5.0 out of 5 stars Equal parts humor and mysterious twists..., April 7, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A House to Die For (A Darby Farr Mystery) (Paperback)
"A House to Die For" by Vicki Doudera is one of those rare gems in fiction that the reader doesn't want to end. Doudera has done an exceptional job in character development, exciting pace and unexpected twists of plot. Her prose is well written, accessible and at times, very funny. Still lurking below the pockets of grins lies a darker tale...one that draws the reader in further and further, around a labyrinth of interwoven sub-plots. Before the reader knows it, she has followed the writer down the rabbit hole and into the minds of the characters. Far from being one dimensional, or at the other extreme so prevalent in mystery fiction, too frantic a pace, the novel progresses smoothly, arriving at an unexpected, and surprising, climax of action. Readers who enjoyed "Grange House" by Sarah Blake, or the novels by Joanna Challis, will find Doudera's "A House to Die For" to be an intoxicating, delightful and impossible to put down read.

Vicki Doudera is the author of several non-fiction books, as well as worked as a successful real estate agent. She uses both of these previous skills in creating the fabulous character of Darby Farr. I look forward to her next novel with great anticipation!
