My wife and I have become huge fans of the Hedda Coffey series of novels. Schwartz writes with confident hand. She has a wonderful ability to develop characters - Even the bad guys are interesting. The author has a fine appreciation of a good sentence, and her dialogs are perfect. From book to book in the series, you get to know and like Hedda, of course, the bright and snotty hero of the stories. Hedda is like a good friend you would like to have a drink with, but not too close because she has a habit of attracting trouble. With each book I look forward to catching up with Jan, her tall lovely pal, and her travails in meeting a handsome young man 12 years her junior. Then there's Trob, a misanthropic genius who gets Hedda a lot of lucrative consulting assignments. Craig (formerly Craigasaurus until he lost weight) her gay veterinarian pal. Not to mention Jencks, Hedda's lover, who always seems to be away on assignment in the Middle East. Of course, in this book, we meet Po Thang, a stray dog that dog loving Hedda adopts. Jinx Schwartz weaves all of these characters into fast moving and satisfying plots. Schwartz is a story teller, the finest complement I can give a writer. Just the Pits is voted five stars. I'd give it ten if I could. Great work!

Just the Pits - Actually 3 1/2. I enjoyed the story and the writing was enjoyable and quirky. However, while reading I felt that, many times, I was missing “something”. What I was missing was the ‘history’ of the previous novels that I hadn’t read. I didn’t realize this was book “#5” in the series! My mistake. Sometimes ‘series’ novels can stand-alone. This one ‘sorta’ did, but character development and scenes tend to transfer from one novel to the next – I felt left out on this one.

Will I go back to read the previous novels? Probably not. Would I read other novels by this author? Probably yes (I like the style)…

Jinx is certainly on a roll with the Hetta series! Hetta is the funniest character I've read about for a long time. If Jinx keeps writing, I'll be reading them..I read at least 1 book a week and that's just reading at bedtime. If I'm off of work, I'll read a book a day. There just isn't enough books about Hetta to fill my time. Jinx- write faster LOL!!!

In Just the Pits, Hetta Coffey is naturally in trouble again--we expect that, don't we? But this time, The Trob (her hiring agent and good friend) is actually paying her to use her naturally nosey skills--which just makes sense, 'cause Hetta will dig at a problem until it either comes clean or bleeds to death.

Some authors just get better and better, and Jinx Scwhartz is one of them! Just the Pits refers to the mine she's been hired to work at--uncovering the 20% overages in purchasing. Boring job? Nope, not with Hetta, and the author has really let loose with the fun, even the Mexican's think she's funny--they're probably still talking about how she drove that monster gravel hauler through traffic, then ditching it to leave the federales scratching their heads. The fun never stops (and who doesn't need a good laugh) besides, there's a darn good mystery in it too. Pick it up, better yet, read all of them, you won't be sorry.

I have read all of Jinx's books in this Series and they just get better with each one. I don't know how she is able to keep topping herself. Wonderful read. I read she has put together a box deal with the entire series. I am going to order them for Christmas presents. Mary K. Smalley

Half way through the book I started skimming because the story was tiresome and seemed to go nowhere. I forced myself to finish it. Near the end the pace picked up and it finished nicely.

Anyone who has had a taste of Baja California Sur and especially those who have sailed the Sea of Cortez, will be fascinated with the wild and whacky Hetta Coffey as she fumbles her way into solving yet another mysterious crime in the picturesque and historic village/city of Santa Rosalia. Jinx has created another fun-filled and exciting escapade with drama, romance, mystery and plenty of laughs as Hetta solves another Mexican dilima with her colorful caste of co-horts on board her beloved "Raymond Johnson". This one leaves the reader anticipating the next and the next and the next of Hetta's sleuthing extraordinaire and you don't have to have sea salt in your blood to appreciate the work of Jinx Schwartz.

There was a lot of unnecessary info given that I did not think added to the book or the character. The action did not start fast enough. It took me 6 months to read because I kept thinking it would pick up on the next page. It did end well. I did like the last 10-15 pages.
