Do yourself a favor and don't buy this book.
Book Lover
A fringe of mystery as an excuse for sex scenes, mostly, with shallow characters and weak, rushed plots.

Just like I feel I got robbed of my money by buying this book.

Format: Paperback
This anthology is a complete and utter disgrace. The so-called whodunit novellas are a total joke. I cannot believe I spent fourteen dollars on this. Talk about money down the drain! The only mystery in this book is what made Brava decide to release this fiasco. All of the novellas (or at least the first three I read. I didn't bother to finish up the book by reading the last story) are underdeveloped and too abrupt to make the mystery remotely plausible. There is supposed to be some building of tension and slow gathering of clues in a whodunit. The reader gets none of that here. I love MaryJanice Davidson and am partial to her work, but even her novella was a major stinker. The plot is nonexistent, characterization is absent (especially with Turner -- the so-called hero in the story), the sharp wit and memorable quips are missing, and the murder mystery in reverse thing would have been clever had it been developed and executed in a better way. I also noticed that the character Dana had been described as a "pleasant-looking blonde with curly Orphan Annie hair and big blue eyes," and then her hair was later described as red. Which brings me to another problem I had with this book: poor editing. There is a plethora of mistakes in this book. Was this book rushed into printing or something? Well, one thing is certain is that the authors are encouraged to churn out crap at hyper speed! Ms. Davidson is such a wonderful author, but her work as of late is below par to her earlier stories and to the stuff she writes for Berkley.Read more ›

I picked this book up at a bookstore and clearly didn't make a wise purchase. For those of you who really like mystery and suspense, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! The writing is terrible and if you really like mystery and suspense, these are not the authors for you. Although I should qualify that and state that after the first two stories, I did not read the last two because I was sure they were probably the same style as the first two. The stories have no real plot other than "tired and bored city girl meets hunk and has sex with him." In fact the first two stories are so short on plot, suspense and writing ability that you could swear they were written by the same hand. Even the author's beloved sex scenes are poorly done and sound like the ramblings of an adolescent.

Do yourself a favor and don't buy this book. It is awful! The only mystery contained within these pages is how and why they were actually published.

I really like the wicked women series, and until this book I could have recommended all of them as being a good read. This one greatly departs from the others in both subject matter and quality of writing.

I was especially horrified by MaryJanice Davidson's (dare I say it?) pathetic attempt at a murder mystery. As I am a big fan of hers, it pains me to have to say that, but I am hoping to warn others that usually enjoy her stories to not read this one. Also, I am hoping that those who have never read any of her stories will not start with this one. My favorite book by this author is Royal Treatment. Contained in Royal Treatment and the author's other books, but missing in this story, is her usual wit and interesting characters. I am still unsure as to why I should care what happenned to the characters in "Ten Little Idiots," not that much did. I'm not mentioning the sex scenes because they aren't worth mentioning.

Single White Dead Guy was a passable story, if very predictable. It doesn't carry the book though. The title could have been used more effectively to set something up for a better written story.

Like another reviewer, I stopped reading before finishing the book (at the begining of story #3 to be exact). Then, I decided I should give the last story a try just to be fair since I was writing a review. Although, it does not make the book worth buying for it alone, it is the best story in the book. It takes place on a reality show that goes awry. I also upped my rating from 1 to 2 stars after reading it.

It is unfortunate that this collection is what we got when romance writers tried to do a mystery.

I felt cheated when I bought this book, and in fact, I ended up returning it. The efforts put forth by the authors for this anthology were lackluster for the most part. MJD's story was not even up to her usual hilarious standards, and I really had a hard time understanding why the two characters got together since there was little developement about their backgrounds, which matched the skimpy plot. Do yourself a favor, borrow a friend's copy or go to the library, but this is not worth the cover price.

Mary Janice Davidson is a hit or miss author with me and this story most definitely MISSED. I couldn't deal with the character motivations. They just made no sense.

Amy Garvey's story was okay...it wasn't predictable per se, but it also didn't pull me in.

Jennifer Apodaca's story was by far the best. She engaged me and interested me in the plot. it was a BIT predictable but by FAR the best.

Nancy Cohen is a mystery writer so I expected her story to be the best. It was the worst. There were continuity errors all over the place. The romance wasn't developed at all.

This was one of the weakest and worst edited Bravas I've read.
