I enjoyed everyone of these stories...three books and a short story.

The stories are independent with no repeated characters.

In order to be humorous, the characters were a little "out there," but that added to the fun.

The first story, "Party Crashers," centers on Jolie Goodman as a new salesperson for Neiman Marcus footwear department. She is grateful for this job because she quit her previous one over a question of ethics. She is "invited" to a party and therein begins the zaniness of party crashing and, of course, a murder or two.

In the second story, "In Deep Voodoo," Penny Francisco is newly divorced and owns a business across the street from her ex. His new love interest is painting "her" house, okay the house that her ex got in the settlement, pink...bright pink. There are many fleshed-out characters in this mystery that involves a good-looking PI who is searching for missing children. This book isn't as humorous, but it has its moments.

Roxann Beadleman helps relocate moms and children who have been in abusive relationships in "Got Your Number."
In the process she loses her job, finds her father, and a new love. None of the characters are reminiscent of those in the other books. The humor in this story centers on Roxann's quirky relationship with her cousin.

In "Bump in the Night," a short story, the protagonist proclaims that nothing good happens after midnight. She is divorced and opens her door to a not-so-former lover. By the end of the story we have seen a murder solved and her relationship with her ex resolved. A very complete and well-developed short story.

Though some serious topics underlie some of the stories, they are still light and enjoyable.

It is a great set of books for an extended and enjoyable read.

This set of books are brilliant to read with a dash of humour, fast action and a lot of suspense and romance. Each of these books are a stand alone read in their own right. Working out the murders is not easy as the plots are great and keep you guessing to the end. I highly recommend this set of books.

Got this from lending library, therefore do not regret money. However, time? First story was ok. Second was a sleeper, too predictable. The third story was the best of the lot and the short story was a waste of time. In fact after reading all the stories close together you can see the repetition of plotline clearly, even down to dialog repetition. I gave it a 3 because of the 3rd story mainly. It is an ok read, but recommend borrowing it.

This boxed set was labelled "humourous mysteries", but I failed to see any humour in them at all. The mystery and intrigue was there as each character from the three books wrestled with their past and found themselves involved in a murder. Overall they were an OK read but dealt with some dark issues. If you like murder mysteries with a romantic hunky hero coming to the rescue of the stricken heroine you will probably like these books.

I liked each of these books individually, but there is too much of a pattern in Bond's books-especially the books in this boxed set. The plot is someone gets killed, the main "heroine" of the story gets framed and some knight in shining armor tries to clear her name and protect her. In the end the girl is cleared and they live happily ever after. (I don't think that is a spoiler-we wouldn't read these books if there wasn't always a happy ending right? :-) So that is my biggest problem with these books.
Now to talk about the reason why I did give it 4 stars. Each book has it's own twists and turns and the characters are well developed. There is humor and romance. The sex scenes are the right balance of getting your heart racing a little bit without being more like porn in a book.
The first book, Party Crashers, I didn't want to read very bad based on the description. I'm from a small town and the whole idea of these women crashing parties just seemed a little childish. It was a really great story though. I felt so bad for Jolie-it seemed like she got sucked into these situations because she was so innocent and wanted to see the good in everyone. That is a great character trait but in today's society, not necessarily an asset. I did like that the "hero" character was not a cop or private investigator-that seems to be recurring theme too. I thought this book was an easy read and the resolution had an additional surprise that I don't think you will see coming-I sure didn't!
In Deep Voodoo was an interesting story. As you can guess by the title it has some supernatural, witchcraft/voodoo undertones. The whole story takes place during a community festival that revolves around voodoo and attracts visitors from all over. I felt like this book kind of went on and on.

I have read the first two books and have no desire to read the others, tho I probably will just because I have them. The books should do something to grab your attention right off the bat. Instead, they go on and on and on with the reader wondering when the plot would begin. In one book there were a lot of questions for which there was no answer after the murder was solved.
