From the Author
But it's not all jokes and one-liners; Maggie finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation in every book. With a host of zany characters at WYME, the help of her flamboyant mother, Lola, and a hot detective named Rafe, Maggie does her best to solve the murders and bring the killers to justice.
Top Customer Reviews
"Stay Tuned for Murder" begins with Maggie hosting her radio show along with guest Chantel Carrington, a flamboyant psychic who claims she can communicate with the dead. While Maggie doesn't trust Chantel, she agrees to attend a séance Chantel is holding at the local historical society. During the gathering, Chantel warns everyone they are in grave danger from an evil presence. The next day, one of those attendees is murdered in her own home. Is this just a coincidence or is there more to Chantel's self-proclaimed status of medium and oracle than it appears? Maggie is determined to find out more about the murder and about the mysterious "Madame Chantel."
Author Mary Kennedy has a clinical psychology practice, and her experience gives credibility to the character of Maggie. Maggie occasionally references psychological theories that help her in her detecting. This makes the book and the entire series unique.
One downside to the book is the lack of involvement of Maggie's mother Lola and Maggie's housemate Lark. While they make several appearances, they aren't involved in the main plot past the first few chapters. Maggie's on-again/off-again boyfriend and police detective Rafe Martino also appears, but the two are definitely in the "off" stage of their relationship.Read more ›
As for this book, it was pretty good. The characters were great as they were in the other book I read. The writing was wonderful, with a flow like a raging river, nonstop from start to finish. I again liked the feel of that bit different murder mystery book. It had basically one plot, but it was more than enough to keep you guessing. This one had a couple tiny subplots, but they only added to the reading fun. I must say I really was not sure about the new character of Chantel. I came to dislike her mostly because of my extreme like for Maggie and how Chantel seemed to be under Maggie's skin all the time. She just was one of those "I'm better than you" characters, that I just love to hate.
I would recommend this book if you are looking for a new and interesting murder mystery.
I was a bit apprehensive about picking up Stay Tuned for Murder. It's not because I thought it would be bad, quite the opposite in fact. I've read and absolutely loved the first two books in this series. Growing up two of my favorite shows were Frasier and Murder She Wrote, and this series definitely combines the best elements of these two shows.
I liked the mystery part of this book. The addition of Madame Chantel was very interesting, especially with her on-air "chats" with the dead. As I noted in a previous book in this series I love the way that Maggie solves the crime in a clinical way. Maggie is such a great character - she's strong, determined and a genius at solving crimes!
I loved the way the story ended, especially with Rafe and Maggie. I won't give away any spoilers, because you all are going to be wanting to grab this book for yourselves and find out! I will say it has a very satisfying ending and I'm hoping and praying one day there will be more books in this series!
Maggie Walsh, talk show psychologist for radio station WYME is pondering the murder of two longtime Cypress Grove residences, Althea Somerset from the Cypress Grove Historical Society and Mildred Smoot the town's librarian. Both have were murdered but for no apparent reason. Nothing was stolen and there was no abuse.Read more ›
