I quickly got wrapped up in the story as the pages flew past and I became engrossed in Jeff's discoveries. Especially when his discoveries led to unveiling secrets from Richard's past and his own traumatic childhood.
Murder on the Mind was a great debut in this suspenseful series. With a paranormal twist to it that kept me hooked, I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
--Cozy Mystery Book Reviews
"A high-powered drama filled with interesting characters that add dimension to a tightly paced story with a good kick at the end."
-- RT Book Reviews
"This was a thoroughly entertaining mystery with a bit of the paranormal throughout. Not only was the mystery interesting, but so was the development of the relationship between the half-brothers. The author did a wonderful job of walking the two through their problems with one another. I highly recommended this book and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series."
About the Author
The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorraine Bartlett's pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it's her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series, the Tales of Telenia adventure-fantasy saga, and now the Lotus Bay Mysteries, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

Do the 4-5 star ratings correlate to the book being free? Several different plot lines were never fleshed out. The characters are poorly developed and more so very uninteresting. We're randomly given fragmented backstories of the brothers that only serve to confuse us and throw us out of the plot. Who the heck was the lady in the bakery?! There was no twist or mystery who dunnit, so I'm perplexed why the authorities were in the dark about it. A rookie investigator/CSI could have figured it out. An easy book to put down and simply forget it ever existed. There's barely a dash of suspense in the entire story. I'm almost done and it feels like I've made no progress. The rich brother and his girlfriend are such dull sidekicks I wanted to kill them. The murderess does not even appear until near the end.
I didn’t particularly enjoy the “psychic detective” aspect of the book as it feels like it has been done many times before and in the best of books it is patently ridiculous. The story would have been better if he just used his intellect (and his brother’s connections) to solve the crime.
I liked Jeff as a character, particularly because of his flaws. The relationship between Jeff and his brother Richard was believable and well rounded, but Richard’s girlfriend Brenda was a bit underdeveloped.
This was a good debut novel and I look forward to reading more from this author.
Each character had a level of depth that you rarely find in books nowadays. I especially liked Jeff (the main character) and found myself cracking up at almost all of his unspoken thoughts (and a few of his spoken ones too lol). Almost everyone had an interesting and not-so-picture-perfect past that made the story even more believable.
Now I'm not saying that the story itself was not good as it was well written (with very few instances of flawed grammar). It's just that for me, the characters are what really made it memorable. Definitely worth the read and the next installment doesn't look bad either.
Following a vicious mugging in Manhattan, Jeff Resnick is left with a broken arm and a brain injury -- and some kind of psychic powers that he doesn't understand.
Upon leaving the hospital, he recuperates at the home of his older half-brother in Buffalo. His visions turn out to be connected to a murder. Although Jeff discovers the identity of the killer, he knows he must have evidence, not just what he senses from his visions.
If I had proofread this book, I would have made 6 corrections.
