"Jada Ryker has created another gripping,non-stop exciting story based on the adventures of Marisa Adair. ...(M)arisa deals with her own life, her nosy neighbor and friends with their struggles, some of which end in murder. The action moves quickly, the characters are well developed, and emotions are genuine and sometimes volatile. Just as the first book in the series, Book 2 of the Marisa Adair Mystery Series is engrossing, entertaining and well worth reading."
K. T. Bowes, bestselling author of The Artifact,wrote:
"I really enjoyed the first in this series, but absolutely loved this subsequent novel. The characters have been further developed and are seen with more of their weaknesses on show, the quirks and inadequacies remaining evident to the reader, who falls in love with them anyway...I enjoyed it and positively devoured it."
Karen Black, versatile author of Mountain Justice,wrote:
"I absolutely love the dialogue in this novel! Unlike the typical mystery, this novel brings a sense of humor, even when the situation is tense...while I enjoyed Murder Takes A Dare, I believe that Mayhem is better. The characters are delightful and memorable. The storyline keeps the reader intrigued, and the characters keep the reader engaged."
Dianne Harman, critically acclaimed author of Tea Party Teddy's Legacy, wrote:
"This is simply a wonderful read...Marisa is a very believable character and I was drawn into her story and her struggles. I admire the author for tackling some of the toughest problems in contemporary society...and weaving them into the story in a way that is honest and meaningful...Nice job,Ms. Ryker!"
