with almost non-existing physical descriptions of the characters. I have no idea what the main characters look like except for one guy who had red hair, but that's all i know about him. the reason she became involved in solving this mystery was far-fetched and unrealistic and told in a very flat manner. there was a lot of filler in this story, some interesting (the information on her practicing Judaism) and the rest, boring. the word splaink was used frequently and in different connotations and I have no idea what that meant. I tried looking it up and came up empty. I did finish the book as I wanted to know who did it and was surprised by the culprit. I gave 2 stars for effort and for the mystery.

I enjoyed Cast the First Stone. The book is well written, set in glamorous Beverly Hills, California, a mystery with great twists and turns, leaving you wondering "who done it?" The main character comes across as an average down-home girl that just about everybody can relate to. Woven into the mystery is romance when the main character, Rebecca, when tracking down a killer, is teamed with her ex-fiance. Trouble is, she is already engaged. Which one will win her heart? This book is unique in that it has tidbits about the Jewish religion and even some recipes, which I'm going to try. If you like mysteries, you'll love this book!

I received Cast the First Stone free for an honest review.

This is a very good mystery with just the right amount of twists and turns, hidden clues, and everything this reader likes in this genre. I did not figure out the killer or the motive in advance, always a good thing to me.

Financial reporter Rebecca Stone is pulled into a murder investigation when a visiting speaker, one of her former professors at Wharton, is killed. Wharton would like her and her former fiancée (who had jilted her) to investigate to be sure nothing detrimental to Wharton is involved in the murder. It is difficult for Rebecca to work with the man, especially since she has a loving boyfriend in the background. Although I enjoyed following the investigation, there were times the flashbacks to the time Rebecca was almost raped got in the way. Although they helped define Rebecca as a person, they didn't really have anything to do with the murder. A little too much there, I think, especially emphasizing the PTSD component as much as it was. All the characters are well-drawn, even down to the unimportant ones, and that adds to the depth of the book. I liked the bits of Jewish tradition and culture that were woven into the story. I plan to pass the book along to a Rabbi friend of mine.

I'm looking forward to more books with Rebecca Stone.

Although I give the book an A, I think the author needs to take another look at the cover. The front needs a do-over to catch the buyer's eye (the fonts are boring) and the back ought to have a blurb about the plot of the book, not a bio of the author. People buy books because of what's inside, not because of where the author went to school and other personal info. I know a teacher who is trying to encourage her students to read.

I read the reviews before starting this book, and after reading 30% of it, I just had to let it go. The religious aspect didn't bother me mainly because I'm Jewish but it was just so boring. I ended up just skimming the story. One of the reviews mentioned Evonovich...this was not a comedy by any means.

I would not recommend this book to anyone.

I am a murder mystery buff and this is on the top five of my list. Rebecca Stone is a complex character and as in the Evanovich and Grafton series, I got to know her on many levels. Also, just like in the Fannie Flagg books, we get to know the culture of Rebecca through her beliefs, customs, and food, which, to me, makes her multidimensional.
