If you enjoy a cozy mystery with vividly drawn characters (some very quirky); a scenic description of a rustic college town; and if you love racking your brain trying to figure "whodunit" and why, then "Death By Hitchcock" is a winner and you should gobble this one up immediately.
I'm not a cozy mystery reader, but this one had me spinning my wheels and trying to outguess the author. Thinking I'd snared the culprit again and again (each time, a different one) I loved being taken down the garden path, and now truly understand why this genre has so many devoted fans. Kudos to Ms. Grodin. A well-deserved 5 stars!
Author of "Mad Dog House" and "Love Gone Mad"
Why I stopped reading: Reader abandoned the novel due to lack of developing story and failure by the author to seriously create any interest in the characters within the first 45 pages. With respect to the author, the first stages of the book come across as rudimentary and uninteresting, appealing to no one outside perhaps a very narrowly defined segment. Think Murder She Wrote for cat-loving teetotalers, or perhaps a real life Dolores Umbridge . . . as the target reader. The juvenile character treatment and naming conventions (i.e., “Chaz Winner,” “Mary Buttery,” “Honeysuckle Blessington,” “Nedda Cake,” “Bunny Baldwin”) distracted the reader to the point of dangerous eye rolling. The book comes across as a slightly more mature version of Nancy Drew (although a spattering of teenage vulnerability and cleverness might have woken this novel up a little). Faced with the prospect of plowing through another 150 pages of shallow plot and yarn-woven characters, the reader cried uncle and tagged as DNF.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book. I reviewed it voluntarily.
