This seems to be the norm with most of the women mystery authors. There should be ratings...light romance, heavy duty sex, softcore porn, really adult language, and pure mystery as in Agatha Christie, Tess Gerritsen and others that I cannot think of right now. I don't expect many to like my review, but I would hope that some authors would take notice (if they ever do) and start putting out a good old true mystery.
Ms. Lovely took a chance of making her heroine 52 years old and the good-looking good guy cop a lot younger. That's unique to her heroine and should hit the fantasies of a lot of women out there. And (good for her) the heroine can figure out how to get herself out of trouble most dire without help from anyone until it's all over but the shouting.
The sex scenes were realistic, not shocking, sorta middle of the road for today's romantic literature. I get the feeling they were toned down somewhat to meet mainstream expectations.
I look forward to the next book in the series. Ms. Lovely gave enough introductions in this book to build an interest in the crusty old aunt for the sequel. Way to go Linda Lovely. Keep writing them this good and you will have me as a fan for life!

This book is absolutely fantastic! It is a mystery with some romance, humor, excitement... and more. This book is better than Jessica Fletcher and better than Agatha Christie for this one reason. This book shows that when you are over 50, you are not dead. Along with this being a great book, it goes to show that being a widow does not mean you have to shelve yourself till death. So yes, there is romance that gets a little risque in one or two instances, but I feel it goes to show women over 50 are not dead. So yes, there were a couple sex scenes, but they were nicely done and their attraction does not get in the way of solving the mystery.
This story is very well written. It is an action packed, edge of your seat type of mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole story. It is spine tingling. The story is easy to read and understand. The story takes place in a very small town, so it has a 'down home' type of feeling to it while still maintaining a good working story.
The characters are believable and you can relate to them easily. Of course, Marley and Braden are my favorite. Would be nice if Braden could be seen in future books about Marley. They belong together.
I do recommend this book for adults (due to the sex scenes). I think you will enjoy it as much as I do.

This was an enjoyable book. It held my interest throughout. The characters were fairly well developed. The villain was clearly identified fairly early but but proved elusive. Read morePublished on March 28, 2014 by Suzan Syrett
