Poolside with Brett: Brett Cornell Mystery - #1 (Volume 1) Paperback – February 8, 2012
About the Author
The events related in "Poolside with Brett" do not necessarily reflect what would happen in the real world, where Brett Cornell would probably be put in the slammer -- maybe even murdered -- as a result of his outrageous behavior. My aim, then, in writing this novel was simply to entertain the reader, and in that respect, I hope I have succeeded in doing so. Also available in this series: BRETT AEROBICIZES (Brett Cornell Mystery #2) BRETT ALWAYS WINS (Brett Cornell Mystery #3) WEDDING BELLS FOR BRETT (Brett Cornell Mystery #4) BRETT ENTERS THE SQUARE CIRCLE (Brett Cornell Mystery #5) BRETT GETS HAMMERED (Brett Cornell Mystery #6) -- Coming soon!

The book starts off on an optimistic note. Brett is in a good mood. He’s been winning at Poker and has also been star cast in an “adult” movie based on his good looks and sexuality. His ego is at an all time high.
It doesn’t matter that he has a Missing Persons case. Brett can juggle the investigations and the shoots required for the films. But when the Missing Person turns up dead, Brett has a stinker in his hands. How can he sort this out, without appearing as the prime suspect?
The book explores Brett and his unscrupulous behaviour which stays with you for the rest of the series. Brett is debonair. He also doesn’t care. He thinks on his feet and even though he has a huge inflated ego, he also has the eye for detail. He can spot a thing or two even though you think you’ve slipped one on him.
What I liked about this book was the absolutely rib-tickling way in which this was written. The funny sarcastic dialogues, the witty remarks, the brazenness of Brett (= which mind you is really outrageous!!!!) It all makes really pleasant reading. Also the characters were bizzare and whacko, adding to the humour element.
I didn’t expect the ending to be what it was because I was so involved in thinking about the characters. That being said, this is a comedy. There is a fair share of mystery in it, but at no point does the humour go entirely out of it. I found this an enjoyable book and of course, now I want to read the second and other further books of the Brett Cornell series!!
I loved this book. Apart from the usual unscrupulous bastard that Brett is, this one had a proper mystery too.
Laugh all the way reading this TOTAL ENTERTAINER
