experience as those who loved this book, but frankly I just don't see it!
