Editorial Reviews


Reviewed by Melinda Hills for Readers' Favorite:

"Jada Ryker weaves a complex mystery with the help of characters that are far from ordinary sleuths in the entertaining, fast-paced and exciting story, Murder Takes a Dare. Imaginative yet quite realistic, the first book in the Marisa Adair Mystery Adventure Series bares the souls of the characters while allowing them to function with their new-found strengths and determination. There is plenty of humor tucked in between the action, making this an enjoyable story with plenty of twists and turns of nail-biting adventure."

Dennis Lively, bestselling  author of Dear Diary...The New Martinsville Murders (AMurderous Thriller), wrote:
"When I first read the hype about this book, it got me  wondering. How is an author going to handle a recovering addict, an  ex-stripper, a nursing home with all its goofy characters, an old couple  falling in love, a myriad of crazy characters and situations, and...oh yeah, a  few murders? I highly recommend this book..."
K. T. Bowes, talented  author of The Hana Du Rose Mysteries,wrote:
"All of the characters seemed to be flawed within their  personality in some way, so that no one persona came across as 'perfect' which  gave the novel an element of reality, that was incredibly touching and made the  reader feel affection for them...I loved this novel..."
Debbie Herbert, bestselling  Harlequin author of Siren's Secret,wrote:
"Murder at a nursing home? Geriatric sleuths? Even a  stripper or two on the grounds? It all works beautifully in Jada Ryker's novel.
"Somehow this book manages to be both gritty and  humorous. The author's fine sense of play is a refreshing backdrop against the  tough issues: betrayal, addiction, murder and family dysfunction."
