Bree is a character that I liked from the first few "pages". Complicated with a few issues, it's like peeling one layer of her at a time, as you get to know her. She does dumb things, makes bad choices, but is a good person. Her many pets who "own" her, are believable. She's the only one who doesn't seem aware of how appealing she is, to the many men in her life. Great read! I can hardly wait to see what trouble she gets into next!

If you can't handle reading kindle books with atrocious editing (formatting, spelling, context mistakes, et al) you probably want to skip this one or try the paperback version.

However, if you can get past the editing debacle, I think Kate George has good story telling abilities.

I will read the next book, California Schemin', with the hopes the story is still there and she found a better editor - will have to get from the library though, hate paying for a book that has so many errors.

Format: Paperback
Kate's first, award-winning novel moves along with lots of action and romance. No graphic violence and no danger to the many animals appearing throughout the story. Different for the heroine as she gets beaten, stabbed and muddy while looking for the other "most likely to have committed murder" person. A good fast-moving read for an evening's entertainment with lots of twists and surprises.

I borrowed Moonlighting in Vermont from another Kindler through the Lendle.me website.
Overall: 3.5 stars

Plot/Storyline: 4 stars
Definitely plot-driven, the book got off to a fast start before making a mercifully brief digression to provide the seemingly obligatory background. The frequent pauses for animal care annoyed me, as did Bree's falls and the sex scenes - they just distracted from the plot. Brooks' focus on Bree as his prime suspect turned into a serious plot hole. Whodunit was pretty obvious, and the red herrings were more satisfying than the actual resolution. But the bottom line is that this book kept me reading and made me want to read the next in spite of the flaws.

Characters: 4 stars
George's characters feel stronger and more realistic than they are. It wasn't until later that I realized I hadn't been given any reason to find Meg's wandering eye or Rob's protectiveness or Brooks' obsession with Bree's guilt believable. Tom's brother is sometimes named Beau and sometimes Beaux. But Bree is a likable and admirable heroine. She has decided what is important in her life. She wants a romantic relationship but not desperately enough to believe anything her erstwhile boyfriend says, a pleasant change from single women blinded by their emotional needs.

Writing style: 4 stars
Sentence structure is fine. Dialogue moves right along, but did not achieve distinct voices for the characters. Descriptions did not mesh in tone with plot action; several times I felt George was building up to something happening that didn't.

Formatting: 2 stars
The book had major formatting problems, and George really needs to pull the current sale file and revise it. Some paragraphs were broken in the middle. The type size changed frequently, as often as two or three times per page, a serious distraction from the plot. Neither adjusting the type size nor the type color fixed the problem.

This book started out so poorly. We have a murder right off, and then our character just goes on about how all the males in her life are in love with her and all the local women are being so mean to her. It isn't until the last quarter of the book that she finally decides to investigate. "The red herring" of the book is so unbelievable, it was a waste. But, I have to admit, the last part of the book redeemed the author, she did well concluding the story (many authors start great and then blow it). So since the last part is what I remember, I would probably pick up another one of her books.

An enjoyable read with fun and realistic characters and situations. Bree works 2 jobs - by day, at a newspaper, at nite as a maid at a local resort. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book - the writing is fresh and fun, the characters a bit sassy.

Just a note: the ebook formatting is terrible - sentences mysteriously continue a few lines later. Font changes size. Some text indented for no reason. Dialogue mushed together (or worse, separated by blank lines). But overall, a nice fun read.

Moonlighting in Vermont was disappointing. The leading characters were mildly amusing, but shallow. The mystery was pretty mundane and the crime-solving was more a matter of wandering around than sleuthing. The motive for the crime seemed implausible. The main subplot was worse. There's a lot of just plain unnecessary fluff. The writing was fair, but the consecutively quoted conversations were a little quirky.

The formatting for Kindle was among the worst I've run into.

This book made it just above my cutoff for reading to the end. In retrospect, I don't think it was worth the time or the $2.50 price tag. I've read a number of $0.99 and free books that were much better. I recommend passing this one by, or at least reading the free sample before you buy.

The book just didn't go anywhere or do anything until the very end!?! It's a murder mystery/romance novel. All I got from it was the fact that every man wants her, she sleeps with the ones she likes, tells them she's not seeing anyone (cough/cough), hinting at a possible relationship angle with the guy, then moves on to the next. The murder mystery...what mystery? It wasn't even talked about hardly in the first 3/4's of the book. I will admit the ending was funnier by far, than the rest of the book put together (where again she ends up with another guy, after she's already told the one before she'd wait for him). And yes, like another reviewer brought up, the deceased is a woman named Vera, and yes, the main character goes to work (after Vera is dead) and Vera sends her off to do something. Really? And she won an award for this? The editing alone was horrible and the book wasn't far behind it. I felt like I spent my time wandering through this woman's exceptionally haphazard, disastrous life until the very end. Not something I look for in a book.
