Sarah has always had psychic abilities. While living in Massachusetts, she assisted in a police investigation that caused her to relocate to Florida to hide from the stigma and embarrassment that her abilities caused. Now in sunny Florida she hopes to leave that all behind her and have a quiet life as an artist. Unfortunately... While walking her dog she stumbles over a dead body on a golf course. Now Sarah is sucked into the investigation and in doing so finds romance and confidence in herself.
This writer gets five stars for her great use of dialogue to move the plot. I really like writers who use less descriptive prose and more character interaction to move the story along. I thought the dialogue was clever and well written and the plot well executed. I liked that we did not know everything about Sarah and Raven ( her love interest) right away and we got to learn what was happening with the main characters. (So if you like a lot of description, backstory and scene setting this book might not be a fav.) Her characters were so likable, I could barely wait to see what happened to them next. Sarah, while insecure at times, was still strong and capable. I also liked the level of romance and flirting and for this type of book, that she kept the sex scenes out- it would have detracted from the mystery and intrigue.
I ate this book up in less than two days. One downside is that the paragraphs seems a bit messed up on formatting... But for me it was not a distraction. If you like Victoria Laurie or Cheryl Bradshaw then you might like this type of novel. I look forward to reading more of Sarah and Raven; Great start to a new series.
One year ago, Sarah had visions of an older woman's brutal murder in a quaint New England village, and thinking that she could help the investigation, she told the police about her visions, and was considered a nut case and prime suspect until the real killer was revealed.
Seeking to get away from the reminders of the past, Sarah moved to Florida's west coast, in a little house off the thirteenth fairway of a golf course on a cul-de-sac street named Spyglass Lane. Sarah's quieter, simpler life was once again turned upside down when she had a vision while walking Sparky along the golf cart path near the thirteenth green. The vision was of a dead blonde haired woman wit diamonds buried in the sand trap. Thinking 'here we go again,' Sarah seeks assistance from her handsome pirate look alike neighbor, Raven DeVille. Sarah and Raven become sleuths and embark on their own investigation to solve the murder case. Will their investigation lead them to solve the murder case, or will it lead them to become the murderer's next victims?
Murder on Spyglass Lane is an entertainingly suspenseful cozy murder mystery. The storyline is well written, with an intriguing plot that is action packed with a lot of suspense, drama, twists and turns that will keep the reader guessing what will happen next. The author provides the reader with a story that is fast paced, with a great dialogue and enough drama and mayhem to keep them enthralled and turning the pages. I really liked how the author balanced the suspense of the murder mystery with Sarah's psychic ability and a light flirty romance added into the mix.
The author provides a cast of characters that are down-to-earth, realistic, and quirky. It was really fun getting to know Sarah, Raven, Sparky and Sarah's "mature" golfing buddies. The dialogue and interactions between Sarah and raven were down right entertaining. I found myself laughing quite a bit as I followed along with their sleuthing adventures.
Murder on Spyglass Lane is a thoroughly enjoyable and quick read that will keep you guessing until the very surprising ending. Cozy mystery fans, this is one novel that you definitely need to add to your reading list!
